Hello WinSCP Forum!

Win SCP asks for a master password each time I start the program.

Question 1: Is it supposed to do that?

Question 2: Is there a way to keep WinSCP from asking for the master password each time the program is started?

I understand that a master password keeps malicious software that may have gotten onto my computer from accessing WinSCP. However, it gets a little annoysome having to enter the password each time.

Master password is optional. You must have enabled it yourself.

Disable it, if you do not like it:
