Creating strong passwords is easy, but remembering them is something else entirely; the very characteristics that make passwords hard to crack also make them hard to remember. That's where password managers come in. Efficient Password Manager Free Portable promises to store your passwords and even help you create new, stronger ones. Best of all, it lives on your USB drive or other portable device, ensuring that your passwords are always handy.
Efficient Password Manager has a plain and attractive interface that reminded us a bit of Microsoft Office. The program comes with a built-in Help file, but we didn't need to consult it; a few minutes of exploring was all it took to figure things out. Efficient Password Manager has places to store software registration codes, e-mail account information, and FTP account information, as well as log-ins for other Web sites. The Favorite URLs menu gives you quick access to the passwords you use the most, and a search feature makes it easy to find your less used information. Of course, all of this information is protected by a master password, and you'd better be careful with it; if you forget it, you lose access to everything you've stored within Efficient Password Manager. We liked it that the program is capable of copying your username or password to the clipboard, making it easy to insert lengthy passwords where you need them instead of typing them out. The password generator lets users specify the type and number of characters to use, allowing users to create more complex passwords as needed. Overall, we thought that Efficient Password Manager Free Portable was a smart and easy-to-use solution to the perpetual problem of password management, and we recommend it.
Efficient Password Manager Free Portable installs and uninstalls without issues.
