This program stores login, finance, and e-mail account information, and software serial numbers, but there's a lot of work involved to understand and use it. The interface looks like Windows Explorer, with folders for each category but isn't quite as easy to use. Data is entered in a database with preset column headings. Under Internet, you can enter a description, username, and password, but it isn't apparent how to enter the URL. It's easier to go to the sites, where a pop-up will appear to let you know PassCrypt is ready to capture login information. The next time you open the site, the login information appears. PassCrypt works fast, but Windows offers a free option that does much the same thing. The application also creates new passwords, which may be its best feature. The other categories (banking, software, and e-mail) just store information. This might appeal to intermediate or advanced users who want to track account information in one place.

PassCrypt gives quick and secure access to Web and e-mail passwords, credit card numbers, and software registration codes. There are two main elements: a Password Editor for entering data, and a tray icon for quick access as you surf. Data is organized into folders and subfolders. Folder contents are displayed in a grid so all data is visible at once. You can search, sort, import, export, and generate printed reports.
