Password Safe Portable 3.38.2 has been released. Password Safe Portable is a password manager that lets you carry your logins and passwords to websites and more with you in a secure, encrypted file. It's packaged in Format so it can easily integrate with the Platform. And it's open source and completely free.

Update automatically or install from the portable app store in the Platform.


Screenshot Password Safe allows you to safely and easily create a secured and encrypted user name/password list. With Password Safe all you have to do is create and remember a single "Master Password" of your choice in order to unlock and access your entire user name/password list. Security starts with you, the user. Keeping written lists of passwords on scraps of paper, or in a text document on your desktop is unsafe and is easily viewed by prying eyes (both cyber-based and human). Using the same password over and over again across a wide spectrum of systems and web sites creates the nightmare scenario where once someone has figured out one password, they have figured out all your passwords and now have access to every part of your life (system, e-mail, retail, financial, work).

Password Safe Portable is packaged in a Installer so it will automatically detect an existing installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in Format, so it automatically works with the Platform including the Menu and Backup Utility.

For the curious, in addition to making the app portable via command line and portablizing the settings so they work on every machine, it also adds a configuration trick to help users place their first safe on the portable/cloud device. Otherwise, Password Safe defaults to a folder in the local Documents folder which is less than ideal. The launcher also portablizes this for completeness if a user saves to there instead and portablizes this path within the app's settings.

Sorry about that

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

One of the advantages of portable software is that you can test it and, if you are don't need it anymore, delete it without any leftovers.
