This is way better than password utility I am using. It allows for easy organization and the additional note area is a big plus, especially with many sites adding security questions. I like keeping all the information together. I do not want to open an office document and I do not want to use roboform as it messed up my computer (years ago but I am still mad about it). I missed Sticky Passwords and was going to try some free applications that were mentioned here. I always printout a hard copy of my passwords and backup to another drive. I like the nice options this program has to offer - thanks much!

#15 has the best idea, mostly because it is the simplest. I also use a Rolodex for my websites, login screen names, and passwords. If one uses a password manager, it is a wise choice to back up that information elsewhere should you have loss of data on your hard drive. I would rather have my eggs in a basket that I can always reach. Nice toy to play with GOTD, thanks.

I really like Stickypassword ( http://www.stickypassword.com), which has been given away before on Give away of the day.

I like that it puts all the passwords in one file. That way I can have easily separate my work passwords from my home passwords, two separate databases. (Roboform make one file for each account.)

Also with Stickypassword the portable version is included in the one license. (Roboform requires an additional cost for the portable version.)

I'm always a little leary of using any sort of encryption program that I will be forced to buy if I lose or reformat my hard drive, and even though I keep back-ups of the data.

I've used Roboform, but I don't care much for it. I use Vortex which is free, straightforward and will also create a password in one of 3 levels of difficulty.

Vortex:

But don't ever use your browser to save important passwords. There are tools that make it VERY easy to retrieve saved passwords in IE. At least in Firefox they make it obvious that saved passwords are not secure.

Haven't found a password program I can TRUST, certainly not a giveaway from an unknown company. Then again using 3x5 cards are as foolish as post it notes inside desk drawers. The premise behind passwords is secrecy, something most people still don't comprehend. Convenience costs. Since computers are not famous for keeping secrets against a neverending hacker onslaught, the idea of putting all passwords in one hopper, even if encrypted, makes me nervous. I try to thwart hackers while not making life too complicated. I maintain individual, encrypted text files for each password behind a biometric barrier and/or a sandbox. I change passwords fairly regularly, and only after running a full security scan including rootkit scan of the hard drive. For financial sites, I append characters to each password before or after pasting them into a field. Hopefully anti-keylogging tactics thwart them from snagging all my steps. This might sound like overkill, but it becomes second nature pretty quickly. Those who balk haven't been listening. Here's a helpful site that can add a little randomness to the process - - https://www.grc.com/passwords.htm

Keepass will do.If you are patient enough or just a geek you can configure it via plugins to make it auto launch and auto fill just like roboform.
As for saving if you can spend time you can save the pswd file in many formats such as csv or xml and in case it is corrupted you can always resort to these backups or use it for another prog,in case you switch to robo or if any other brilliant open source pswd manager comes out from the open community.

Well, I tried a password manager once, they're annoying. I use a key logger called "Revealer." It just records the keys pressed..... even RIGHT NOW.... creepy. Anyway, I used it just this morning for a site I forgot my pass! It really works, free, low mem usage.

To #24, I agree with #45.
The last time I used Word I could Password Protect the document, and that protected the file from being read by Word. BUT a simple text viewer could read the file and display MULTIPLE copies of a screen dump showing the contents of the document as they appeared on the screen when the document was originally created - so if you have 100 passwords on 100 lines, the bottom 50 are probably of screen and not visible, but the top 50 may well be visible to anyone with Notepad.exe

#24 your passwords are not protected in Word. Password Managers encrypt the password files so no one can read them if some one where to get a hold of it.
Another vote for KeePass. It is great and has a portable version for usb drives as well.
Thanks for the comments comparing this to other freeware out there. There is no reason to bother downloading this one as it seems I have something better already.

#41 bigun:

I wish to explain to software authors that put their software up for download on GOTD that if they are offering software that requires a user’s trust - that software needs to be available in a form that it can be reinstalled.

But the software authors whose work appears on GOTD for the purposes of a test drive -- for a short or long period -- do make the darn stuff "available in a form that can be re-installed".



It's called the "paid for version".


Is it the weather that's having an effect on some of the posts on this thread or wot. . ?

#29 I felt "ripped-off" with the RoboForm edition that I downloaded from GOTD for the same reasons. After the demo period was over, the damn thing would pop-up every time I entered a site to tell me that the site was over the limit and that I needed to purchase the full edition. Bad, bad, bad form. Even if I have had a paid edition I don't want something popping up every time I go to a website. 90% of the time when I go to a website I do not want to register my presence. If I want pop-ups I will turn off "Ad Muncher".

I like the program being offered today but as in the case of all programs of this type I don't want to trust data to a program that I will have to buy to recover it in the event of a crash. When I download a program like I did today, the efforts of downloading become a waste of time if I don't enter data to try it out. Then I have wasted time if I decide not to purchase the program and have to enter the data elsewhere. If I depend on a program, I want to be able to reinstall it without paying additional money. I might be able to recover a lost program with some of my expensive purchased recovery software - but why take the chance?

I feel that the above is on topic. I wish to explain to software authors that put their software up for download on GOTD that if they are offering software that requires a user's trust - that software needs to be available in a form that it can be reinstalled. I think that this is the reason that today's software is getting such a high thumbs down rate. Nice program - too many strings.

