Since we noticed that some user on our internal network use FTP client like FileZilla or WinSCP that store password as plain text, we wonder, is there any FTP client (windows) that store passwords in a "secure" way?


Also, we know that could use cerificate and SSH methods, but question is only about password storage.

For SCP/SFTP method there is Bitvise Tunnelier that encrypt the password on the profile

Total Commander

It does not store password as FileZilla does but is considered to be more "secure".
