Any piece of software claiming to be a password manager that offers an option to “Copy password to clipboard” is utter GARBAGE. The ***whole idea*** of password security is to bypass the clipboard (as is done by Keepass).
This offer is negligent in that it does not protect users by offering a security-prone product.

I'm sorry you are unable to understand my rationale in #15 and to be honest I don't know how to simplify so that you could.

#20, OldScotty, your comment #15 is there for anyone to read. Now you're trying to rationalize a false comment about password managers, and yes, your comment #15 was intended to scare people away from Password Manager Deluxe. What does a word processor have to do with a password manager? Nothing. Software doesn't quit working because the developer went out of business.

Password Manager Deluxe doesn't hold your passwords hostage, no decent password manager does. The vast majority of the time, the passwords which people are using are being used on websites. The failure of Password Manager Deluxe to integrate with browsers is a major oversight.

KeePass Password Safe is a major fail because it manages passwords, but wants you to turn off the security features of your operating system and browser. http://www.keeform.org/content/keepass/faq

#21, mike, so your definition of hard to use is that people actually need to read the Help file once? Just how often did you refer to whatever help information you could find about Photoshop or your video apps?

Not a password manager, but I also recommend the Firefox addon PasswordMaker to generate your passwords for storage. It allows you to regenerate your passwords even if your password manager is not available. It also has a simple portable desktop version for the same purpose, a small download, only one master password required.

#8: "When people ask for user-created themes for a simple application, I facepalm hard..."

Purely FWIW, people like to personalize stuff, whether it's their desktop wallpaper or choosing the color of their car. You or I may not particularly like their choices, but with software we'll never see it, so who cares? :-)

* * *

#15: "...I have lost documents when the company that wrote the word processor went out of business... Many of the password managers will not be around for very long, bear this in mind when using this type of software. I keep my important information on a flash drive (plus copy) to which only I have access, it’s my best solution maybe you have a better one."

FWIW, re: apps etc. no longer available, been there, done that, & you're right. When I 1st got interested in Virtual Machines I was trying to do something along the same lines, opening old files, & needed to run software in win98 SE -- I still keep that win98 VM just in case. Same thing applies to all sorts of media -- what happens to the images you've stored in a proprietary format when the company making the image editor folds?

Far as storing your info on a flash drive, IMHO whatever works for you is cool. In my experience when anyone feels something's too much unnecessary work they'll avoid it, whether you're talking about baking a cake from scratch, maintaining your car, or keeping private stuff private. Something is usually better than nothing... boxed cake mixes & quickie oil change shops are Very popular alternatives offering many/most the same benefits for [much] less pain. Storing your stuff on a flash drive may not stand up to foreign embassy standards, but so what -- it works for you & is clearly better than nothing at all. :-)

Password Manager Deluxe is a nice looking, *essentially* portable, .NET 2 password mgr., where you choose 1 of 4 options to set what happens when you double-click a stored password entry: "Copy password to clipboard", "View/Edit entry", "Open & Drag-Drop entry", & "Browse to Webpage". Databases are single files that can be stored pretty much anywhere [e.g. perhaps on an encrypted virtual drive on a USB stick?], passwords can be stored with a Title, Username, URL, Notes, & an attached file, they can be set to expire, and there's an included password generator with check boxes for Upper & Lower Case Letters, Numerals, & Special Characters [there's also an option to use Password Generator Pro, also from Kristanix].

