In this article, we will show you how to save login credentials for your SSH account from within Xshell. For this example, we will assume that you already have a session created.

1) Open Xshell

2) Click the Open icon
xshell_auto_1

3) Select the session you wish to use and click Properties
xshell_auto_2

4) Click the Authentication option from the left menu
xshell_auto_3

5) Enter your User Name and Password for your SSH account. Once entered, click OK.
xshell_auto_4

That’s it!

  • Hi,

    Is there any way to show the masked-password in XShell particular account login?

    I have many VPS servers to maintain, and I didn’t save the credential login in a notepad or file, as it’s very risky. But, sometimes I forgot what the password is.

    Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Regards,

    • Hello Yanto,

      I am very sorry, but I am unaware of any way to do this. From what I can see, once it is masked there is no way to convert this to plain text again.
