FTP and Zip Passwords Masked and Encrypted
In an effort to remain vigilant in cyber security practices to protect sensitive information within Customer Master, FTP and Zip Password fields have been masked and encrypted. Password characters will display as asterisks, and the password can be unmasked by clicking in the password field. Users at companies utilizing MACC’s Security can unmask the password fields if they have the correct security roles.
