The number of passwords kept by users has changed drastically over the last decade. 10-15 years ago, online services were, in principle, limited to emails only. With the avalanche of today’s online services, it’s virtually impossible to memorize all passwords. Worse, online services are asking for increasingly complex passwords to meet the increasing challenges of online security.
This application is a PC tool that helps anyone to remember passwords and keep them protected. The program is a portable app that can run on a USB drive without the need for installation. Therefore, the user can just insert the drive to any computer and gain access to the database of saved passwords.
To start using this application, the user will have to create a new database by naming it and assigning a master password. After that, the user can start adding the passwords for various services by specifying the title, username, password, service URL, and optional notes.
