Cookie doesn't ask for your password at all, at least not directly. It has some receipt checking code, which checks if your App Store receipt is valid. This may prompt the OS to ask you to login to your account?
There is no additional cost to enable Safari. It is just a matter of installing the optional scripts, which if you are upgrading from an earlier version - you should already have installed.
For ppl have have never used Cookie, and are purchasing it for the first time (Mac App Store Only) they will need to enable Safari from the Advanced tab in Preferences - which has a link to the optional script download.
The Mac App Store version, still functions exactly the same as the version from my store... It is just more of a hassle to get up and running because of Mac App Store limitations.
