ALPass

CNET Editors' review

Remember usernames and passwords with this free password manager that's simple in design, but offers all the features you need to make logging in easy.

To use ALPass, you have to create a username and password, and you'll have to remember it since there's no way to retrieve it. The interface consists of navigational buttons, a URL field, and a tree menu that displays links for the log-in sites that you manually enter. The program can be accessed through the system tray or as a shortcut on your browser toolbar. Adding a Web site was a piece of cake as all we had to do was click the Add button. Likewise, we were able to modify and delete each username and password. The auto-fill feature quickly added our username and password when we visited one of our saved pages. The extensive Preferences menu lists a variety of auto features (auto-fill, auto-login) for you to choose, as well as extra security precautions such as enabling the auto log-out after periods of inactivity. Each option that we chose performed as promised. A Help menu is included, but even novice users will find it unnecessary.

With its effectiveness and ease of use, ALPass is a viable password manager we recommend for all users.

    "UNSUPPORTED"

    August 9, 2010  |   By akeem

    Version: ALPass 2.8

    Pros

    Good password management - two years ago

    Cons

    Incompatible with IE8 and no plans to support it. This is essentially an unsupported product since they came out with ALToolbar as a kludgy substitute

    Summary

    When incompatibility with IE8 was identified in 2008, first response was "we're working on it." Then, "We have several other projects," followed by "We have AL Toolbar", and finally, "There will be no upgrade for reasons we can't discuss." This product is DOA.

    "Good program for storage password and encrypt them"

    July 10, 2010  |   By capitanflorius

    Version: ALPass 2.8

    Pros

    It has a drag and drop for sites that it can't identify.
    Very easy interface. Fast in function

    Cons

    Does not work with Explorer 8

    Summary

    It is completly free.
    It doesn't contain any spy/ malware. I use it daily as it saves me from entering my numerous email accounts all the time and it's safely encrypted

    "Works good once you cover all bases..."

    May 25, 2009  |   By OldeFart

    Version: ALPass 2.8

    Pros

    It has a drag and drop for sites that it can't identify. All you have to do is manually enter the info once then when you visit and it doesn't respond, click on the icon, choose the info from it's box then drag'n drop.

    Cons

    It only works on site logins, there are no other options (such as application info).

    Summary

    Be as it may, this little program is a keeper.. It does the same thing that gator once did but without the constant nag to buy, It doesn't contain any spy/ malware. I use it daily as it saves me from entering my numerous email accounts all the time and it's safely encrypted. Most important, it's free! With a small section at the bottom for ads that neither nags nor irritates, I say ' Go for it '..

    Updated on Jan 19, 2010

    Have been using this gadget for a few months now and no, it does not work with IE8 (automatically) you have to manually drag 'n drop into the spaces (in opera and mozilla even that doesn't work altogether). Still it beats having to retype everytime you visit and.. isn't that the point?
