I think it is critical to have the option to not
locally store passwords (especially in plain text!).
This is actually keeping me from using JFtp right now.
Storing passwords for insecure protocols such as FTP
isn't that big of a deal, but I cannot use an app that
stores my SFTP password(s) on disk, especially in plain
What I would suggest for this enhancement would be to
perhaps have a checkbox "Ask for password" (or "Don't
Save Password") in the "Connect to..." dialogs. The
setting could be saved with the rest of the connection
info. Then whenever the connection is attempted the
user would be prompted to enter the password (which
would not be saved anywhere).
