Here's my recommendation for a portable password manager

http://sourceforge.net/projects/keepass/

I've been using this for several months and am really satisfied with the passeord generator and level of encryption.

No longer do I feel like I'm using lame passwords easy to crack and I carry it in my thumbdrive so when I go to work I can access persoanl and work related sites without having to remember so many pswrds!

Hope you guys give it a run and see how well it works. I simply installed in in the Corsair (gig) USB drive and it runs like a champ every time.

Also it has room for notes and pesonal additions so it's not just a password keeper but a bit more.

Thanks for a great forum for port. apps. you guys found a great niche to fill.

Roboform

I suggest you use the pass2go version of roboform locted here http://www.roboform.com/pass2go-usbkey.html

It's by far the best password manage and form filler program i've ever used, and it runs off your USB drive. They also have a U3 version.

Keepass is an opensource

Keepass is an opensource software and pass2go is a commercial software. No offense, but I never trust any commercial software when it comes to protecting privacy and such...

KeePass

Plus KeePass rocks Smile Hotkey Windows + K for me - one of my most used apps. Oh - and works on my palmtop too, which is a HUGE plus for when I'm going places.

Probably a good idea

Probably a good idea 888inc... unfortunately, I use pass2go Sad

It autofills... If keepass did that I would be in lust with it.

KeePass does do auto fill.

KeePass does do auto fill. You can even tell it How to auto fill for specific items. It is a VERY nice password manager!

it does? my understanding

it does? my understanding was that the KeeForm plugin could autofill but only into IE (/vomits in own mouth)..

Does it autofill without a hotkey? Maybe I need to give it another chance!

to my knowlege you have to

to my knowlege you have to set a hot key for it to autofill. But mind you that is ONE hotkey and ONE only, in the 'notes' of the password entry you can set a variable for "window title" and then that username/password will work for you in whatever window has that particular window title. Very Sexy IMHO

KeepassX a port that brings Linux and Mac into the family

KeepassX
With this new fork all the major OS's are now able to use keepass. Yet another good reason to add it to the portable apps family.

Password Manager Roboform2Go for FireFox Portable

Hello,

I am on a quick learning curve here.

I have Any Password on my portable apps drive, but need a "plug-in" or extension so that FireFox portable will allow me to login like RoboForm does for my PC with Internet Explorer.

I put Robform2go on my USB key, both in the root of the USB key {its default} as well as moved it to Portable Apps directory {where it won't run because the path isn't in the root}.

In either case, the interface and toolbar doesn't show up in Firefox portable.

Is there a solution out there for my needs? It would be neat to be able to click on a link and the login and password automatically be taken care of.

Thank you
Tom

Please don't...

Double post. It is considered bad etiquette.

Password Safe

I prefer Password Safe for my password manager. It has a password generator as well, and is recommended by Bruce Schenier. You can add notes to a given entry, and have it semi-automatically fill in the user field. Also, it's by default portable. Just extract it and delete the uninstaller.

KeePass is my (and many others) first choice ;-)

Hi Orihara,

It has a password generator as well, [...]. You can add notes to a given entry, and have it semi-automatically fill in the user field. Also, it's by default portable

KeePass Password Safe can all but the semi-automatically fill-in (= offer you your standard user name when you make a new entry). As compensation you could duplicate whole entries and there are much more goodies Wink like

  • more appealing graphical category-tree
  • strong plugin-architecure
  • on-screen keyboard
  • mighty auto-type functionality
  • TAN-support (including iTAN)
  • automatic backup-category for deleted entries
  • opening of URLs (http://, https://, ftp://, ssh://, cmd://)
  • ports to many different platforms like MAC, Linux, PocketPC etc.
  • import from different "password keeping applications" like Password Safe ;), CodeWallet, Oubliette, PINs ...

    There are other pros but I think this is enough Wink

    Bruce Schneier - something like a security guru - recommend Passwordsafe because it was initially developed by him.
    That doesn't mean that the open sourced KeePass isn't as good or even better Wink

    Bruce Schneier, Crypto-Gram 1999/09/15:
    As a cryptography and computer security expert, I have never understood the current fuss about the open source software movement. In the cryptography world, we consider open source necessary for good security; we have for decades. Public security is always more secure than proprietary security. It's true for cryptographic algorithms, security protocols, and security source code. For us, open source isn't just a business model; it's smart engineering practice.
