The password function protects the script of your stack files so that they
are scrambled when viewed in a text editor or if they are opened in in the
LC IDE a password is required before you are able to view or edit the stack

I just tried using the Standalone Application Settings option of "Encrypt
with password" and in Indy 9.0.2 this only works if you the option to "Move
substacks into individual stack files" is ticked.

A fail-safe way is  using the code below adjusted for your stack name and
password, in the message box to protect your stacks.

set the password of stack "myStack" to "myPassword"

and save

if you need to remove the password you can use

set the password of stack "myStack" to empty

and save
