All settings except the master password are stored on your local PC as a cookie, so the settings will be the same next time you visit this page. If you'd like to store the master password also, check the Save master password checkbox. The master password will then be stored encrypted as an cookie on your local machine. Saving the master password, even though it's encrypted with AES encryption, is not completely secure; you are sacrificing some security for convenience. Theoretically, a hacker could determine your master password if he:
- Could access the encrypted master password and key, stored as cookies, on your PC
- Knew to use AES-256 to decrypt the master password
Even then, a hacker wouldn't be able to use the master password to login anywhere if you only use generated passwords for your passwords. Moreover, a succesful login to any system also requires a username.
In any case, if this security risk concerns you, you shouldn't check the "Save master password" checkbox. If you've checked it by mistake, simply clear your cookies or, alternatively, uncheck the Save master password box and navigate away from this page. This forces an empty value to be stored for the master password.
