I usually use an INI file for the task. You can name the INI anything you like if you want to make it a bit harder to have someone read it. Just remember any INI can be read in notepad. Take a look at the following commands for guidance:

IniRead

IniWrite

IniReadSection

IniWriteSection

You could use _StringEncrypt. Also you could choose to store this data in the registry so you always know where it is, even when the user moves the application.

Something like this:

#include<String.au3>
$Password = "p@ssw0rd"
$PrivatePass = "mykey123"

RegWrite("HKLM\SOFTWARE\MyApp")
RegWrite("HKLM\SOFTWARE\MyApp\Data")
RegWrite( "HKLM\SOFTWARE\MyApp\Data", "Password", "REG_SZ", _StringEncrypt( 1, $Password, $PrivatePass ) )

$getpass = RegRead( "HKLM\SOFTWARE\MyApp\Data", "Password" )
MsgBox(0, "TEST READ PASS", _StringEncrypt( 0, $getpass, $PrivatePass ))

Keep in mind that having a private key in your autoit script like this is not secure, but I do not believe that it is possible to fully secure an au3 script in any manner, you can just make it more difficult.
