Master password in Eclipse is a bit annoying. We can disable this feature completely. Firstly, you should exit your Eclipse applications. Then follow this steps:
1. Delete equinox security
rm -rf ~/.eclipse/org.eclipse.equinox.security
If you use Zend PHP Eclipse or some other, this step will solve the problem.
But, if you still get annoying Master password, then go to next steps :
2. Set text file you master password
For example, I use “nopass” as my master password. So i just echo “nopass” into eclipse master :
echo "nopass" > ~/.eclipse/master
3. Edit eclipse.ini
Add this into your eclipse.ini
Remember, you should change “/home/user” as your username. Also, you should copy this still on 2 lines format and not as single line.
Now you can free to start your Eclipse and not see this master password annoying pop-up again
