Password Storage

Your passwords are stored *ONLY* on your machine in local extension storage. Before storing it, a random salt from a salt table of 1000 entries is added to it. This salted password is then converted to sha1sum and stored. Salt table is unique per user. Appu does not send your password out of your machine in any form.
