There are a number of reasons for it.  

One that comes to mind, for example, is if your user accounts expire, (also perhaps, if you just forgot passwords, or there is some other user authentication issue) -  you will not be able to get into Cache to extend the expiry date, effectively - you will be locked out.

Starting Cache in Emergency Access Mode will allow you to specify a one-time, single-use account you can use to log into Cache, then into security settings, and, re-enable those account that should no longer be disabled.

You can then restart Cache with emergency access and you will be able to access Cache again using your newly re-enabled user accounts.
