myPlex Password Stored In Plain-text



I've noticed that the myPlex password entered in the Plex client (maybe the media server as well, I haven't checked) is stored in plain text - I'm sure this is just a bug or temporary measure while in beta, but I'd like to see it changed as it isn't great practice to store my password next to my email address in plain text!

The file in question is:

~/Library/Application Support/Plex/userdata/guisettings.xml

Anyone using the same password for myPlex as anything else should strongly consider changing their password. (Obviously you shouldn't have the same password anyway, but many people do)


Thanks for letting us know. Will pass this on to Elan.


On the list, thanks!
