Decrypt server password knowing the master key

#1 Post by KMI18 » 2018-10-12 12:56

Hello,

Is there an option revealing password to one of the servers knowing the master key?

Have a look at the passwords page in the settings dialog.

Hi

When I attempt a file upload or download from the FTP Server , I get this message requiring a Master Password,

None of my "master passwords" have been accepted, I did find a reference to this feature in Setup, and attempted to change the setting to not require Master Password, guess what, you have to enter the current (but unknown) master password to change the setting,

I attempted to upload the screen message, but again was blocked by the Master Password requirement, seems like a hopeless effort,

I welcome any suggestions on revealing or better - Resetting the master password,

Thank you

Jim.

Sounds like the master password is working correctly if you cannot access your protected passwords without a master password.

You can disable master passwords, but that will result in all protected passwords being thrown away.