While Password Manager Deluxe is a one file app, the "Password Manager Deluxe" program folder holds 7 files taking up ~1.3 MB -- a help file is included along with stuff like a license.txt, shortcut to the web site to purchase etc. Configuration data's stored in a "Kristanix Software" folder under User Application Data [XP] or User AppData Roaming [win7]. Password Manager Deluxe only uses the registry to store an uninstall key, making it as noted earlier, essentially portable -- if the app data folder is missing it'll re-create it, but you'll have to re-set any options you've changed. While it's arguable whether any .NET app can ever be fully portable, you could likely use the portableapps.com format to store the app data Kristanix Software folder alongside the app on a USB stick. [Note that the Tools menu -> Install to Removable Device only copies the database file to wherever.] While clicking the Help menu still shows: "Enter Registration key...", clicking "About Password Manager Deluxe..." shows it's a full, registered version. There is a bug in the dialog when you add a new database, where you can't browse to a new location, though you can type in the path & it works just fine. Possibly an oversight, when you open Password Manager Deluxe you're given a choice of databases to open based on stored configuration data but there's no browse feature -- if for example you have a database file on a USB stick that hasn't been opened on a particular PC/laptop before, that means you have to open another existing database, then use the app's open dialog to find & open the database on the USB device... if there is no configuration data [e.g. Password Manager Deluxe hasn't been run at all on a PC/laptop] then the dialog has an option to browse to an existing database. In testing, Process Explorer [by SysInternals at microsoft.com] shows Password Manager Deluxe using Internet Explorer & both .NET 2 & 4 components FWIW.

There are all sorts of password mgr.s & methods/strategies for storing passwords & pins -- personally I take a whatever works for you stance, figuring that something simple you'll actually use is better than something more secure you won't bother with. I mean writing a password on your desk with a Sharpie is probably better than using 12345 [& yes, a LOT of people use stuff like 12345 or abcdef]. I use the password generator built into KeePass, & try to use the full range of characters (including those not on your keyboard), but that's also very often a PITA -- I may have to try 3 or 4 passwords limiting the kinds of characters before a site will accept it, more than once a password's been accepted at setup but wouldn't work for login, & with sites like amazon.com some but not all login screens will work. Many (most?) people wouldn't/won't put up with that. Something else KeePass offers that today's GOTD doesn't is key files, meaning personally I couldn't use it -- I can't remember anything but the very simplest passwords. While key files are for me a necessity, pointing your password mgr. to a special file can make things easier &/or more convenient for anyone, though you do have to keep a couple of USB sticks secure [one for backup since USB sticks do suddenly fail]. Apps like Sticky Password do more, e.g. it'll fill in the blanks on a web site, but those same features make it harder to use -- you should be able to start using Password Manager Deluxe without opening the help file. KeePass has more features, but again you have to learn how to use them. If what you're after is something you can fire up & go, Password Manager Deluxe may be one of the easiest password mgr.s out there.

With any encryption software you need to think about that 6 monthly Windows re-install. ;-)

Will you have access to the passwords without this software after a clean install, unlikely

Encryption should be done with paid for software or Freeware

Plenty of free-ware to do passwords and many browsers do the task too,
It could end up being a bigger headache in the long run

#14, Mark Fordworth, #15, OldScotty, "The world is going to end and I'm going to lose all of my passwords. Wah...." Oh, foo, at least bother to follow the link to the developer's product page at the top of every giveaway before posting useless comments. Password Manager Deluxe does password import/export, as does every decent password manager including Sticky Password. Password Manager Deluxe's database can be copied to external devices. Sticky Password includes a portable version, and performs a true database merge between the installed and portable version. KeePass Password Safe requires a bunch of third-party plug-ins, and has problems with IE9 and Protected Mode. Sticky Password is integrated and just works.

@9: Did you try typing in the path manually? And it's probably a careless mistake on their side to look for existing files in s Save As dialog box.

@11: Which error? I'm on XP, and was only able to test 3 out of 10 conditions, so I don't know what the rest looks like.

@16: It doesn't look like the program actually use an Internet connection. The requests seemed to be for signing certificates. It's the same that you will get if you open the program file's Property and select Digital Signatures.

When you encrypt information in a proprietary format, be it passwords or files you rely on its availability in the future.
I have lost documents when the company that wrote the word processor went out of business, in its day it had been a major software company.
Many of the password managers will not be around for very long, bear this in mind when using this type of software.
I keep my important information on a flash drive (plus copy) to which only I have access, it's my best solution maybe you have a better one.

Wow, a non-portable way to encrypt and store important passwords, that I would have to buy to get back my passwords after Windows does what Windows often does and needs reinstalled, else I suffer the loss of all my passwords. No thanks, I've already lost all of my GotD programs before because of Windows, but I'm not setting myself up for a disastrous loss. Besides, if I were to use a password management program, it would be one that I could put on a USB key so I could have all of my passwords available wherever I go; a system that worked on only one computer would be useless to me even if I could freely reinstall it.

