Comment (by gnotaras):

 Thanks for this info.

 However, I noticed that the ticket has been closed. Cyberduck saves '''too
 much''' information by default and in some cases there is no way to
 deactivate such functionality.

 I'd suggest to take a second look at the following:

  * The option to save the password, which exists in the dialog that asks
 for the credentials, should be unchecked by default.
  * The username should not be auto-saved, unless the user has explicitly
 added it in the bookmark settings.
  * There should be an option (and command line switch whenever the cli
 interface is improved on the GUI app) to deactivate saving history.
  * You should consider disabling the "Use Keychain" option by default.

 Thanks in advance.
