I'm guessing he wants some

I'm guessing he wants some launcher to have a password built in, not a way to store passwords. Of course, since the original post is so vague (hint hint), I could be wrong too.

That's what I figured

However, before I bought my u3 drive I tried in vain to find a nice portable program that does this. He should probably just by a u3 drive.

Not the best idea

U3's security is via obscurity. (and I'm adding this into the PortableApps.com Menu in the next couple months). I have two U3 drives that I've reset and then been able to pull personal files from. That plus the fact that U3 is being end-of-lifed in about a year.

he means...

password potection in the PAM that would be for the whole drive. (IE, you need to activate PAM, and enter in a password before any of the drive is acsessable.

He said...

"basic passowrd system is available for the launcher" literally

The same we are all expecting... Cry

Every App protected by a password, inside the PAM (?) I think it is possible...

Ummm

So do I. And it will be a security through obscurity thing just as the existing solutions from competitors are.
