It's not a bug. I think it's intended to use the generate password feature to generate a unique password for each time.

@lasse: Maybe you should change "Don't save password" to something like "Settings do not save remote connection password (Developer mode)"

This way the question title would be a bit more unambiguous, since there are tons of password, you can save on your jolla phone.

Right, I did that.

From what I can see, this question is a virtual duplicate of; https://together.jolla.com/question/4622/disabling-and-enabling-remote-connection-results-in-password-shown-on-the-device-to-stop-working/

If it is considered to be the same/similar question, please close it and add your comments/votes there.

If not, then take a look at this HOW TO on the password aspect of developer mode/root access;

One time password, ok. I didn't know, not a bad thing really.

You can set the password manually too. It will remain set until you change it again.

If you disable remote connection, the password will be reseted when you turn the remote connection on again.

I have similar problem. I can set and save a password, which then works until the phone is powered off and restarted. After a restart the previously saved password is forgotten and a replaced with a new randomly generated.

I do not see this as a safety feature, it is most definitely a bug.
