summary: Remember entered password for reconnecting a dead session
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: tricky: Needs many tuits.
depends: reuse-windows
priority: never: We don't ever intend to fix this.

Some people would like for PuTTY to remember any password entered, and submit it without the user's intervention in the event of an unclean disconnect (often in conjunction with automatically reconnecting) so they don't have to type it again.

I don't think we'll be implementing this, for much the same reasons we won't implement storing the password in saved settings. We go to some lengths to avoid passwords hanging around in memory, so we're hardly likely to do it deliberately.
