CNET Editors' review
Tired of providing a password to log on to your PC when you launch it each day? This utility takes care of that for you, and its encryption features supposedly prevent anyone from uncovering your password from the system. But is that really what your want to do?
Safe AutoLogon provides your password to the system automatically when you power up your PC. At first run, the utility opens a simple dialog box for you to enter your username, password, and domain. In our tests, the utility worked like a breeze. We no longer had to select our user account and supply our password to launch Windows and begin working. The problem comes, of course, from a system with multiple users. Any of them can boot the PC, and it'll automatically launch the default user account, not theirs.
Safe AutoLogon worked fine in our tests, and the 30-day demo limit is generous enough for anyone to determine whether to pay for a registered version. From our perspective, negating a security feature, even if you don't share your computer, may not be the best course of action.
From WM Software:
Why automatically logon? You probably don't want to if accessing secure data, but there are many reasons when an automatic logon is beneficial (classrooms, kiosks, hospitals, access to internal single-signon systems, mobile workstations, etc). Used in hospitals, warehouses, homes, classrooms, and kiosks worldwide, Safe AutoLogon is ready to meet all of your automatic login needs. When paired with our Safe AutoLogon Password Server (SALPS) software, companies get a complete automatic logon solution with centralized password and user management for all their Safe AutuLogon clients. SALPS also implements internal password policies and can enforce HIPAA compliance. Because information security is the most important issue for most organizations, Safe AutoLogon encrypts the logon username and password in a high-encryption (256-bit AES) format. Many other options such as locking the screen after logging on, local/domain permissions, and keeping users logged onto the computer are included. Free 21-day trial.
