#15379: Need warning on "remember password" checkbox
 Reporter:  IBeaumont  |      Owner:  rekkanoryo
     Type:  defect     |     Status:  new
Milestone:             |  Component:  unclassified
  Version:  2.10.6     |   Keywords:
 The "remember password" checkbox should have a warning that it is not
 secure and point the user to the Wiki page about saving passwords as plain
 text. You can't expect people to have read the Wiki page if they don't
 know it is there. If you put a warning on the dialog to at least point
 them to the wiki page then people will be aware of the issues.
 Most people would assume that if you are saving a password it is secure,
 and you aren't warning them otherwise. You aren't taking security
