  • enabling remote connection - is password encrypted ?

    Hello

    Let's say I connect to a remote database with a "normal" connection (not ssh or ssl) using IP-address, port 3306, username and password.
    I understand the data transferred is not being encrypted. But when enabling the connection, will the password being sent encrypted over the Internet ?
    Do I have to be careful f.e. in an public WLAN, because it is easy for someone to monitor the data traffic and to read the password ?

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi dandelion,

    Yes, the password will be encrypted by the MySQL api automatically.
