You mean from within the panel, protected folders section?

It's important to be able to look-up your own passwords here. Keep in mind, these logins are just to protect access to a page, and are not considered sensitive ... They do not allow anyone with access to actually do anything. So I am wondering, is the website-owner worried that someone is spying on the screen from a public location, in which case they would be able to view a page and that's it?

Working in IT, I was also a bit "surprised" to see those in clear text after the update.

Thanks Karl for taking care of it ! :wink:

I've agree with Karl. It doesn't matter to see my own password. Its better the owner can check it out their passwords correct or not. :D
