Answer The password is either fully visible in your source code and therefore somewhat unprotected or you use the standard encryptiong mechanism provided. See Developer Info provided. Now your password is retrieved from the encrypted file. Still anybody can decrypt the password himself if he has access to that encrypted file which is in a hidden subdirectory or your homedirectory. There is no interactive mode supplied at this time. If you are interested in such a feature simply file an Issue with the Bugtracker/Issues link in the menu of this website.
