In the latest UiPath (2016.2.6204), I see there are two GetCredential activities available for retrieving the credentials from Windows Credential Manager. The password retrieved using the activity UiPath.Credentials.Activities.GetCredential is returning the output as type String. This is unsafe as the password retrieved will be displayed as plain text if the developer accidentally uses the WriteLine or LogMessage to display the password variable. However I see the other activity UiPath.Core.Activities.GetRobotCredential is returning the output as type SecureString. But the UiPath.Core.Activities.GetRobotCredential can be used only with Orchestrator and cannot be used with individual back office robots.
Can you please change the output of UiPath.Credentials.Activities.GetCredential as well to type SecureString (or create a new activity). This will help in using this feature securely with individual back office robots (without Orchestrator). We really appreciate if you can provide a patch for this ASAP as our implementation is moving into production in next 3 weeks.
