After install set your API key and use a Master Password to encrypt it on disk:

PS C:\> Set-ShodanAPIKey -APIKey 238784665352425277288393 -MasterPassword (Read-Host -AsSecureString)

The key is now saved in a secure manner on disk and set as the key for use for all other commands. For loading a stored key after opening a new session just issue the command to read the key with you master password:

Read-ShodanAPIKey -MasterPassword (Read-Host -AsSecureString)
