Hey GAOTD-Fans :-)

i like to mention another program here...

Sounds unusual but i want to start with its cons first:

Its outdated and not supported anymore, even its website doesnt exist anymore...


to me its still a absolute unique and genious program !

the name is "Remlap KnowledgeBase V2.21" (Freeware ofcourse..)

if you google it you find enough pages still offering the download.

Now why do i mention it ?

Here comes the PROS.

Its a "everything taking" Database System. (Text, any Doc Format, any archive format or image..... basically any file you can think of)

It has its own integrated richtext editor, supporting image or whatever else integration.

It has its own hirarchical content management. (most likely workin like a explorer tree)

It stores it all in a single file.

The file gets saved STRONGLY ENCRYPTED !

In other words, thats what comes up in my mind when i read a sentence like

"Data Guardian is a secure database application... and so on."
'Citation end.

Students have used it to bring a complete reference work under one hood, to end up with a single file in the end...

Oh before i forget... It comes with a free shareable "browsing tool". (Basically the same as the Database tool with the edit functions taken off.)

Imagine you create a Freeware database containing all Documentation in a well sorted manner, all installer files and any additional information whatsoever. Add the "Browser" to it, burn it all on a CD and give it away to your friends... well thats only one of its endless usage possibilities...


PS: any mentioning of a TRUE alternative with the SAME functionality, but still supported would be highly appreciated...

There is a way to transfer this data from a browser to a Database.

In Internet Explorer, just right-click, and you have an option to transfer all data on your page to Excel.

Just because Twofish Is more more secure doesn't mean that Blowfish is insecure.

Blowfish is a very very hard algorithm to break. Brute forcing Blowfish at a 448bits key is totally infeasible. And I am totally unaware of any back doors.

The easiest way to keep critical information safe enough on your computer is to place such information in files with names not indicative of their purpose

(Why the heck am I providing this service for FREE? Madman!!)

Because you call yourself "KING OF THE FREEBIES"?

But if you ask yourself:
(Why the heck am I providing this service for FREE? Madman!!),
then it's time for you to say goodbuy and start your own website.
It seems that the only thing you do is LOL,by every GOTD offer.
If this is your main reason to visit,and it "seems to be",
then stay away,or else show a little bit more respect.

@Giovanni, I'm betting that either you don't have kids, or they aren't fans of Doctor Seuss. Unless I miss my guess, #10 was teasing you about the names of the encryption algorithms being so close to Dr. Seuss's book, "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" and wasn't asking about support for alternative encryption methods at all. Either way, I also give many thanks for your freebies that you list.

#27, I couldn't agree more. Most people who comment here every day are a**holes who don't have the ability and/or the will to write useful software themselves. I look at this site daily, and when I see something I don't want, I just leave. I don't waste my, and other people's, time proving that I have to learnt to criticise others' efforts (*not* an admirable skill).

Keep up the good work, GAOTD, and thanks, as always!

I do enjoy users who post about the software in a very harsh, almost violent way it will get TONS of "yes". Yet if a comment is positive, or trying to look on the brighter side it will get TOMS of "no". Seems to be MOST of the commenters who judge too harshly, should be judged themselves and step back from the computer and go...OUTSIDE. It's sad a company like Giveaway Of The Day tries to obtain a new software everyday, just to have the same "commenters" slam how ineffective the software is to that particular user and almost go so far as to slam Giveaway for posting such a "useless" software. I wish the yes/no system was removed completely from the site.

I for one appreciate Giveaway Of The Day for obtaining new software for us to enjoy. Software, that may be ineffective for my everyday uses, but that has some quality i haven't thought of and i go looking for an alternative with that quality.

Most never say this, Thank You Giveaway Of The Day for your tireless, consistent hard work by giving us the unique opportunity to sample software on a daily basis. Thank you!!!

#22, V, Google is your friend. Wikipedia has Schneier's quote with references. I don't have the mathematical skills nor do I keep up with such things, but Twofish (not Blowfish) with 256-bit keys is faster with fewer published attacks than AES, although it wasn't selected for the AES encryption algorithm.

