someone said as before sticky password rocks

but it looks like a clone of the freeware kee pass

i used kee pass and moved to sticky password becouse of the browser intergration.

. . . be creative with your rule creation. It will be the one you have to use from here on in if it is to work for you. Mine has worked for me for 20 + years without the loss of a single password.

@41: Good idea, but there's a bit of room for improvement. I remember passwords based on a 50 character string. It's randomly generated, containing letters and numbers. It's split up in groups of five. First, I remembered the 50 character string, then all I needed to do for each site was remember four numbers. The first two defined which set of characters I would use from the string, the third defined if I should have caps lock on or off, and the 4th defined if I should hold shift or not (useful to use special characters without having to remember anything else). Modify the rule a bit and you should have nearly uncrackable passwords if you can use 20 or more characters per password and have a different one for every site and service. You can generate some random strings from here, www.random.org . It's really not that hard to memorize 50 characters. Just take a little at a time and keep typing it somewhere once every ten minutes and you should get it within three days.

However, if you're convinced you can't remember passwords, just get KeePass. It's free and open source, so you can tell it isn't putting your security at risk somehow. As I said yesterday, I honestly wonder if any software developers check http://sourceforge.net/ [i]before[/i] trying to market their products.

Ruyou GOTD for all the free software I have downloaded. Now to my comment:

I am always amused by all the work and software development dedicated to storing passwords. If you are as old as I am and involved with PCs since the early years, you probably already know what comes next.

Why bother with all this simply to remember countless passwords? Make up a password rule that works with the site, program or filename you are protecting, and then use the rule to create unique passwords for each situation. For example: rule =s
MaryHadabig[1st,3rd and last letter of site, program or filename]+ $.

example 1: password protected Excel file named password.exe. Using the sample rule, the password for this file becomes:

example 2: password for your online bank account at Eighth National Bank becomes:

Make up your own rule, use the same username or login name for all and you will never forget any password, without having to run any password storing software. You also won't have to worry about remembering the password to the password software or that the software will become corrupted in some fashion.

While this method may seem complicated at first, once you get the hang of the personal (and very secret) rule you devised you can whip through your computing day without ever having to resort to a password keeper.

Good luck and be creative with your rule creation. It will be the one you have to use from here on in if it is to work for you. Mine has worked for me for 20 + years without the loss of a single password.

I now use Roboforms and lastpass, after many trials, I find both to be great programs. For those that can't afford Roboforms, LastPass is almost a great. I didn't install today because I've done so much testing and I have two great apps to pick from.

Checkout lastpass for free and
Roboforms pay for program, you won't go wrong with either.

Thanks GOTD and users, too bad Roboforms Pro hasn't been on this site, I think a lot of the users would be amazed.

Not enough features to bother with if you are using Lastpass. A word... Never, ever,never,ever,ever trust a password manager not fail and lose your passwords. A password manager is a convenience and should be safe.
But always keep a list of your passwords ... remember I warned you :)

My favorite: Mitto (http://mitto.com).

It's a safe and easy to use online password manager. They are certified by McAfee and TRUSTe, and it's free! I use it from all of my computers (work, home, laptop, smartphone) and they even integrate an extra layer of security by sending you SMS messages to your cell phone when you log in from unrecognized computers, just like my bank.

#17,#18 On screen keyboards send keyboard events that any software keylogger can log.

Clipboard logging can capture passwords copied to the clipboard.

A screen logger can capture information entered in forms.

A browser's onSubmit event can be used to record form data before being sent over the internet and bypass https encryption.

