Security Implications of Remembering Passwords

The Remember Password option should only be used on your own personal machine.

If the Remember Password option is used on a shared or public machine, then anyone with access to that machine will have your access to the system.

The remembered password only exists on one machine. If you have remembered the password on one machine, then remember the password on another machine, the password will be forgotten on the first machine.

The password can also be forgotten from the Preferences menu.

For the technically inclined, the Remember Password option works by storing a cookie on the machine. The cookie contains a large random number which the server can associate with your account. Note that your UserName and Password are never stored in the cookie.
