Better usage of sensible user data for Alfred's Workflows

Alfred Workflows are a powerful way to enhance your productivity. You can code your own workflow and easily share it with others. Alfred provides you with such a sharing feature with just one click. Very easy, but also dangerous because all the files in your workflow folder will be included in that workflow package file. If your workflow includes sensible user data, such as remote server credentials, you should use another way of storing and accessing that data. In this blog post I show you one very secure and easy alternative.
