Editors' Review

+
This handy tool lets you securely store your user IDs and passwords in a secure database. Password Protection has a neat and uncomplicated interface that lets you arrange your passwords in user-specified categories. Information including address, username, and password is arranged in a simple table. Password Protection offers ample security measures such as password-protection for the program, masking the password under the password column, and automatically locking the interface when it's minimized or after a period of inactivity. You'll also find a handy password generator to create random, and more secure, passwords for your accounts. A search tool locates entries by description, user ID, or password. Password Protection can be used by any security-conscious user, and it's offered as freeware.

"Very simple entry format."

September 17, 2010  |  By nsolent_mynx

 |  Version: Password Protection 4.1.3

Pros

If you choose to enter URL with corresponding user ID and password, program will automatically have your browser go there, or just copy user ID and password to clipboard for automatic entry.

Cons

While you can add columns for more info for each entry, apparently you are limited as to how many rows (entries) you can have.
BIG CON: tracking down merkinawards.com current (2010) web site! ! !

Summary

Ease of use is a big plus.

"Not As Good As Other Free Password Programs"

March 20, 2008  |  By rgknowlton

 |  Version: Password Protection 4.1.3

Pros

Advertised Blowfish 448 encryption.

VERY basic interface and features.

Software is free but you have to go to their website and register to get a free key.

Cons

It does the job, but its interface is not as easy or as clean as programs like Anypassword and Access Manager 2. Also this program lacks the extra fields and comments section that Anypassword and Access Manager 2 have.

"Works nicely - but then locks you out!"

September 22, 2007  |  By midnight.dream

 |  Version: Password Protection 4.1.3

Pros

-It seemed to be a very nice and easy program to use right when you start with it; a quick way to keep all your passwords in one place when you use a lot of different logins.

Cons

-The very big downfall of this program is that after about a week, you log in and it tells you that you must register. Okay, it's supposed to be free, but the "website" they have listed does not even EXIST. This supposed serial key is impossible to gain, and the program stays frozen, locking you out of actually accessing any of the information you have stored.

-I highly recommend that NO ONE downloads this again. It's, in essence, a waste of time and space on your computer. You end up losing all those entered passwords. This should not even be listed on download.com

"Registration code nowhere to be found"

June 19, 2007  |  By absolutelylee

 |  Version: Password Protection 4.1.3

Pros

At first I thought this program was great. It had a great way to keep track of IDs and passwords. I used a few times over the 30 day "trial-period". I never bothered to register while I was using it. I started putting passwords in there without writing them down anywhere. Then I opened it up a few days after the trial period and it locked all of the functions and told me to register. When I went to the Merkin Awards website, I found that domain name is no longer registed. I found the last cached page on the internet archive is from 2005. So I did what any Microsoft user would do, I set the clock backward a few days. When I opened the application again, everything was available again. So at least I got my passwords back.

Cons

Merkin Awards website no longer exists for users to register.

Owner needs to remove registration locks from software.

No technical support.

"Terrible"

June 17, 2007  |  By jevans369

 |  Version: Password Protection 4.1.3

Pros

Easy Interface. But have been doing the same exact thing in MS Word.

Cons

Everytime I log in it says "incorrect username/password and I know it is not. Keep having to install new username/password. When trying to go to help online it takes you to the mfg. site with links to OTHER sites. No help.
