IS IT FREEWARE? - Yes.

 

WHERE IS THE WEBSITE AT? - www.zippyplace.com

 

IS THE DOWNLOAD LINK EASY TO FIND? - Yes there's a download link on the home page.

 

WHAT KIND OF PROGRAM IS IT? - ZippyLock is a small and extremely easy to use password manager with unique anti-key-

logger, Triple-DES encryption, Google-like smart search box, inactivity lock, CAPTCHA and login delay against

dictionary attacks.

 

WHAT VERSIONS OF WINDOWS ARE REQUIRED? - Windows/2000/XP/Vista

 

DOES IT REQUIRE ANYTHING ELSE? (LIKE .NET) - Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 (Vista comes with .NET 2.0)

 

IS IT A LARGE OR SMALL DOWNLOAD? - Small @ 544KB.

 

IS IT AN EASY PROGRAM TO INSTALL? - Yes. It is just one msi file.

 

DOES IT COME WITH AN UNINSTALLER? - No. It can be removed from Control Panel/Add Remove Programs.

 

WHERE DID YOU FIND IT? - I wrote it.

 

WERE YOU LOOKING FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS? - Yes. I wrote ZippyLock for my own use because I don't trust browser's

auto-fill (see my FAQ on why).

 

WHAT ARE YOU USING IT FOR? - To enter passwords and other sensitive information on Internet based forms without

typing.

 

WHAT WERE YOU USING BEFORE YOU FOUND THIS? - I was just entering passwords directly on forms using the keyboard like everyone else.

 

HAS IT SOLVED A PROBLEM YOU WERE HAVING? - Yes. Its security is second to none. No other password manager comes with anti-keylogger and CAPTCHA protection. I am confident that ZippyLock is the best one in terms of security and ease of use.

 

WHAT PROBLEMS HAS IT CAUSED? - It is fairly stable now. To this date I have 216 registered users in the last 2 months, one user reported an installation related problem and I fixed it instantly, no other issues have been reported. The web site has release notes and release history. ZippyLock is well supported. I also try to educate users on password security. I have a very comprehensive FAQ page.

 

IS THE PROGRAM EASY TO USE? - Yes. Most users figure it out without help.

 

DOES IT COME WITH HELP FILES? - Yes.

 

WHAT FEATURES DO YOU LIKE OR NOT LIKE? - Security features are unprecedented, CAPTCHA defense wall, anti-key-logger, anti-clipboard-logger. I don't think other products can compete with its security features. It is extremely easy to use, Google-like search box, no tree controls, no groupings, easy management from system tray.

 

WHAT FEATURES WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ADDED OR TAKEN AWAY OR CHANGED? - Auto strong password generation.

 

 

Quote from the website

ZippyLock's password manager stores your credit card numbers, passwords, and similar private information, by locking them in a secure Triple-DES encrypted private file that only you can unlock. Then, when you need them - for example during Internet Banking - the program just lets you enter your passwords into forms automatically without requiring you to type. That's right.. With a few mouse clicks you just logon to Internet Banking. No need to remember passwords. No need to type them. And ZippyLock is absolutely FREE.

 

Note: Requires email registration and .NET Framework 2.0
