Faulty program

Take a pass on this spotty password manager.

Password Manager XP promises to safeguard username and password information for various accounts. However, a glitch produced several error messages when we put the program to the test.

The user interface is pretty basic, with menu and shortcut commands at the top of the window for saving databases and adding files and folders. A tree menu displays all of the created databases. Once the program was activated, we created a new database and browsed the Web, visiting sites that required a username and password. As soon as we signed in, the program prompted us to save the information. The first time we clicked the OK button, the information failed to save to our designated database. We visited a different page, but received an error message that we could not get passed. What's more, the program froze on us and failed to respond. Despite the issues, when we closed and reopened the program, our username and password information appeared in the tree menu.

A Help file is available through the user interface. Although the program ultimately saved our information, it wasn't worth the error messages and overall poor performance. We recommend you keep looking for a more functional program that doesn't have so many issues.