In a way it's interesting that a big part of the discussion centers on Roboform, which basically is only usable in the paid for version.
Every time though a password manager comes up, some other applications get mentioned and one or the other even looks promising like passpack (seems similar to A1-must offered here at one point) which has disposable passwords as a feature (useful for those travelling and frequenting internet or public computers)

However, for those already using one program or the other already, a switch would come with an awful lot of re-typing etc. and today's offering doesn't offer any added value to make that worthwhile.
For those wanting to get started with password mgmt, KeePass would be one app to definitely check out since it comes in a free version, is USB portable and does all of what it needs to do with a nicer and easy to use interface.
Now a password program also comes in handy for keeping a listing of all software serial numbers whenever it allows you to open up different databases, thus allowing you one database for ultra sensitive data and another one for low level passwords, say log-in information to forums etc.
Pura vida, AlexSJ

rf is ok. i installed the rf trial for someone who used google tb in ie. I was trying to replace tb with something cleaner. it was a puzzle trying to figure out how to create rf's 'searchplugins'. after the trial period, i tried adding one more whatever rf calls them ("cards"?). and rf gave me the reject message.. 10 "card" limit. so i uninstalled. i don't recall rf begging me to signup for credit cards :-)
i used removable media, non encrypted. but it can get lost.
for critical logon info, i use physical "coding", distributed ITRW. you can figure out your own version of that :-)

Very versatile program and easy to use.
Just what I was looking for to record a multitude of software serial numbers, registration and support-site data.
Other pros:
Search function very handy to quickly find websites, user names, etc.
Many options for security, backup, user notes etc.
I would probably pay for this if not on GOTD

BTW, Roboform useless to me-- crashes MS Internet Explorer browser and doesn't work on Firefox.

I'm baffled.

Whilst it's great of GOTD to offer the opportunity to sample fully-functioning commercial software, it's all a bit of a time-waster with commercial software that isn't -- repeat: isn't -- as fully functioning as long-established freeware.

I use Keepass. It's great. Has a good user support / help forum -- essential where any Open Source stuff is concerned as very often, the stuff itself is brilliant. . . but instructions on how to use it definitely aren't.

(Incidentally, before Keepass I used pass32 -- very, very tiny, no automated features, just a simple archive; I'm not sure if it's still available but if it is, I'd recommend it to those who don't need, or use, a lot of passwords.)

Anyway. I DL'd today's offering because I figured a $19.95 retail product must be better than the freeware already out there. But it ain't. The darn thing's so time-consuming in those areas where Keepass requires no time at all that I've uninstalled it.

No, I'm not one of those dewy-eyed geeks who holds that all freeware is better than paid-for software.

In this case though, I cannot see why any commercial developer would want to market a product which is so inferior to pre-existing Open Source freeware when it comes to convenience and usability.

If today's developer can refine Password Manager so that it does more in the way of managing the tasks of using passwords rather than merely storing passwords, then that'll be a product well worthy of evaluation and possible retail purchase.

Until then though: sorry, GOTD.

I've used both Password Manager and Roboform; Roboform is the hands down winner even though it isn't free. However Password Manager isn't bad and if you need something like this (and who doesn't), it's a good free choice. Nevertheless in my book Roboform 2 Go is well worth the $29.95.

Oh, BTW, MichaelSF (#10), GAOTD's "time-limited" offer does NOT mean the same thing as trial-ware such as RoboForm's 30-day demo. Simply put, "time-limited" refers to the fact that the length of time that the software is offered for free is limited. So far as I know, the software is always fully functional for as long as you want to keep it on your computer if you install it within the 24 hour limited time.

This software is not for me. I am looking for a password manager that pops up when I go to a non registered site and asks me if I want to save my information to my database. In order to input information into the database you have to:

1) Open PMD 3.62
2) Type in Master Password
3) Hit the New Entry Button (Key with "+" sign)
4) Type in all of the information including the website address.
5) Hit OK
And if I have already saved this information to my database, I want it to automatically fill in my username and password. In order to login to a site using this software you have to:

1)Go to the site
2)Open PMD 3.62
3)Type in Master Password
3)Locate your website on the list
4)Drag and drop the appropriate entries over
OK, so people with Roboform must be jumping up and down, as this is exactly what Roboform does! I know that because I USED to have Roboform. That is until I got dupped by them!

First Roboform is a great little program. I downloaded it after reading the recommendations from other reviewers on a previous GAOTD password manager (might have been an earlier version of this offering). I really liked it and went on to add about 100 entries (passcards) into my database. It did exactly what I wanted it to do. That is until 30 days passed...

As posted at the beginning of this thread, Roboform has a dirty little secret - after 30 days the FREE version asks you to trim your password list to TEN (10) entries or plunk down a minimum of $19.95! I don't have a problem paying for software (I have drawers full of software that I have purchased), but for most people, the name of the game at THIS site is FREE software. Had I known from the beginning that I was using essentially a demo version, I would have reconsidered spending the time inputting all of my information. Shame on me for not reading every line of the user agreement but in the thread where everyone was promoting it, I did not read one word mentioning it was a just a "Demo" RoboRipoff version.

Frankly, I almost felt like I was being extorted by Roboform and even when I went to uninstall it, it went begging and screaming for me to reconsider. It finally ended with an almost pathetic last ditch effort to let me have it for free if I just signed up for some credit cards and demo some other website services, "No strings attached"! Fortunately it did allow me to print off a nice list of all my stored information.

In summary, this free offering leaves much to be desired, but if you want to spend $19.95, Roboform is a good alternative.

Looks good but why pay for a password manager with all of the free ones available.

Personally, I like Billeo ( www.billeo.com ). Not only will it do what Password Manager Deluxe does it is also a fantastic bill paying manager. You can schedule payments, cancel them, and it will store your online receipts. And if you are brave enough to use a wallet online it will act as your wallet for your credit card.

To top it off banks are now purporting Billeo on their sites as a bill pay manager.

Thanks GAOTD, I'll stick to Billeo .....

Let's see. Putting your passwords in a "free" program that you normally pay for means that you can't reinstall if it gets hosed (say, in a hard drive death), which means that you've essentially handed your passwords over for ransom. No thanks. I'll stick with KeePass.
