Password Prime's straightforward user interface is the perfect balance of simplicity and functionality. It proves that you don't need a lot of fancy buttons to get the job done.
Large, self-explanatory command buttons dominate the program's interface. There's a button for adding new username, password, and Web site information; a button for editing the entry, and a button for deleting the entry. You'll also find a series of buttons for copying the username and password information. We quickly jumped in without referring to the Help file and added our log-in information. One click took us to our entry's corresponding Web site. Username and password information are easily cut and pasted into their respective fields. We were able to just as easily edit and delete the same entry.
A good password manager should make it easier for you to manage and organize login information, and Password Prime does just that. Recommended for all skill levels.
From Oversight Technology:
Take control of your passwords. Anyone on your PC, including a hacker, can easily navigate to any of your accounts and gain access in a single click using your browser's built-in password saver utility. That is not safe and it is not secure. Each site must have a very different and hard to guess password and that makes remembering them all an even greater task.
What's new in this version:
This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
Is it good that I uninstalled it immediately after installation and attempted first use? It's the only pro I could come up with.
Well for one an instant error while installing. Another error on attempted first use. Software, even freebies, should be able to make a good first impression. This program doesn't impress right off the bat. Is it because of Windows 7? IE8?
I tend to give programs a chance, but this one annoyed me right off the bat. I saw another reviewer had the same problems as me : errors. I'm glad I uninstalled it because if it messes up on installation and first use, how good would it be at storing and remembering passwords (let alone being safe and protecting your identity). Hopefully I'll find a good password remembering program. So far I'm 0-2
This software was very easy to install. I loved the fact that it was so self explanatory. The small file size made it fast to download and install.
I don't download a lot of software and frankly find it a little unnerving ot have all of my passwords in one place. I haven't seen any reviews attesting to how secure the software really is.
i found the product to be very easy to use. I love the simplicity of it and the fact that there are n added bells and whistles to it. If you want to have a single encrypted place to keep all of your passwords, this product does the job perfectly. The user interface is simple and intuitive. The navigation buttons are self explanatory, although I like the fact that when i first downloaded the product and opened it, it started out with a pop-up window explaining the functionality of all the buttons as well as how to navigate the product. Simple and easy to use. I can't emphasize this enough.

Update: After using this software for a while, I would really wish that there was a "comments" section where free form comments can be added: i.e. customer service #, or a description of the website. Sometimes the website url alone is not a clear enough indicator for the content of the site. it would be nice if I could put in a description: e.g 401K plan, or Stocks, etc... If you add a lot of entries, the interface can get a little hard to manage. I would take off a star if I could revise my rating.
Software is not profession, they even can not make modal dialog when new record added to passwords database.
Software authors classify Password Prime cryptographic parameters as secret. However, world practice is to make cryptographic parameters public. Secret cryptographic parameters usually mean unsecure encryption or even back doors in code.
No one serious security expert will advice you to use software with unknown and sercret parameters to store sensitive data. Authors supposed not to be security professionals. I don't advice anyone to risk and store you data in this software. It is even less secure than encrypted Microsoft Excel document.
