SSH GUI alternative to Remmina?

I've been using either openSSH or Remmina for a while now to connect to remote machines. About 30 of them. I have the pw's saved elsewhere. As the # of servers increase I just wondered if there's a solution for SSH that saves the passwords of auto login once clicked... so I don't have to manually paste passwords. Of course the app should require root login to run or otherwise be protected to lower risks of password exposure.  My laptop's bios is passworded on boot anyway so security is not the main requirement.

The question isn't about security, hacking, etc. Only asking if there are alternatives that exists?

thx

Maybe you could switch to key based authentication and setup keychain to unlock keys with passphrase.
And bios password doesn't really count as security measure.

Yes I use keys for some and of course AWS ec2's but not interested in creating keys. Only if... "there are alternatives that exist?"

puTTY allows you to save passwords. When I last used it I set it up so I could just double click on the server name and it would authenticate with the saved credentials.

Re: SSH GUI alternative to Remmina?

I am curious as to why ssh keys are a no go for you?  Because after reading the first post, my first thought was to have some kind of a password manager for when you need them, but otherwise just use ssh keys for quick easy access.  What is it about an ssh key that you are not intersted in?
