LogMeIn - where does it save the login credentials

With LogMeIn, it gives you the checkbox opportunity to remember login usernam / passwords for specific machines on the machine you are at now (go to a public machine or any other machine and those credentials are not available.  So they aren't stored on the logmein server.

anyone know where they are stored?  I wound up wiping them out and have to re-enter about 2 dozen machines.  Love to be able to be sure to back it up.  Cookie?  Something else?

thanks!

Take a look at the Security page on the LogMeIn web site:
https://secure.logmein.com/US/products/ignition/iphone/security.aspx

They're stored in the registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\LogMeIn Ignition ; however they are encrypted with a key based on the account of the currently logged in user of the PC, which means you won't be able to just export/import the key.

Basically, it's specifically designed to prevent you from doing what you want to do (to prevent someone with access to your registry from being able to used the saved credentials elsewhere).

Depending on the browser, it might either be in a cookie, or Protected Storage.....

Youre talking about the main Logmein.com site, where you log into the account?

Pretty sure that XP Stores passwords in this key. From IE6 to 7, I believe password storage methods were changed....

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IntelliForms

Protected Storage PassView v1.63

Sorry, I should have mentioned - I am using logmein free and the central comtrol panel, not ignition

yeah, I figured there's  security.  I think I had IE reset all it's setttings and logmein things got trashed, so I want to see if there's a way to prevent that.  back it up and then restore it under the same user?

This page may have what you're looking for:
https://secure.logmein.com/US/products/central/security.aspx

The saved credentials appear to be stored on their system in an encrypted form.  It doesn't state where any of the components are stored on your PC; if you said it got removed by resetting Internet Explorer settings, it was most likely stored in a cookie.

NP, I use free as well.... But I am on the right path, in that it is the MAIN LOGIN page you are referring to?

no not the main login. when you click on a computer from your list, it asks for a username and password (if it's part of a domain, otherwise just password), and you can enter thatn and check a box 'remember these credentials' or something similar.  that's what I want to find where it's saving it.
