Although its portability is a big selling point, we encountered some minor program errors with this Web site password saver. KeyPass is a U3 application, so you'll need Launchpad enabled on your flash drive to install this app. The multitabbed interface takes only a quick read of the manual to comprehend. However, testers reported the app sometimes popped up with an error message while reading the Help screen. They found that minimizing the program before scrolling down the Help file seems to forestall any errors.
Operating KeyPass is front loaded. You'll have to manually save usernames, passwords, and code login scripts for each site you want to save. The scripts are very basic and most users will pick up the few commands with very little practice. Invoking the app to paste in username, password, and other data takes just a Ctrl-right-click in the first field. A small pop-up lists all saved accounts. Scroll to the one you need and click. Users with many Web accounts may find the scroll process a pain, but it is easy to create subfolders for better organization.
Though it lists no limitations, the free edition is capped at 10 entries. Sure, the easy scripting to type in the passwords makes KeyPass helpful. We'd have preferred if the app also captured the passwords and other data as we typed them to log in. Nevertheless, the portability and ease of use means this is a password keeper you'll want to test.
KeyPass is a versatile password manager that types your passwords for you. Unlike other password managers that require tedious cut-and-paste or drag-and-drop operations to enter your passwords, KeyPass types the passwords for you when a user-defined "hot key" is pressed. As such, it works with any browser or application, including Web browsers, terminal emulators and corporate services. You are not limited to Internet Explorer alone. KeyPass can be installed on external storage devices such as keychain-size USB flash drives.
