PhpStorm 2018.2 Help

Master Password / Reset Master Password Dialog

Specify your new master password.

You can set the password empty. As a result, PhpStorm won't ask you for the password when accessing the password database. However, the security of your passwords in that case will be lower.

To come back to the previous dialog, click Enter or Change.

Item

Description

New password

Specify your new master password.

Confirm password

Type the new master password once more.

Encrypt with OS user credentials

For Windows only: if you select this checkbox, the master password itself will be stored encrypted in the password database. (Your Windows logon credentials will be used for encryption.)

As a result, PhpStorm won't ask you for the master password when accessing the password database.

Enter or Change

If you decided not to reset the password (e.g. you remembered it), click this button to come back to the previous dialog.
