PasswordSafe 2.11 released

Somehow I missed this one for a while. PasswordSafe 2.11 was released last month. The install process replaces any existing copy of the program. There are only a few minor changes introduced in this release.


  1. I used to be a user of PasswordSafe until I discovered KeePass, a free/open-source password manager. It is more powerful and has more features than PasswordSafe.

  2. I'll check it out, but the one thing I like about pws is that not only is it simple to use, it LOOKS simple to use. Thanks for the link.

  3. After looking at KeePass, I think I might switch. It's definitely more work getting started, but there are some really cool productivity features. I especially like having the ability to let it run in the background and then press a hot key to have your username and password entered in a web page or application for you and hitting enter.

    Much better grouping capability too.

    Good find, Eddie.

  4. Glad you found it useful. Enjoy.

  5. At work we use a free password manager, CyberScrub KeyChain Password Manager and we really love it. here is some info I copied from their site:
    Manage ALL Passwords with One Phrase. When you log on to KeyChain with your Master Pass Phrase you will have instant access to all of your password protected websites. Select your destination from a special list you have created- then simply "Click & Go". It's that easy! Each time you visit a site requiring a user name and password KeyChain auto enters this information and logs you in. It even prompts you to add these passwords to the program if you have not already done so. Never manually fill in credit card details again. Online shopping is a snap because KeyChain automatically enters your selected credit card details, Shipping and Billing address and more. All of your data is secured with strong encryption. Only you have access to the sensitive data within KeyChain. All information, including passwords, credit cards and other data, is protected with strong encryption algorithms. The USB flash drive also synchronizes with your host computer to back up your encrypted password list. This is an important feature should your PC crash or fail. You may also utilize the USB flash drive, if desired, for Dual User Authentication. This requires the user to not only enter the Master Pass Phrase, but also to plug the USB flash drive into their computer. Easy to use, backed award winning CyberScrub Customer Support.
