Fox Password Safe

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Though this utility for password storage gets the job done, some competitors offer a more generous feature set. Fox Password Safe provides a database for Web and e-mail logins, credit card information, and documents, and locks up the data with 256-bit encryption. For added security, it can generate strong passwords and automatically expire passwords at regular intervals. To access an encrypted file, just double-click it in Password Safe. You cut and paste other kinds of data from Password Safe's interface, which is accessible through the system tray. Creating new entries is easy enough, though we wish the help files were built-in rather than Web based. We also should note that the software can't fill in Web forms like some other products in its class. On the upside, the program doesn't take much memory, and it claims to protect Internet Explorer from spyware attacks (we didn't test this feature). Folks seeking hassle-free password storage might like this one, but power users probably will want to peruse their alternatives.
