S10 Password Vault gives you a secure place to store all of your log-in information so that you can access it anytime and don't have to remember individual passwords. Once you enter all of your accounts into the app's convenient interface, you'll only have to remember your master password in order to log in to any other site or program.

Pros

Entry options: When you want to log in to a website, there are several methods you can use to get your details from the app into the form. For instance, you can just drag and drop the entries individually, or you can use hot keys to enter username and password at once or individually.

More than log-ins: In addition to basic log-in information, you can also use the Notes section of each account entry form to record other data that you'd like to be able to automatically enter on a regular basis. This could be an account number or any other information you want to have handy when accessing that account.

Cons

No Master Password recovery: There is no way to recover your Master Password if you forget it, and without that, there's no way to access all of the information you have stored in the app. It would be nice if there were some Password Hints or other option for retrieving or resetting the Master Password so that all is not lost if you can't remember it for some reason.

Bottom Line

S10 Password Vault is a handy and convenient program for keeping all of your sensitive information handy and secure. Its multiple entry options give you nice flexibility in how you use the app, and it's completely free for personal use.

"Three-in-one"

December 30, 2013  |  By jmartinez_431

 |  Version: S10 Password Vault 4.1

Pros

1. Assign a master password to access your encrypted vault, holding all your password/login info. Vault is encrypted!
2. Generates random passwords with option of special characters (i.e !@#^=), upper and lowercase letters!
3. Anti-keylogger protection!
4. No more remembering passwords to all your websites, S10 Password Vault keeps your login info stored and encrypted.
5. Autologin feature - uses short commands to log your username and passwords for easy entry!
Highly recommended to any user wanting to alleviate the problem of creating passwords that are safe and storing login info. This one is it. Get it and see how easy it is.

Cons

Hmm...none that I can think of.

"Not pleased"

August 30, 2013  |  By Slyfinger

 |  Version: S10 Password Vault 4.1

Pros

One stop password storage
Easy interface

Cons

Autologin is picky
No extension/add-on capability for Chrome
No autosave login information option

Summary

I log into various websites throughout the day for work and I save tons of time using a password manager with an autologin feature. I was making the transition from Roboform (trial version) to S10. I'll admit...Roboform spoiled me, but I was willing to use S10 and retype a lot to use a good password program. My biggest problem was that autologin did not always work properly. Gmail sign in went perfectly, but other sign in attempts on webpages that had more than just sign in blocks (links to other pages, etc) and I was on a completely different page of the website. This eliminated S10 from being useful and effective for me because it was adding time to my logins, and my time is at a premium right now.

I have no doubt S10 is working well for other users. But in my situation I have neither the time nor patience to sort out why S10 isn't working for me right 'out of the box.'

"Works fine, ease of use"

May 12, 2013  |  By facehoo

 |  Version: S10 Password Vault 4.1

Pros

Easy, good encryption of passwords, simple graphical interface

Cons

limited options

Summary

I still have to figure out how I can determine which browser the software has to use when none is default. Sometimes it uses firefox or IE. All in one nice application if one needs a program with no unnecessary stuff, just what it is made for

"Would not let me set Master Key"

April 22, 2013  |  By gpachal

 |  Version: S10 Password Vault 4.1

Pros

Free software
Sounds like a good product

Cons

Could not get the Master Key set screen; it kept bringing up the sign in screen.
Help page offers no troubleshooting information on this topic.
Internet searches also brought no answers.
CNET Bloatware installer: have to read all print on all pages to avoid getting loaded with bloatware. Suggest using alternative site to download from.

Summary

Running Windows 7 Home Premium; don't think this should be a problem.

"Best password manager out of the many I've used."

December 15, 2012  |  By scoolsnake

 |  Version: S10 Password Vault 4.1

Pros

Passwords are stored encrypted on your computer, not in the cloud. That always concerned me. It has a good help screen, which I didn't really have to use very much. I've changed all my passwords with the password generator. I never did that with the other managers. Afraid they would get lost. Easy to print them out after changing. They were also easy to tranfer to my other computers. The drag and drop works great, but I discovered a few short cuts, so I don't have to use it. I'm not looking for anymore password managers. Oh yeah, for the tag along junk that comes with it. Just uncheck the squares when installing. It's free unless you want to donate. It made me want to donate.

Cons

Setting up accounts takes a little more work, but worth it for my peace of mind. Not as automatic as some of the others, but alot better than trying to keep up with all the passwords.

