View Full Version : Cut'n Paste saving password/info managers?

03-26-2005, 01:07 AM
Hi all,

I'm looking for a password/info manager (with a syncing desktop companion) that'll do things like bringing up the web site once it's clicked in the app, then either fill in the login info automatically or completely log me in. I find that most password managers these days are a little cumbersom when doing things like going to a web site. You typically have to manually goto the site in your browser, once there you have to alt-tab back and forth to get your login information,etc,etc..

So, is there anything like that out there?

I found Roboforms but it's really just an extension of your browser and it doesn't seem to be really tailored to anything besides web sites..

Thanks in advance!

I use Flex Wallet by TwoPeaks. It does just what you are asking.

Looks interesting, too bad you can't import *anything* not even a CSV file!

That's crazy, they lost my business because of that, noway am I typing in ALL my info again!

Thanks for the pointer though!

I just found Ewallet which does exactly what I'm looking for, although it also doesn't do any sort of importing... :(

What's wrong with these companies, don't they think we've already been collecting data for a while?


I forsee lots of Cut'n Pasting in my future.. :(

Just a note: it's very insecure to store your passwords in an unencrypted file, such as a CSV. I think they're forcing you to be a little more secure in saving your passwords.

And you should at least KNOW your passwords, so copy/pasting might be a good refresher, so that if you don't have your PDA with you, you're not SOL :wink:

I'm only using CSV so I'm able to import them info another app, plan on deleting the file as soon as I'm done with it..

No way in heck would I be able to remember most of the passwords I have, I made good passwords... :)

BTW, the nice folks at Ilium Software (eWallet) directed to their importing tool which is a step in the right direction..
