Login details to network services

Since X-plore allows connecting to various Interned services such as FTP, Google Drive, etc, the app may ask user for login details (username and password).
For services where this is possible, X-plore uses OAuth method of logging, where service’s own web page is used to get access token, and X-plore doesn’t keep login details at all.
For services where this is not possible (such as FTP), X-plore stores login details in its private configuration file (not accessible by other apps) in encrypted form, so that password is not readable even on rooted device.
