#15569 closed enhancement (fixed)

warning text in Preferences -> Connection Settings should be revised due to HTTPS being the default

Since JOSM is preset to access the default OSM API via HTTPS, the warning text should be revised. Currently it is quite a bit inaccurate. For most people storing the password the password on their computer should not be a problem.

Old: "Warning: The password is stored in plain text in the JOSM preferences file. Furthermore, it is transferred unencrypted in every request sent to the OSM server. Do not use a valuable password."

Suggestion for a new text: Note: The password is stored in plain text in the JOSM preferences file on your computer.