Summary

I would recommend it to anyone. In fact, I'm going to set it up on my family and friends computer so they don't use the same password on all their accounts. Like I did for years.

"S10 installed with funmoods malware"

November 18, 2012  |  By Joe_New

 |  Version: S10 Password Vault 4.1

Pros

None AFAIK.

Cons

S10 installed from CNET with 'funmoods' malware!
It was rather confusing (for a beginner to password managers). I didn't keep it long enough to learn the ropes.

Summary

This password manager was hard to grasp for this newbie at using such programs.
But the real killer was, it installed from CNET with 'funmoods' malware! Curses! Highjacked my default search engine, my browser settings, and my homepage. I just hope Advanced Uninstaller PRO was able to get rid of it all.
So, IMHO, it's a big NO.

"GREAT PASSWORD MANAGER AT ALL"

November 14, 2012  |  By capitanflorius

 |  Version: S10 Password Vault 4.1

Pros

The program is a must have.
It is free
It is great.
It allows you to set different folders where you place your accont in order to have a more orderly.

Cons

No cons at all.

Summary

From the reviews I read on this page that some users are not getting well with this software.
I provide below some information on how this program works:
On my computer the operating system is window seven and goes very well.
Well, create a folder (or use one of those of program defaul) and in this folder an account in with write all the necessary data: title for quick recognition, the URL address of the page where you normally enter the access data, userid, password, and any comments.
We can make different folders containing different accounts.
When we're done, click an account and opens in the default browser the page where you enter the userid and password (but it's not necessary insert data manually, this program does it automatically).
Here's how:
In the page above use shorcut (customizable): "citrl + alt + L" so userid and password are entered automatically and run.
But first make sure that the blinking cursor be active in the first field (the field of userid.)
As you can see, it is easy to use and throw everything (even the login cnet).
The program use little RAM and few resources and too little disk space.
This program is a must have. I recommand to all users.
Very fine, very cool,
THE BEST.

"One of, if not the best password manager for Windows!"

September 29, 2012  |  By se7six

 |  Version: S10 Password Vault 4.1

Pros

VERY lightweight
Easy To Use
Custom Auto Login Commands
256-bit Encryption
FREE

Cons

Not a single one!

Summary

I see bad reviews of this great little gem and I don't agree with them. Once you figure out how to use S10 properly and how to set up custom auto logins you will love it! It even works great with complicated multiple page logins.

I ditched Password Safe and also Keepass for S10 and haven't looked back since. Both of those are great programs as well but for me S10 is the clear winner in all areas.

Highly recommended!

"A Password Manager That Does Nothing"

September 22, 2012  |  By EricVonZipper

 |  Version: S10 Password Vault 4.1

Pros

Free is the only one.

Cons

Does not auto login, does not manually login, it does nothing at all.

Summary

Followed the instructions and created a master password, filled in an account for my Hotmail but it wouldn't auto login (even though it was set to do so) wouldn't do anything. Disgusting! It's amazing someone actually has this on CNET to waste people's time with.

Updated on Sep 30, 2012

No auto-capture, no auto-login - it's just a clipboard with a password.

Updated on Oct 29, 2012

One of the WORST damn password managers (and I use the term loosely) ever. Will not login to Wal-Mart sign in page, Verizon.net sign in page - that was enough for me. Watched the video some guy made to show how to do a custom login - no way, no how will this thing work. More crap than a cow feed lot! Better fiddle with a Rubiks Cube, it's more productive.

Updated on Nov 10, 2012

Download the S10 4.1 from softpedia.com or softronics - those actually work and work good! S10 download is less than 1 MB, and it runs about 1 MB in memory - so light it almost isn't there. I recommend S10 highly - just don't download it from CNET!

"works fine"

August 28, 2012  |  By DC2349

 |  Version: S10 Password Vault 4.1

Pros

Not difficult to setup. Does what I need it to do.

Cons

Still can't get it to work on auto log in but it could just be my fault.

Summary

It does what I need it to do..store my passwords and creates a high rating password if I need it to. I had used MyPadlock until it went screwy. I just needed a simple way to store all my passwords. It works easily with Windows 7 and so far hasn't caused any problems with my anti-virus protection. I would recommend this program. It's easy to use and that is a plus. I use it with Goggle Chrome as my browser.
