Notes about Wordpress Passwords

Pine.blog doesn't store your Wordpress password. A keen reader might notice that they weren't asked for it when they tried to link their account to their Wordpress site.

This is because Pine.blog asks for your password once you attempt to post to your site and then stores an encrypted version of the password in your browser's local storage, or in the secure keychain in your iOS device. The tokens expire 30-days after they're made, so if 30 days passes or if your device cache is cleared (i.e. by clearing you browser history) then you'll be asked for your Wordpress password again.

Pine.blog does all this because, frankly, I don't want to be responsible for losing your password. If something were to happen I couldn't guarantee that an attacker couldn't reverse engineer your Wordpress password. Storing the password with you means that even if Pine.blog got hacked, your password would be safe.
