How to Provide a Master Password in FileZilla CLI

To provide a master password enter the secret command:

    secret <password>

This command adds a password that will be attempted whenever a master password would
be needed to decrypt the credentials.

Different stored data might have originally been protected with different master passwords.
In this case you can add multiple passwords by using the secret command multiple
times.

If you have used either FileZilla or FileZilla Pro to save passwords protected by a master
password you’ll be prompted to enter the master password in order to decrypt credentials
when connecting. This is the master password created with FileZilla or FileZilla Pro. If a
password is provided in the connect command it will be attempted first.
