Errors impede performance

Look for a more capable password manager.

Password Memory 2009 is a free program that aims to keep your usernames and passwords in check. However, a glitch produced errors that prevented us from successfully saving our password information.

The user interface resembles the standard Microsoft interface, so it will look familiar to most people. Prominent command buttons to add, open, and delete password profiles are easily found. The program contains a search feature to look up a specific profile. We found it extremely intuitive, and we were able to quickly create a new password profile. Creating a new profile requires that you enter your username and password for the specific account, as well as set an expiration date, if any. Once we added the required information, we clicked the OK button, and immediately an error message appeared. The program did not save our information. The program includes a Help feature, but it merely takes you to the publisher's Web site for support. A visit to the forum did not provide the help we needed to successfully save our password profiles.

While we loved Password Memory 2009's easy-to-use interface, we were disappointed by its lackluster performance. If you're in the market for a free password manager, we recommend that you keep looking for one that doesn't produce so many errors.
