Firstly, I need to say that WinSCP is absolutely wonderful. I use it to transfer files to my web hosting provider securely.

My question is this: when I click the "Login" button in WinSCP, is my username and password being sent over the internet in plain text, or is it encrypted before it is sent?

Thank you!
