Hello,

Thank you for your KB - Post. You are correct, this would be shown to users who have access to the host machines running a PRTG Probe. Which is why we strongly recommend, and actually define, the host machine of any PRTG Installation (full or "only" Remote Probe), needs to have a very tight security. Only selected admins should have access to such a machine. So persons, who will then know such credentials anyway.
Let me repeat this important bit, a PRTG Host machine needs to be secure and only accessible for selected trustworthy admins.

best regards.
