Every time I connect with WinSCP and type my password, I need to manually check "[ ] Remember password for this session". If I don't, I have to re-type the password up to dozens of times during one session.
The option of not remembering a password for the session seems completely unnecessary, but in any case its default is the wrong way around. At least 99% of the time I'd like the password to be remembered. Having to check "[ ] Remember" manually every time is a nuisance.
Remove the option. When the user wants a typed password to be forgotten, they disconnect. This is the industry standard.
Or, if this checkbox is really needed
- 1. Either default it to the value used the last time, or
2. offer a setting to choose the default, or
3. default it to checked (same as now but reverse).
