How to remove or encrypt passwords in Burp Pro v2.1?

Hello, I recently switched to Burp Pro v2.1 from v1.7.34 and I can't seem to find the "Passwords" option under the "Burp" drop down menu. I can't keep test credentials in the burp project file unprotected. Where is the "Save encrypted using master password" or the "Do not save" options for Passwords in the new burp release? Thanks! Chris

Chris, this option has been removed in Burp 2 as it didn't provide any real security. Passwords end up stored in project files in HTTP requests regardless of this setting. The whole project file should be encrypted.

We've added an "unencrypted passwords" warning to user and project save functions.
