PasswordSafe

PasswordSafe - open source password manager

review from ClifNotes, May 2007, permalink Password Manager

 

Comment from PG Wolfe:

I am a firm believer in not using easy to remember passwords. Therfore, having a password application that generates random passwords is needed. One of the differences between Passpack (reviewed here) and Password Safe (http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/) is that Password Safe resides on your own harddrive (or thumb drive, if you prefer), not on their servers.

 

I have not found any limitations as I have approximately 75 different passwords maintained. I only have to remember one password...the password to open the application's database.

 

From Clif:

I tried out PasswordSafe and I wasn't crazy about it. I wasn't immediately able to figure out how to get the password from the application into my browser windows. I'm sure it works great. It's free and open source. I have no reason to say anything bad about it.

 

Thanks for the comment Wolfe!
