Editors' review

If you fear that someone will discover your passwords no matter how well you encrypt them, this app offers a unique solution for storing them according to a set of user-defined pictures. The drawback, of course, may come if the mnemonic doesn't remind you of the correct password.

ImagiPass installs an inconspicuous icon to the system tray. That's the simple part. At launch, the app opens a Help file that provides an overview of its features and describes how to use this password-security device. This information is a bit confusing, and would greatly benefit from simplified instructions. We found the interface for configuring a mnemonic to be rather amateurishly designed, a minor flaw in the whole scheme of things.

ImagiPass lets users configure graphic mnemonics for each password they configure. The security this app provides actually depends on the users memory, so if you have trouble remembering a password, you may also have trouble remembering what ImagiPasss picture combo is supposed to remind you of.

This app is simple enough to use, and worked fine in our tests. However, setting up the mnemonics didn't reassure us that we would accurately remember the associated passwords. The concept behind ImagiPass is interesting, but could use a bit more honing, especially in the area of user guidance. The trial period is rather short, but users will either love this tool or hate it, so it should be sufficient for most.
