Editors' review

Password Memory 2009 is a free program that aims to keep your usernames and passwords in check. However, a glitch produced errors that prevented us from successfully saving our password information.

The user interface resembles the standard Microsoft interface, so it will look familiar to most people. Prominent command buttons to add, open, and delete password profiles are easily found. The program contains a search feature to look up a specific profile. We found it extremely intuitive, and we were able to quickly create a new password profile. Creating a new profile requires that you enter your username and password for the specific account, as well as set an expiration date, if any. Once we added the required information, we clicked the OK button, and immediately an error message appeared. The program did not save our information. The program includes a Help feature, but it merely takes you to the publisher's Web site for support. A visit to the forum did not provide the help we needed to successfully save our password profiles.

While we loved Password Memory 2009's easy-to-use interface, we were disappointed by its lackluster performance. If you're in the market for a free password manager, we recommend that you keep looking for one that doesn't produce so many errors.

    "Stunning little password keeper"

    May 19, 2014

    Version: Password Memory 5.1

    Pros

    Love this little program. I don't know what the problem was when CNET reviewed it but it's not there now. It's intuitive and delightfully easy to use, unlike some of the other password managers out there.
    If you want to go to a particular site, just click on the link in the date and up pops the site. Five stars from me!

    Cons

    I couldn't find any. This version doesn't have export functionality but for a few bucks you can buy the Pro version. This is win-win as far as I can see...

    Summary

    Superb! Check this out against the other password managers, and you'll come flying right back to this one. It's easy, fun to use and does everything you need...

    "Beautiful Office ribbon interface;EASY & VERY intuitive"

    January 28, 2009   |   By DrFunkenstein

    Version: Password Memory 2009 2.1

    Pros

    This is an excellent, simple password management app. I'm running Windows 7 64-bit and it installs and runs w/o a hitch. The interface has the ribbon look found in MS Office, so it's familiar, and it is VERY intuitive to use. No help file necessary

    Cons

    A little slow to launch on my Core i7 920 system, which is surprising, but very responsive otherwise. Doesn't lock when minimized or left unattended.

    Summary

    This is a simple-to-use, very intuitive password manager. I was looking for a replacement for Access Manager 2 that supports 64-bit OS's, since AM2 is opting to not support 64-bit. This one installs and runs perfectly on Windows 7 (beta). The interface is very familiar, in that it mirrors the MS Office 2007 ribbon look. There is no guessing about how to add an entry, and it prompts you to create a database initially, when it can't find one (unlike other apps I've tried, that leave you guessing as to why you can't do anything...until after you figure out you must create a db/registry).

    The main window shows your list of entries, with passwords masked, but one push of the "Unmask Passwords" button on the ribbon, and voila, all pw's are viewable. Perfect! One more click, and they're "****" again. Also, the scroll wheel works fine (I've read other reviews where the scroll wheel didn't work).

    This app also supports the little website icons in the list, so if you enter a URL for the entry, it will poll the url for the icon and save it to the entry, and then show it in the icon column of the main list. Pretty neat (now if all website admins would provide that little icon...).

    There is a drop-down list of entered usernames, so you don't have to enter the same name over and over, as predictive typing finds it for you.

    This is a keeper for sure, and it's free. The Pro version is only $10, which adds a few more features (like exporting your list).

    "Good program."

    October 30, 2008   |   By james.fox

    Version: Password Memory 2009 2.0

    Pros

    Very user friendly.

    Cons

    Won't let you use the same password for more than one account.

    Summary

    If you are running windows 2000, like I am. I found I needed to download and install gdiplus.dll in my Windows system folder. I just did a Google search and found plenty of sights that have this file to download with documentation on how to install it.

    "Security Warning"

    October 10, 2008   |   By Brianman3

    Version: Password Memory 2009 2.0

    Pros

    Looks nice.

    Cons

    I looked at the database file this program uses (*.FDB), and I found that even though the passwords were encoded, your logins, and groups names were visible when opened up in the simple WordPad. VERY VERY BAD

    Summary

    I looked at the database file this program uses (*.FDB), and I found that even though the passwords were encoded, your logins, and groups names were visible when opened up in the simple WordPad. This obviously shows the programmer had no clue about security, I un-installed the program when I found this out, I am not risking even displaying my logins all in one file.
