ability not to save password on password authentication

Just what it says... I'd like the ability to not save my password with the session, I prefer to have to type it in. I realize the password is encrypted in the registry, but I'd still like the option not to save it if possible.
thanks, very useful tool btw.

You don't have to save it. Just try :-)

I second this!

It seems you can either save user+host+pass
or nothing at all. Something like what Tera Term Pro or HostExplorer allows, the saving
of host+user and prompting for pass would be
nice.

You can do it. Have you tried? Just store session without password and than double-click it. You'll be asked for password few seconds later (after connection with server is established). If it does not work for you, post a log file.

Yes, it does prompt the first time. but if you exit and
use that session again you are not prompted for the
password (it stires it).

OK, I see :-)
Thanks for letting me know. I'll fix it with next realease. Currently as a workaround, you may turn off "Remember last used directory" option on 'Directories' tab of Login dialog. I suppose that this causes the trouble.

Re: ability not to save password on password authentication

I have a somewhat similar request. I like how WinSCP asks for a password if it is not stored in the session. I would like an option that prevents someone from storing a password when they are defining a session.
