Free Password Manager

By Soft-o Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Nov 9, 2011

Chances are, you have all kinds of sensitive data lurking on your computer that could easily fall into the wrong hands if your machine were ever lost or stolen. Free Password Manager does much more than its name might imply. In addition to storing passwords, this simple utility can securely store all kinds of personal information, making it easy for you--but not others--to access.

The program has a simple but professional-looking interface, with a tree hierarchy down the left side that lets users organize their records in folders. The program comes with a sample database with folders for contacts, credit cards, software, notes, and Web sites, but users can easily create their own custom folders. For each record, users can enter a title, username, account name, URL, and password. The program will also track when each entry was created and modified, and by whom. The built-in Help file provides surprisingly comprehensive documentation, but most users will be able to figure out Free Password Manager on their own; it's quite intuitive. We liked the fact that unlike similar programs we've seen, Free Password Manager is specific about the kind of encryption it uses, stating in the Help file that it's AES encryption with a 256-bit key. We also liked it that Free Password Manager can be used either on your computer or on a portable device, as it comes with an installation wizard specifically for use with USB drives and other portable media. Overall, Free Password Manager is a versatile and easy-to-use tool, and we recommend it.

Free Password Manager installs and uninstalls without issues.
