Support » Plugin: Online Backup for WordPress » Encryption Key Shows my Password!

    I’ve just started noticing that if no encryption key is manually entered it is showing an admin’s password (specifically mine). Is this supposed to happen? I work on dozens and dozens of WP sites as the admin. My password is an important secret for me which other admins can now easily see. Is something wrong or is your system set up this way?

    Hi,

    I believe this will be your web browser remembering passwords or autocompleting.

    The plugin can’t access your WordPress admin password. In fact once logged in not even wordpress can since it does not store it in readable form. The way it is stored is as a digest which is non reversible. When you login it digests the password you provided and compares. So it’s definitely the browser doing this I believe.

    That makes perfect sense. Thanks for taking the time to answer. I feel very relieved and love your plugin!
