Hide password ftp with the same user


Hi
I must connect to ftp to get some files occasionally. To do these I make a script.
The problem is that the user is generic and all of my work use these user in the local host, and the remote machine I must connect with my personal user so they can see my password in the script
There is some way to avoid these?
Thanks and sorry for my English

yes, there are several possibilities. First of all you can use different account for ftp. Another one can be to use sftp, scp, rsync or other kind of transfer.

sftp, scp and rsync can be scripted with the helps of keys.
