By default, IntelliJ IDEA saves your passwords for version control repositories, databases, and other protected resources. Configure the way the passwords are saved:
|In native Keychain|
Use the native keychain app.
This option is not available for Windows. macOS uses Keychain Access. For Linux, it depends on the desktop environment and available apps: if you have both GNOME Keyring and KWallet, IntelliJ IDEA will use GNOME Keyring for compatibility reasons because KWallet was not supported in previous versions.
Use the KeePass password manager.
|Do not save, forget passwords after restart||Do not remember any passwords and always prompt for credentials to protected resources.|
