Each time I run eth it requests my master password. I don't feel comforatble with permanently running a node with unlocked accounts.

eth at start-up

Is it possible to launch the C++ eth (or alethzero) client without unlocking the accounts?


Not at this time. However you can set a password for individual accounts, in which case the strength of the master password would matter less.

  • The master password does not unlock the accounts? What does it do?
