Note that a master password does not offer any additional security. It is no more secure than not saving passwords at all, functionality that has already been in FileZilla for many years.

Technically using a master password isn't even as secure. If not saving passwords, keylogging malware can only intercept those passwords that are entered while the malware is running. With master passwords, it immediately gets access to all encrypted passwords as soon a the master password is entered.
