What is the best way to store password inside a script?

Recommended Posts



my script using encryption password to read & decrypt the date from here:


with the function _StringEncrypt().

it is working excellent but the password is stored in the script inside _StringEncrypt()..

I wanted to know if there is a safer way to store the password inside the script.

i know about Obfuscator but maybe you have additional ideas that will Improve the security for the password.

thanks for helpers

There is no safe way, once the script is decompiled the password can be easily retrieved wether it's rawly showed or not.

Edit: The answer is: Don't use autoit if you have private data in your code.
