I installed BOINC on my Android One phone yesterday. Today, I went to see how it was doing. Four WUs crunching, credit shown for this device, all good. I hit the back button a couple times looking for something else, and there was the login screen, with my password in all its plain text glory. Is that what should be happening? Wouldn't it be better to wipe the password? Basically the issue is: Awk, bad security!
