    Weird security issue: Password in clear


    There is this weird (minor) security quirk. When i am logged in, all my password are in clear in the password and encryption tool.

    All i have to do is open the tool and select the password and encryption tool and i have everything i need. Of course, i need to be logged in to display all my passwords, but i believe the default behavior should be that it is locked by default (when i log in).

    Is there a setting for that?
