I take that back. If I turn Android builds back on, close Standalone 
Settings, and re-open it, the password is gone. So, we can't protect 
Android mainstacks?

Android apps can be distributed through private web sites, and without 
any encryption they would be easier to hack. I understand that I can set 
the password manually, but it's much easier not to worry about it during 
development and still be assurred it will be set on a build.

If there's a reason we can't do that, okay. If there isn't a reason, 
I'll put in a request for it.
