Password Safe, a new step for password storage and generating software

 Q:   Ask a Question about Password Safe, a new step for password storage and generating software       
Password Safe, a new step for password storage and generating software With the recent internet development, passwords have become a part of our online experience. Almost every website requires a registration in order to access all its important features.

A user must memorize email passwords, bank accounts passwords, software passwords and many more. Basically, without a powerful storage system you must use one of the two available solutions: either use the same password (or a few variations of the same password) for each account or store your important passwords directly into your computer (or even worse, on paper).

Using the same password is extremely risky. If one account is compromised, a hacker can access all other accounts without any problems. Keeping your passwords directly into your personal computer is risky as well.

Malicious software a nd spywares can track them down and in just a few seconds you can lose all your important data.

In an attempt to solve this problem, software developers decided to focus in creating a new type of application: password generators and password storage software. The concept is relatively simple: that product is able to safely store all your passwords into an encrypted database. Using this system, instead of memorizing multiple passwords, a user can remember only one password; master password. That master password is used to unlock these encrypted databases.

The system seems to be reliable and simple. Unfortunately, many of these password storage applications are quite expensive and a common user cannot afford them. The price for one single license can go up to 1000 dollars, depending on how complex the software is.

Recently I had to test Password Safe, a new and interesting password generator and storage applications. The first thing that “hits” you when you check this software is its price. Actually, there is no price as Password Safe is completely free. My first impression was: "Great, just another random password storage software" but soon I realized that I was wrong.

Password Safe is one of the best software of its type. It incorporates some of the most important characteristics like a simple and intuitive interface, plenty of features, protection system, password management system and an additional layer of security provided by a virtual keyboard for password insertion. I was surprised of how complex this software can be. It is fast, reliable and extremely easy to use, even by someone without strong technical knowledge.
