Is the proxy password being encrypted by the master password as well?
(I searched, but did not find the answer to this particular question)

Thanks

Yes, all passwords are encrypted, including proxy and tunnel passwords.

One more question please:
Can the use of a master password be enforced?
The documentation mentions some restrictions to be configured, but not this one.

No. How do image this would work? Would use be required to set up a master password on a first run? Or disallowed to save a password, unless he sets up a master password?

Thanks.
Both options you mentioned would work. I admit it would be a bit annoying for users.
