#3208 closed Bug report

Passwords saved unencrypted

Reported by: chris95 Owned by:
Priority: high Component: Other
Keywords: Cc: chris95, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


Using FileZilla 3.0.0 I found out, that all data you enter concerning the servers to connect to is stored in the folder documents and settings\<username>\app data\FileZilla, especially in filezilla.xml and sitemanager.xml.

The point is: The passwords are written to these files in clear text.

In FileZilla 2 it was at least encrypted in some way.

For security-reasons: Can you change this again?

This is by design. It's the task of the operating system to protect the user's settings.
