Is there a way to save credentials or generated uuid permanently?

Post by lollisoft » Sun May 10, 2015 9:07 am

Hi,

I am thinking of a login feature into my application to enable community around it. Therefore a simple login screen would help and I have one.

But, how could I save - securely - parts of the credentials like account ID and passwords or a uuid?

I know there are ways to do it by my own, but I do not like to reinvent the wheel.

For example, on a Mac, there exists a credentials store and surely there are mechanisms on Windows and Linux...

Thanks, Lothar

There is nothing for this in wxWidgets.

For Windows:

I don't know about Linux.
Use the source, Luke!
