Hi

When exporting all connection to an xml file, Is there any option to encrypt passwords? Currently all passwords and stored in plain text.

The idea of unencrypted passwords is, that you can import them to any other system.
There was no such request till now. Everybody requests external credentials managers or export of unencrypted passwords.

Thank you for your reply, What about adding a checkbox option to encrypt passwords or not?

Export to the text file creates file, which should be available for import on all machines or as backup. Encryption of all passwords is done using master password. If you change the master password, even after reinstall on the same machine, you cant decrypt the passwords.
So from my point of view, number of scenarios, where this check box is use full is small and i dont recommend to go that way.