Todays offering doesn't use the keyboard or clipboard and has it's own encryption. It may not be the best but it's better than an on screen keyboard or a “secret” notepad file . (A screen logger is still a concern untill they fix the bug)

#18, Borg Drone, while your point that any password manager is better than none is correct, I still don't agree that online password managers are safe. I assume you're talking about LastPass. You can read their Technology page. To the average user, it might sound great. But pay attention to what they actually say. Is it an open-source product? No. Do they have any independent verification of their security? No. You're taking their word for it that their product does what it says and that they're security experts. Read the last sentence. Who decides whether their product is safe and protects your privacy? They do. Now, let's talk about what they say. If you use their add-ons, you're using software which sends your passwords out over the Internet. You're taking their word that the passwords are securely encrypted and that there's no possibility that anyone could have altered the code to send out your master password. Again, just to be clear, the add-on has access to your password database, your master password, and the Internet. If you don't use add-ons, it gets worse. In that case, your browser has access to your master password and uses JavaScript for password encryption and decryption. You're trusting that your browser is secure (we all know just how secure browsers are, no matter which one you use) and that they've thought of all the possible cross-site scripting, etc., attacks like they claim to test for. Yeah, just like all the webmail, social networking, e-commerce, etc., sites tell us how their security is unbreakable, yet they continually show up in the news for security breaches.

Contrast that with an offline password manager, like Sticky Password. It's a proprietary product, so we also don't know just how secure it is. Let's say they screwed-up database security. For that to be an issue, someone would have to have physical access to your computer or another copy of the database, or they would have had to have hacked your computer to where they could retrieve local files from it. If you're using IE8 in Protected Mode on Vista or higher, the browser doesn't have direct access to either the password database or the master password. Sticky Password itself doesn't access the Internet (I could block it, but my security software would prompt me if it asked for Internet access, and the firewall application settings for Sticky Password indicate that it has never attempted Internet access). So, even if there was a problem with Sticky Password's database security, it's highly unlikely that a remote user could gain access (that's what your security software is for). All of the other security features which I mentioned in comment #6 would remain in effect.

I have to put in my vote for RoboForm2Go. I have been using this passkeeper for years now and wouldn't give it up for anything. While there is the version that you can install on your PC, that is limited to that single computer; with Robo2Go, you keep it on a USB key. It has almost anything you could want;
* auto installation upon USB insertion
* many, many, many individual site passwords
* pick a website and it will auto fill URL and surf there
* auto fills site password and submits it (GREAT for online email!!)
* multiple site passwords/answers possible for multi-level log ins
* manages multiple financial aspects, including multiple credit cards
* can fill in financial information with one click and submit
* manages your "identity" and can auto fill forms when requested
* manages "safenotes" for those things that are not passwords
* random password generator on demand, using your parameters
* can set custom fields not on regular list (a bit tricky)
* can import your phone/address list
* auto log out function (VERY handy)
* super-easy encrypted backup on demand
* will work on any PC running IE or Firefox
* is totally portable
* completely removes all traces it was there when you remove USB

Sorry, I didn't want this to be a referendum on RoboForm2Go, but in my experience there simply isn't anything more user-friendly, portable and as secure as you can get.

I use mine many times a day and it saves me HUGE amounts of time. It has everything to recommend it.

Lack of support for a smartphone is a problem. It's nice to be able to access password protected sites from the BlackBerry, for example, and KeePass offers that support. I think that any serious password vault tool should have cross-platform support.

I have used Roboform for several years and its worth its weight in gold! Now it has online feature so no install is required or you could install and sync from online site to any other computers. The online feature is great when travelling so you could access the passwords from any public pc and leave no trace when leaving :)

One word: Lastpass.

I see a lot of people mentioning Roboform in these comments. Used it for years, it's a great product, but it's gotten pretty long in the tooth. And if you use several computers online (two desktops at home, a laptop, netbook, then the work PCs, mobile phone (blackberry), iPod Touch, etc) it can get awfully expensive buying all those licenses.

Lastpass has more advanced features and better security than RF, native syncing, built-in web access, better browser integration and many native mobile apps.

