Upon creating a new master password for a password provider, a prompt is
shown asking me if I wish to set password recovery. Since I am using my
own password provider and I don't wish that users will have any
interaction with the defined master password, I want to disable this
I have added the following hint to the provider definition (in the
<hint value="AutomaticPasswordGeneration"/>
and I am using "IProviderHints.PROMPT_USER = false" when opening a secure
None of this work (prompt is shown anyway), is there a way not to show the
prompt when using the password provider for the first time?

It's been a while since this thread was started, so you probably moved on long ago. But I just had to figure out how to solve exactly the same problem. I thought I'd post my solution, in case it might be helpful to anybody else.

This isn't exposed as API, so I had to use a sort of backdoor tactic through internal packages (SecurePreferencesWrapper and SecurePreferencesContainer). I think it should be externalized, though, and hopefully it will be in the future.

ISecurePreferences basePrefs =, null);
SecurePreferencesContainer prefsContainer = ((SecurePreferencesWrapper) basePrefs).getContainer();
prefsContainer.setOption(IProviderHints.PROMPT_USER, new Boolean(false));
