*'''Not at all''' - the master password is not stored anywhere at any time (memory or disk). This is the most secure option, but also the least convenient because you are prompted to enter the master password everytime a password is generated.

*'''In memory''' - the master password is stored encrypted in the browser's memory but not on disk. This option provides a reasonable trade-off between security and convenience. You won't be prompted to enter the master password again until all browser instances have closed (disposing memory contents), and the browser is re-opened. The master password is encrypted in memory so that if it's written to disk by the operating system as part of a swap file/paging file, it can't easily be decrypted.

*'''Store master password on disk and in memory''' - the master password is stored encrypted on the local hard drive and in memory. This option is the least secure, but the most convenient. You won't ever be prompted to enter the master password when using this option. Note: although the encryption used to store the master password is strong, the encryption/decryption key is also stored on your local hard drive. This makes decryption of the master password relatively simple. You should not use this option unless either (a) you are the only person with access to the hard drive, or (b) you are comfortable with the master password possibly being decrypted by others.