Besides KeePass Password Safe, the following 2 FREE APPS (PASSWORDS MANAGER + PASSWORDS GENERATOR) are worth a try and not just because they are both FREE:

Even the FREE and limited version of STICKY PASSWORD is better than this GAOTD.

THUMBS DOWN from me!!

Regarding my comment #12 about Sticky Password, if implemented correctly, then the database should be secure if you're always using a password (and no keyloggers). I'm using the convenience feature where a recognized attached device unlocks the database (security can be increased via a PIN), which can probably be broken (not easily, and would require the code, the database, and the device info, the PIN can be brute-forced). In general, more convenient passwords or password entry is less secure, less convenient is more secure.

Lack of integration with browsers is a deal-breaker for me, and many people won't like the .NET 2.0 requirement. I have to agree with other comments that Sticky Password (a former giveaway) is the best password manager which I've used, integrates with all major browsers except Safari (not sure why a Windows user would want to use that, anyway). I'm sure that Sticky Password's database encryption can be broken (I'm sorry if that's cryptic, no pun intended), but an attacker would have to know that I'm using it and obtain a copy of the password database.

#4, GMMan, A+, Game Modder, that's interesting but it gave me an error on a working network. Windows 7 has by far the best network troubleshooter which I've ever used. While we're talking about network issues, I remember someone saying that they only bought cheap routers. Most people don't realize just how critical and different routers are. I recommend buying current big-name routers, it makes a huge difference to all sorts of network issues, including obvious things like assigning IP addresses, to not so obvious browser issues, security, network performance, wireless performance, network device recognition, network maps, etc. Newer routers have features out the wazoo, like media serving and file sharing via attached hard disks, USB printer sharing, optimization based on uplink speed, traffic prioritization, etc.

Here's my take on these Password safe GOTD programs(not that anyone cares). It is pointless because if something happens, and you have to reinstall the OS, or revert back to an system image created before the Giveaway was given then you lose it all. No retrieving your passwords, unless you buy the program or install a trial, and sometimes trials are limited in what they can do. Keepass is free, works just as good and will never expire.

@5 "@1: The first time you run the program there is a box with the path to the password database. Just edit that. IIRC there’s even a browse button beside it."

Did you try your tip. Over here press browse and it will tell you that the file do not exist. It looks like when you try to make a new database at the startup it is actually looking for a pressent one.

Well to be frank i never liked an encrypting and password protection program that was ever given from GAOTD, this program has a two process.

1) You manually give the website and the name and password (which i think is mandatory in every password manager)
2) The next Windows opens which tells the user to drag and drop the Username and the Password in the username box of forums and yahoo entry box'x : which to be frank is quite irritating.

Password Manager Deluxe Windows doesn't look crispy like its got a real snappy quality. Sticky Password Manager is way better then this program,,,,,,,

Sorry this i got to uninstall it man. THUMPS DOWN.

Mini announcement: If you're having trouble activating this software because the wrapper tells you that it can't connect or if the key's invalid, please try the GOTD Network Troubleshooter. It uses the official GOTD network troubleshooting module (the GUI I made, based on the GUI embedded in the wrapper). Since the troubleshooting module's designed by GOTD, it should cover almost all of the issues the wrapper may encounter in terms of network problems.

More info: http://game.giveawayoftheday.com/save-the-snails/#comment-194290

(Note: This is not an official GOTD package. The only part that is official is the troubleshooting module (AppNetworkFailTroubleshooter.dll), which was written completely by the GOTD team. The rest is written by me, to give the troubleshooter an environment to run, and to report back the error.)

Hmm... says that it uses AES to encrypt. OK. I might try to make something that will decrypt the database. Seems like this uses XML to store the data, from what I can see.

This was a big disappointment. This Giveaway looks like an extremely stripped down KeePass Password Safe. Uninstalled and thumbs down. KeePass Password Safe offers 1000% more and is free The program allowed me to not decide where the new database would be. It complained only that it did not exist.
