            I would like to use “send keystrokes” for a username and password.  Is there a way to encrypt and hide/obfuscate the password, the same way it is protected with the “Log on to FTP”? Something a step up from the “disguise initial value” checkbox in a variable so It can’t ever be viewed again.

            This is intended for an application process that logs in as a particular user account on an emulator session.  The actions have to be done through the emulator session window and not sent in a job or script though something like skybot.  This is why “send keystrokes” would be ideal if we could secure the login process of it.

I did see this post that for the most part is asking the same thing:

But it was for automate 9 and maybe automate 10 has something new?  I am on, but I see there are newer releases available.

If not, how do we go about requesting a feature for a variable option to set as password and obfuscate its value?  It seems others want to do this as well.

Thanks for your time.
