Hide filename in password prompt dialogue box

I have a standard hidden volume that I auto-mount when I start Windows.

It pops up a password prompt dialogue box, I put in the password and off I go.

BUT it shows the full path and filename in the header of the dialogue box: is there any way to hide that?

I don't really care if anyone knows I'm using veracrypt (it's really just to keep nosy people from easily accessing private data), but I REALLY don't want someone to know where the file is: if they want to be malicious, they can just delete the file.

Thanks.

Probably I can add /mountoption title=<you title> to veracrypt command line.

Is it acceptable solution?

Thanks for the reply.

I don't currently use the command line to auto-mount it, but I'm sure I can figure that out. So yes, that would be really useful.

I've added the option to 1.20B2P2
https://sourceforge.net/projects/dc5/files/beta/

e.g:
"c:\Program Files\VeraCrypt\VeraCrypt.exe" /q /v c:\secret_path\test.vc:1 /l U /m title=Test

One more: You can use NTFS streams to camouflage data. (It does not protect from strong analysis but can be useful)
