Finally got to this. The password is saved in the standalone custom 
property set, but when testing on a trial standalone it isn't actually 
being used. So the answer is "no, you can't set a password on a mobile 
app via the standalone builder."

After thinking about this, I realized that since none of the three major 
app stores will accept an encrypted app, that's why it's disabled.
