In this page, configure how you want WebStorm to store passwords for accessing remote Git repositories. These settings are valid at the WebStorm level, that is, they apply to passwords for all remote Git repositories you use from WebStorm.

Item Description
Do not remember passwords When this option is selected, WebStorm does not store passwords and asks you to enter the password on every attempt to access a remote Git repository.
Remember passwords until the application is closed When this option is selected, WebStorm stores a password only during one session. Upon the session end, the password is cleared from the memory.
Remember on disk (protected with master password) Select this option to have WebStorm save all passwords to remote repositories in a passwords database protected by single master password. When you attempt to access a remote Git repository, WebStorm does not request on the corresponding password, but asks you to specify the master password and retrieves the repository password automatically.
Reset Master Password Click this button to open the Master Password / Reset Master Password dialog box and specify a master password for the first time or reset the existing master password.

Warning

If you reset a master password, all the previously saved master passwords are cleared.

Change Master Password Click this button to change the existing master password in the Change Master Password dialog box.

Note

WebStorm preserves the history of updates to the master password, until you reset it.
