I am trying to determine where PRTG stores the saved credentials for the sensors. I have read the document on "How and where does PRTG store its data?", but was still unable to find this. I checked the configuration.dat file and it is not there. I am asking more for the purposes of security and for configuration backup.

backup configuration credentials

Hello,

Thank you very much for using PRTG. Monitoring Credentials are indeed saved in the configuration file of PRTG, although the passwords are encrypted.

best regards.