The Chicago Tribune published an article last week about password managers here. Highly recommend taking a minute or two to read:

Heya :) Thank you to all software designers and GOTD for offering these programs for us to use/review ^_^

I use LastPass, though, which I really love...I would hesitate having a program that isn't as easy to use or browser integrable however, because at the very least, it creates a users laziness tbh. Besides the other comments given, I'd truly suggest making a plug-in..Firefox provides the engine for that, not sure about IE as I don't use it. I give a lot of credit to any software company who comes here however, as while they are finding out the real reviews, I'm sure it can be sorta tough to read them too sometimes. I can't comment a yay or nay, I am afraid, as I don't like having more of 1 of the same software, and I prefer the program I do currently use. But please keep up the work, maybe use some of the suggestions here to compare this program to those mentioned and see what/could be added/changed. I'd like to see the 're-creation' of it sometime ^_^

There are two features that RoboForm has that I really like, and after visiting this product's home page, found this one doesn't seem to do. One is the ability to save all password info in a table on an html page. You can save the file to a USB thumb drive, and you also print it off and store the USB drive and hardcopy in secure locations. If your hard drive crashes and you don't have any backups (or can't get the Windows Server restore to work), your passwords aren't lost forever.

The other feature is a one-click form fill-in for web page logins. This software makes you drag and drop, whereas RoboForm has a window layer with "Fill forms" and "Fill and Submit" buttons. Once users get used to one-click convenience, there's no reason for them to go back to typing or drag and drop.

For those not wanting to trust their data to a program with 24-hour activation, maybe you can consider this "try before you buy" shareware with all the features unlocked and testable. If you like the program and want to use it, you can alleviate your worries about reinstalling by paying the relatively inexpensive price to purchase your own copy with license.

I'll close by adding my thanks to GAOTD, for letting us try non-crippled software programs every day.

@Jonas: Comment#2
You've got to be kidding! Ashraf(comment#1) is right and his exquisite review of Abylon Keysafe makes it a so-so password manager program, meaning it will be something like a "Park at your own risk" type of software.

Folks, if it is necessary for you to have a password bank, its only wise to have both a soft and a hard copy of it locked in an actual safe box. This goes not just for the giveaway today but for any password manager out there.

I use Roboform and have for a few years, thanks GAOTD but Ill pass on this one.

Reply   |   Comment by Ray  –  14 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-12)

first, many thanks for your feedback.

The "abylon KEYSAFE" is a simple tool, which surely has not all functionalities of similar software products. Nevertheless, I would like the following functions, which have been mentioned here, or I think are interessting:

- Password Scrambler against key loggers.
- Use of smart cards, USB sticks, CDs, RFID cards or certificates as an access key. In this case an additional entering of a password is possible, but not necessary.
- Only the displayed data is decrypted. All other data will remain encrypted.
- The data can be drag with the mouse from the "Keysafe" to needed fields.
- Under settings you can select the time after the "Keysafe will be automatically closed.
- Disabling the "minimal view" on the right mouse button of the list.

Finally, excuse me for the partially bad English. Suggestions for improvement are always welcome.

I haven't tried this application, however, for those interested, you may find PasswordSafe a good choice. Can be used on an USB Stick allowing you to take your passwords with you anywhere. Auto locks the database with your passwords. Access to the database only with the correct password. Easy usage for applications as well as websites, simply enter the information, then, when needed, double click the saved password (after entering your master password), and it auto-fills in the application/webform login for you.

And, its free.

I also have well over 100 passwords to keep track of, and I use RoboForm; both Pro & ToGo. I keep them synched with Good Sync. I have used both for several years, through several different computers, and with the ToGo version, which I keep on my U3 thumbdrive (which has its own password protection), I have instant access to my passwords anywhere I travel in the world.

Sorry GAOTD, I'll pass on this one. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Robo-Form baby. They have the best program out there and I have been using them since day one. #11 & #12, one of the best parts of RoboForm is Robo2go. You simply download your passwords onto a flash drive or other portable drive, and you can take them with you wherever you go, including back into your own computer if the need arises. But they also maintain your info on their server as well.

I'm always intrigued by the naming conventions of software. Password manager for example. I don't personally need a password manager, I would like a username manager though. My password is a mixture of my initials, my old army number and my first cats name. The problem I have is when I enter a username registration detail for a given site, I often find that it is used already. I don't want to use AndyPandy88579 for one site and Andy_Pandy99912 for another because i'll never remember them.

