What is it?

Password Corral: A single repository to keep all of your passwords in.

Why is it the killerest?

Because using even the same secure/solid password everywhere is a bad idea. If your magazine subscription site gets hacked, hackers then have access to your bank account. This tool is dead simple to use, uses 128 bit Blowfish or Diamond2 encryption, and takes up minimal resources. It's terribly flexible, as you don't have to always put in only usernames and passwords, you can store PIN numbers, CD Codes, and other goodies in it. I use it to keep all of my accounts separate/secure. Best of all, it can be easily configured to export a backup everytime you change something so you can store a secured backup somewhere safe.

What could be improved?


How much does it cost?

100% Freeware

Only thing seemingly missing (that is available in FlexWallet) is auto-sync with my phone/pda so I have all that data with me when I'm in line at the bank, in my car, etc.

I've been using KeePass for over a year and I've been very happy with it. Just another link in case you want to compare. KeePass has strong encryption and the ability to add anything you want (including attachments) to records for individual sites. It will also remind you when passwords expire (if they do).

I have been using AnyPassword for along time and it keeps getting better, not only can it store user names and passwords, but URLS and comments aswell. Plus has a handyu search facility.

The bad thing about all these apps is that they are not cross platform. BAD.
