A safe manager for all your passwords
- Password database can be saved in several locations
- Very complete entry for each password
- Perfect integration with web browser
- Password generator is not that useful
Creating new passwords every time I register for a online service is getting harder and harder. But before starting to use the same word everywhere and thus compromising my security, I'd rather use a password manager.
If you're in the same situation, Acebit Password Depot is probably your best choice. This comprehensive manager can handle all the usernames and passwords for all kinds of services, from online banking to FTP servers, including forums, blogs, email addresses and just about any other place where you're requested a password.
All your passwords are stored in a single database that can be saved in various locations (local drive, USB device, Internet server) and protected with a master password, a key file or both. You can organize your passwords in different categories and also assign an expiry date to them so that you're forced to change them on a regular basis.
In case you run out of ideas when coming up with new passwords, the program includes a password generator but I didn't find it that useful: it grabs characters from a Matrix-like code stream and doesn’t really produce usable passwords.
Acebit Password Depot still keeps an ace up its sleeve though: its seamless integration with your web browser, which enables you to manage passwords comfortably while you're browsing the Internet without having to change from one application to another.
Acebit Password Depot is as near to perfection as any password manager would like to reach: easy enough for the beginner and full of handy tools for expert users
