Storing FTP passwords in WISE-FTP can be convenient, but it poses a significant security risk as passwords are saved in plain text files. Anyone with access to your computer can easily steal them. The consequences of unauthorized access to your server can be catastrophic.
To ensure your passwords are kept safe, we highly recommend using a password manager. Look for a tool that encrypts data both on your hard disk and in memory and allows you to automatically input access data into WISE-FTP. Our recommended password manager is Password Depot.
With Password Depot, you can manage up to 20 passwords for free. For team collaboration, you can use shared databases and eliminate the need for emailing password changes. To share with a team, you will need the Enterprise Server module, which is also free for up to three users. Don't compromise on password security – protect your data with Password Depot.
