Accepted answer

to disable the master password prompt you have to specifiy a file containing the password with -eclipse.password, see eclipse sdk help and bug 241223.

the complete procedure is as follows (this is on linux, on windows it should work as well if you change the paths):

  1. exit eclipse
  2. delete the directory ~/.eclipse/org.eclipse.equinox.security
  3. create a text file containing your master password, e.g. echo "secret" > ~/.eclipse/master
  4. add to the very top of eclipse.ini, found in the eclipse program directory (as two lines, don't combine into one)

    -eclipse.password
    /home/user/.eclipse/master
    
  5. start eclipse again.

on ubuntu 11.10 with eclipse indigo installed the folder org.eclipse.equinox.security is hidden in the /root/.eclipse folder. do a

sudo su
cd /root/.eclipse
mv org.eclipse.equinox.security org.eclipse.equinox.security.backup

then (re)start eclipse and the password will be gone.

in windows 7 enerprise 64 bits + java 8 in eclipse go to :

preferences
--> general
    -> security
        -> secure storage. 
            in master password providers unckeck windows integration (64 bits)

then go to general -- network connections -- proxy and edit your proxy settings. a wizard appear to create secure storage

you can now just delete it, assuming you don't need it for anything. go to window > preferences > general > security > secure storage and then click on the 'contents' tab. if you click the delete button and then restart eclipse, you will no longer see the pop-up.

from what i understand, secure storage is mostly used with repositories like git and svn. in my case, i don't need it for my home computer. i use git at work, but even so, i have never seen the secure storage pop up before.

while opening the eclipse or importing the project, you might get sometimes error called salt must be 8 bytes long. this is because of conflicts between java and os key store.

either of following are the solutions of this problem.

► solution 1: remove file <userhome>.eclipse\org.eclipse.equinox.security\secure_ storage from your system. after that please restart machine and try to use eclipse***.

► solution 2: uncheck the windows integration (64 bit) and ui prompt from password tab of windows -> preferences -> general -> security -> secure storage. after that please restart machine and try to use eclipse.

► solution 3: delete [default secure storage] from contents tab of windows -> preferences -> general -> security -> secure storage. after that please restart machine and try to use eclipse.

here's my solution in nano.2 on windows, and it's nice and easy and seems to be working:

  • window -> preferences -> general -> security -> security storage
  • password tab: in the master password providers section, uncheck windows integration and ui prompt

i also tried deleting the [default secure storage] in the contents tab like some other answers suggested, but this is not needed and it gets recreated upon restart anyways.

  1. windows->preferences->then type "secure storage"
  2. in the contents tab, select [default secure storage].
  3. click delete.
  4. let eclipse restart.
