Hi kamalpreet82,

It is not necessary to delete the sessions.

Where are your passwords saved?

You can employ the power of editing the Default session to make this change to all of your existing and future sessions. Here are some links to tips and a video that provide more details about using the Default session to make mass changes to multiple sessions:
Since you would be making a change that affects many sessions, the recommendation is to export your config as a backup as a best practice. That can be done from the Tools menu (Export Settings), you would just specify an XML file where the info should be exported.

If your credentials were saved when the SSH Password dialog was shown (and Save Password checkbox was enabled), then they are found in the Password Properties... dialog. (Go to Connection / SSH2 category in Session Options/Default Session, choose Password in the Authentication grouping, then press the Properties... button.)

As always, it is generally not a security "best practice" to save passwords regardless of the application in use. If an individual or an organization chooses to save passwords in VanDyke Software client applications, passwords are encrypted (not merely obfuscated).
