Editors' Review

Flying Bit Password keeper launches a compact but cleanly designed, user-friendly interface that makes organizing your passwords according to type a very simple matter. We liked especially how the interface's toolbar included an icon that made saving the utility to a USB drive or other removable device so simple.

In our tests, this free utility performed very well. It's simple enough that novice users will easily master it. The ability to organize passwords in the directory by function added to the utility's ease of use and usefulness. We liked the detail it provided for the items associated with our passwords, and that we could choose from four encryption methods--AES (Rijnadael) 256-bit; AES (Rijnadael) 128-bit; Twofish; and Blowfish--which should be adequate for most personal use. Commercial and expert users will require more bells and whistles, and there are more robust encryption apps available, but most home users will find this freeware utility handy enough.

"Keep it simple, stupid!"

August 11, 2012  |  By sparkyronzap

 |  Version: FlyingBit Password Keeper 1.5.0.52

Pros

It's simplicity is AMAZING! And you can install it on a USB drive!

Cons

It doesn't make a backup file on it's own. You have to do it manually. I got this wonderful program FREE so I think I can make my own backup files!!!

Summary

MAKE THOSE BACKUP FILES!!! After 2 years of use my keeper suddenly changed it's password for me!!! I asked the programmer what to do and he said " erase it and install it again, because there ain't no back door or master password, and you can't crack it. PERIOD "!!!

I like the h*** out of that answer!!!

"Good interface. Field-entry & sorting could be better."

December 23, 2011  |  By Enough Already

 |  Version: FlyingBit Password Keeper 1.5.0.52

Pros

It looks tidy and I'm sure the security is good. It's relatively easy to use if the cons (below) are adapted to.

Cons

Having to create a "Passcard" then add discrete entries for every single field (username, password, URL, etc.) seems time-consuming compared to other apps that put all data in a single dialog.

The inability to sort entries alphabetically seems odd, and could become an issue with many entries, though you can drag them manually into order. There's no auto-typing into forms either, but that's acceptable considering it's a basic app.

For years, I found another freeware app called "Password Corral" to be ideal, GUI-wise, though it crashed on me once too often and I lost trust in it. I was hoping this app would be similar in its interface.

Summary

Not bad, except for the cons above. I'd recommend it to folks wanting simplicity but I may go with KeePass.

Correction: I see that it does support auto-filling of form fields, just with a shortcut key-combo that takes a bit of configuration.

It also seems to have no provision to automatically time-out to the Tray and lock itself, so you have to be diligent and do that manually if your computer as a whole lacks a screen time-out password. I'm sure they could add a time-out feature to improve this app. That, plus the ability to auto-alphabetize entries would make it notably better.