#18 Happy Dae
Initially a database was just a single table, often referred to as a flatfile database (dBase II and dBase III), so it is not fair to claim that they are guilty of misleading information.
The problem with them is that they are incredibly wasteful of space, for example a group of people living in the same house could have their name and their address, the latter being repeated for each name! Today's database would have the name in one table with a relationship to another table which contained the address.

Either I'm not interpreting their product information correctly or nobody here has bothered to read it themselves before driving hard to the criticism hole:

First, this isn't a password manager but it can be used as such. According to their website, Ashraf is wrong and there IS browser integration (though I've not used it personally): "Aside from Data Guardian's easy to use Keychain integration* to autofill passwords on web sites...".

Second, it IS a database, a *flat-file* database, meaning that it has no relational capability. ... IF you need a relational database to maintain your Christmas list, you need to get a life.

Third, it seems the clown who is slandering blowfish is back again. Blowfish has NOT been "deprecated" and if Schneier has said that, it is news to Schneir's OWN website. You can read Schneier's ACTUAL comments about Blowfish, for yourself, on scheier.com


If you need a simple *database* to record lists of stuff, this is not a bad alternative; especially if you want to keep that stuff away from prying eyes.

#10 wiggumc1 good on you mate LOL

I did not install today's giveaway and do not comment on its abilities. I just wanted to remark that if anyone of you guys wish to use it only because it is free today, think again. Never a good idea to use an encryption software if you are not certain you will have the ability to get upgrades, support and compatibility for it, in the future.

As a secure database application with encription capabilities as well as password manager I use Clipperz.
It's free and you may store passwords and any other confidential data online or offline.

@10 Giovanni
wiggumc1 was making a joke referencing the Dr Seuss book One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. There's no such thing as OneFish and RedFish encryption.

Apparently Koingo Software guys don't know the difference between a database and a data table. This product is simply a multi-column table, not a database. Misleading advertising notwithstanding, the software is inadequate to any but the most basic purposes.

I think you might have missed wiggumc1's humor. I believe he was making a reference to the Dr. Suess classic: "One Fish....Two Fish....Red Fish....Blue Fish".

Hey dude, Sicurpass 4.0 Pro is amazingly FREE of charge...but why is BLOWFISH 448 BIT KEY not enough for you?

It's even used by the FBI...

LOL...no offense meant for you but, unless you work at NASA or PENTAGON headquarter, there's absolutely no point to snub that FREE app simply because it doesn't provide Redfish encryption (who cares?? LOL!!)!!

This softwares that protects our sensitive data should works whitout a password, storing our data with or whithout passwords on the software. They should use something on the computer to allow access to data, so if a hackers get your database they can't read if they are not at your computer. Make it simple.

It seems that a lot of people are missing the point.

This is basically a text file encrypter which can be used to store anything including passwords.

This is by no means a true database application with encryption capabilities. Though the broad meaning of database is met with this app, I wouldn't use it for a database.

CAUTION: INSECURE — Blowfish cipher has been deprecated for several years.

Bruce Schneier, Blowfish's creator, is quoted in 2007 as saying "At this point, though, I'm amazed it's still being used. If people ask, I recommend Twofish instead. [Source: Wikipedia]

Hi! First of all, this is not a password protection program; it is an encrypted database. I do realize that most of us only have ONE use for an encrypted database -- secure password storage!! Contact list and/or address book come in a distant 2nd place. According to their website, this program does sync with Safari's Keychain to aid in auto-fill. Anyway, this is a decent secure database program. Thank-You GOTD!! I use Scarabay Password Manager http://www.alnichas.info/

Sure, Sicurpass 4.0 Pro supports Twofish and Blowfish encryption, but what about OneFish and RedFish?

Thanks for all your alternatives to each giveaway!

The ability to insert pictures into the database record is what I wanted from the feature set. According to the description, Data Guardian can do this.

Just a word of caution, sadly as a result of experience.
When storing passwords in an encrypted proprietary system you must be confident that it will be supported in the future. This means it is best to use a system that has been around for a considerable time.

Today's offering is merely a method of producing an encrypted database and little else, plenty of freeware to do that, OpenOffice, LibreOffice.

Free Alternatives of Password Managers:

Stickypassword(Free & Pro)




These can store your passwords and even autofill passwords for your Browsers so that you need not type the passwords.

Of these stickypassword is my favourite and easy and best to use.
