    only if you input the user and pass in the settings of BackWPup than that will transmittet. And that will only transmittet if you use the cron service of BackWPup.
    U must only set the data if your blog behind a HTTP basic Auth (login), because without the data i can't call the wp-cron.php to start in that cases.

    NO WordPress User/Pass will transmitted!

    Thanks for clarifying out.

    You should be a little more specific. In your FAQ, "Yes, for some stats and for the cron service" should look more like "Yes, but only if you enable our cron service" (if it's that true and no stats are gathered even if your cron service is disabled).

    And (ideally) make the "Http basic authentication" options conditional to only appear when user enable "Use cron service of backwpup.com" option too, when i asume that user/pass data it's used (and i understand you need that data to call the wp-cron.php externally; totally understandable).

    Again, thanks for clarifying this thing out :)

    Great plugin, seriously. It's excelent.
    Awesome job ;)
