A daemon property can be encrypted by clicking on the encrypt icon (lock icon), which opens the window, see figure below. It can be activated by checking the "encrypt" box. The property can also be viewed and modified in plain text and decrypted again if required. With "Confirm" this input is confirmed.

If a daemon property is encrypted, the encrypt icon is displayed as an open lock icon, see the following figure, last table row, 4th column.