This software is good but I prefer Lastpass because it's free, it's online so you can access it from any net connected PC and it's secure.

Have a look at this link.

It's a short video of me using lastpass, first I run Ccleaner to erase all surfing details, then I fire up lastpass which starts Firefox, I log in and then can access websites where I've had to register under different usernames, just for info, when I click the box under my login on lastpass that is only for lastpass to remember my email address, not password.

Hope this helps someone.

I have close to 100 passwords to keep track of, and no way would I want to carry around a piece of paper with all of them written on it! I also understand the risk of using a password manager that all of a sudden you have no access to. Therefore, I use 3 password manager programs and keep them all synced (yeah, it's a bit of work, but it's worth it). The chances of losing access to all three is rather remote.
As for this program, it lacks too many features to really be much more than what you'd get keeping a "secret" notepad file somewhere on your computer! The reasons have already been pointed out by others.
I use RoboForm, Password Depot, and Keepass (the free one, not to be confused with Keypass, which is not free).

#12, There are online password managers like lastpass which are safer than traditional "write them down and keep them on your person.". When you keep them you still can lose them or even if you place them in your home someone can steal them. With these online password managers all your passwords are encrypted with 256 bit encryption on your pc and after that sent to their database. There is also copy on your PC. So all you need to remember is one password to export all your passwords. Also, even if their server is hacked still they can not do anything with encrypted passwords. Same is true for internal sabotage from an employee, he simply can not have any use of encrypted data, because private key is only on your PC.
It is much bigger risk to carry around all your passwords and type them every time because of key loggers, etc. As for master password it can not be key logged because you have option to use on screen keyboard, and also to only unlock the software if your special formated USB stick is in place.
So basically online password managers are MUCH safer than "traditional" method (I would call it obsolete method).

Would it be better to type a Word document that contained all your passwords and sign in names.

Then password protect the file with 128 bit encryption.

Then you would only need to remember one password.

You could also store the file only on a thumb drive so it would not be on your computer if it got stolen.

these types of programs always amuse me, a passworded program used to hold passwords, what happens if you forget your own password? as we all know it happens, I prefer some of the old fashion ways, write them down somewhere, use notepad and store it on a jump drive, or burn it to a CD what ever, but making a plain old text back up will always save you a LOT of head aches in the future.

*** Smooth download/installation/activation on Vista Home Premium x64 SP2 system.

*** Simple, clean, intuitive, easy-to-understand, easy-to-navigate GUI.

*** Uses Blowfish and AES encryption technology.

*** Offers three different password management methods, which include: Password-based key management, Smart-card or memory-based (USB-stick/CD) key management, Smart-card or memory-based (USB-stick/CD) with password key management - depending on user's needs.

*** Program does not allow user to choose a "weak password". For example, when I chose a password that was of 70% quality (based on program's security criteria) it would not let me choose/keep it as such. Instead, I had to keep selecting a progressively more secure password (until it was at a minimum of 80% quality acceptability) before the program would let me keep/maintain it as such.

*** Allows user to create backup of its password information.

*** Allows user to print individual password entries.

*** Contains password generator to create passwords if user prefers this method.

*** Supports three languages (English, German, Spanish)

*** View option in Menu allows for program's main screen to be viewed in: Transparent, Dialogue always on top, and Minimal modes.


*** Be very careful about choosing the "minimal view" mode for the program's main screen. When I naively did this, I was unable to easily restore the "non-minimal view" mode again, and (of course) the Help Menu also was not visible, so I was unable to figure out how to restore the non-minmal mode.

*** When I uninstalled and re-installed the entire program to try to undo the problem with the "minimal view" mode versus the "non-minimal view" mode, the program gave me an error message saying that it could not find my originally-generated "encrypted-password-file," so I ended up having to create a completely new "encrypted password file." The problem was eventually resolved, but only after much headache and hassle. This, however, may be a good thing, as it probably speaks to (and supports) the strength and security capabilities of this software program - just be careful that you don't lock yourself out, or else you won't be able to access your files at all in the future.....just a word of caution...

