Review: PassLook for Mac stores passwords in an encrypted database & retrieves them

Securely store your passwords in a fully-encrypted and searchable database using PassLook for Mac.

PassLook for Mac securely stores your passwords and can quickly retrieve them for you. A fully searchable app, it provides you with an accessible interface through which you can keep track of all your site log-in details. If password security is a big concern for you when managing multiple accounts, then you should give this app a try.

PassLook for Mac has a basic interface that lets you quickly search for passwords or add new entries. With a click you can view all stored passwords or export them to the clipboard. New entries have to be added manually by clicking on the "Add New" entry and entering the relevant account information, including username and password. The more organized your entries are, the easier it is to search for them later. After entering multiple passwords, we tried retrieving them. Search results were shown in real-time below the search box when the search term matched our entry. When the search term couldn't be found, the application displayed a dialog box informing us about this. Overall, the app proved to be speedy and useful, allowing us to add new passwords, search for them, or copy-paste them into sites in no time.

PassLook for Mac may feature a basic interface, but its functionality and nice search feature make it a good password management and retrieval solution. If you have trouble remembering your passwords, of if you prefer to enter passwords manually rather than relying on cookies, this app is definitely for you.
