Re: Does the Workbench vault have a master password?

Hi Mike, unfortunately is is not a good answer. Imagine that my laptop is stolen. As I did not drop the user, the thief would have access to my entire database unless we quickly change the credentials. However, it is not easy to change the credentials when a lot of hosts access to that database and a temporary downtime happens.

A master password (as FileZilla has) is much better. If the thief does not know it, we have enough time to change credentials calm and scheduled.

I guess that a master password is a must.
