Re: Stored password displayed on screen and in log file

Thanks for your post.

This issue has been added to the tracker:

Stored password displayed on screen and in log file

When establishing a connection saved in WinSCP GUI, the program displays the password in plain text on the console and in the log file.

Establish a session in the GUI and store the password, then in a script, establish a connection using the saved information


GUI & Log:
In scripting you should not rely on saved sites, use this command instead:

Expected: Do not display the stored password
