Specifies how to encrypt passwords you use in macros. Applies only to values of password fields. Password fields are the ones where words are displayed using asterisks (*). Setting this variable in your macro will overwrite the settings in the Options -> Security tab.

  1. No encryption
    The password is stored inside the macro in plain text. To activate this option, set !ENCRYPTION to NO.
  2. Encrypted web site passwords
    Passwords are encrypted by a master password that is stored on your own computer. To activate this option, set !ENCRYPTION to STOREDKEY.
  3. Encrypted web site passwords and ask for the Master Password
    The master password is not stored. It is only kept temporarily in memory while you run the macros. To activate this option, set !ENCRYPTION to TMPKEY.
