Thanks for your reply. I believe I can trust it, but we need all the plugins to avoid passwords. A way that a plugin can't eve try to get your password. But I am not a dev so I don't know if that is possible. No warnings, no passphrase theft, just safe using all the great stuff from Nxt.

Hello farl4bit,

This plugin does not need password so we are fine here.

Regarding your request of not requiring passwords, this would be a BAD thing.
Indeed, some plugins may require your password to transfer funds/assets, etc.. on your behalf.
Now what would be nice is to have a mode where you allow all plugins but 'block' somehow the API calls requiring a password.
I am not even sure if that would help as today, they would ask for your password anyway.

I think the ONLY good options are:
1- get plugins from known and trusted sources.... I guess it won´t take long until ppl come up with bad plugin or provide modified copies of legit plugins
2- check the code yourself if you can...a quick look thru could already tell you a lot
3- share your discoveries/doubts, ask the authors and see how they react... the author of a malicious plugin will likely not answer...

Thanks for your reply.

I am just figuring out how the plugin can be used intensively by Average Joe, who don't knows code and you want to use plugins in his Nxt account. That's what will be important for adoption of the plugins. Even a reasonable experienced Nxter as myself has doubts about the safety of using plugins.

Well you are totally right.

It may be worth opening a 'plugin safety thread as it seems to be a NXT general concern.
On my side, as plugin developer, the only things I can do is be transparent, answer questions and provide details and in the specific case of that plugin, make sure I do NOT use any API calls requiring the account password.

There is only one type of plugins I really trust: the one I wrote :)

I trust you are doing a good job. Thanks for your replies and I hope some of the Nxt devs will found a more general solution for this problem.

Hello qq2536007339,
Could you please elaborate on "seems not working with NRS1.5.15"? What happends, what do you see, not see? Any error message?
I do have 1.5.15 on several machines and as far as I can see it works all fine.

If you could tell how you installed and what happens, I may be able to help you or investigate further.

I think the issue is that you need to rename the folder to dividends-scanner. Remove the nrs part as well as the version. This should be in the readme  btw.

Yea,you are right,sorry I didn't read readme first.Great plugin!!!

One more thing,I saw you use Bitmessage,do you think is possible that a NXT plugin can do the same work?

To your 'defense', it is mentioned in the middle of a sentence and not really highlighted :)
Glad you made it worked. That was an easy one :)

I am pretty busy atm I have a few ideas to improve this plugin.
The new version will be on nxtplugins: http://nxtplugins.com/index.php?details&id=2

Don´t forget to add the main addresses to you 'contacts' so that the plugin displays the NAME instead of the address. This is much nicer!

Regarding bitmessage... NXT already does offer the ability to send encrypted messages. I guess a gateway would be possible but I doubt the benefit.
I found the idea of bitmessage great but in practice, this is not soo cool due to the amount of processing required. I could not make it work (I mean in daily life...) on my phone for instance.

A new version (0.4.0.1) is now available from here: http://nxtplugins.com/index.php?details&id=2
The new version fixes and issue introduced by the deprecation of an NXT API call.
The people who bought the plugin already get the update for free, don´t miss it!
