Priority: high Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Password storage Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows

I repeat the requests of the numereous tickets years ago:
This is not a new feature it is simply a BUG.

This basically very easy to use and very good product is totally unusable without secure password storage.
Pls., pls. concentrate to improve as fast as possible.
I couldnt believe, that the passwords are stored as more or less plain text. SFTP????
Regards Plusminus
P.S. Pls.!

Since passwords are not encrypted, we are looking elsewhere for an FTP solution. I like the fact that FileZilla has multiple tabs and can keep them open. But I am concerned that other pieces of the software may not be as secure as I had imagined. Since those at FileZilla seem so unconcerned about security, we just don't know if we can trust this software anymore.