SUMMARY: - Despite the relatively-minor hassles, because the program does appear to be strong with respect to its password security capabilities - I give this a two-thumbs-up. Thanks much, GOTD and Abylonsoft, for this terrific program.

Password Managers are definitely useful, despite the fact that most modern Browsers save your passwords whenever you log into a site: what do you do when you want to remember, say, the Password of a Password-protected PDF!?? Plenty of other reasons why a Password Manager is a MUST HAVE on your Hard Disk!

At http://www.welloiledpc.com/password.htm, we have discussed Password managers and reviewed Seven of the best - some shareware, some freeware (adware too, if you prefer that term!) Our own favorite is the freeware Password Corral, from Cygnus Productions!

#10, chiipster, you're right that most password managers have an optional inactivity time limit (although your screen saver should be set to go back to your password-protected Windows user logon screen). I have Sticky Password set to unlock/lock based on whether my USB flash drive is plugged-in, and I leave it attached to my keychain, so if I leave the computer, it's locked.

#11, Henkie, just keep a copy of KEYSAFE's 30-day trial version. With Sticky Password, I not only have backups and a portable version, but it will import and export the passwords. Sticky Password can check the portable version to see if it needs updating, and will tell you how much additional space is required.

#11: that is the very reason I never use password managers. If you lose the computer/hard drive/software or anything else that prevents you accessing your password manager software, you are screwed. For the same reason plus the security reasons mention already I would never in this life or the next use an Online password manager

If, like me, you cannot remember passwords, use the good old traditional tried and tested method - write them down and keep them on your person.

I'll pass on this one but thanks anyway GOTD, keep 'em coming

And what, if something happens and you will be forced to install it again? Not paid for, no reïnstall possible because the date is wrong, and there your passwords go into the drain.

Using a password database is very useful, but it has to be freeware just for safety reasons. The last thing you want to happen, is not having access to your passwords any longer.

So I vote negative about this.

This program never times out if it is left open. I could be using it, forget that it was still running, leave for lunch, come back later, with all my data having been compromised. It should have an option for closing after time has passed, or sending an alert. No matter how secure the encryption, it shoud also take into account, the human factor, of how people actually use it.

I will pass on this as I use Roboform and have done for many years. Very easy to use, loads of features and has never gone wrong. I have used it on at least five computers and have been able to transfer all of my password and login details to each easily. I have the paid for version but used the free version for quite a while. I haven't seen any of these other password/key type programmes to come close to the useability I have taken for granted.

Another password manager which appears to miss half of what password management is all about. Encryption algorithms and security certificates are only part of password management. To the people who say, "You can't comment on the offered software until you try it", while in most cases that's true, it isn't always. I looked around the website, which is in need of better translation and spell-checking. The online Help isn't available, and I did try a number of other possible URL's, in case the link has a simple URL typo.

I'll tell you why I stick with and recommend a previous giveaway, Sticky Password. It directly integrates into several popular browsers with minimal intrusion. It fills out logins and other password fields automatically, saving time, and more importantly, providing protection from keyloggers, clipboard monitors, screen capture, shoulder-surfing, and phishing attacks. It has moderately sophisticated realtime security scanners which check executables, keyboard and clipboard monitoring, etc., although I don't use that feature because there's some conflict with my security software's realtime scanners. It can generate portable versions and backup the password files. It will work with some applications (besides browsers) which require passwords or registration keys. It has a virtual (on-screen) keyboard which can be used with most applications to thwart keyloggers. It can also be used to launch websites/URL's or applications via a quick search box, although I don't use that feature.

There's no way that I would ever use an online password manager. You're trusting the site and applications to be secure and not hacked either externally or via internal sabotage from an employee. As for proprietary software like Sticky Password, your security software monitors its activities.

* Can create backup of your passwords.
* Has an optional token authentication system.

The Bad
* No real browser integration.
* Cumbersome/nonexistent way to create multiple "keysafe"/profile.
* Horrible English...
* No password hint or ability to recover password if you forget password.
* Bug when creating a "keyfile" and turning password astricks off.
* You must manually rename every new entry after you create it.
