WebStorm 2016.2 Help

Setup Master Password Dialog

If your master password is not set yet, you can open this dialog by clicking Master Password on the Passwords page.


Specify the password that you want to be set as your master password. ( The master password is used to access the WebStorm password database where - if so specified - your passwords are stored. Instead of the individual passwords, you'll be able to use your master password.)

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

Item Description
Password Specify the master password.
Confirm password Type the master password once more.
Encrypt with OS user credentials For Windows only: if you select this check box, the master password itself will be stored encrypted in the password database. (Your Windows logon credentials will be used for encryption.)

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