Though this database application offers a satisfying array of security measures to protect your account information, it's not without flaws. PassPic's busy interface offers standard controls for creating, modifying, and navigating records, and a tabbed window for viewing entries by category, name, URL, and other attributes. The six tabs don't make it any easier to locate data, and we would prefer to have one master list of records with options to sort and filter them. Sample data and a New Password Account wizard are welcome additions to help first-time users set up their information. A master password protects the database, and the autolock feature prevents access after a user-specified period of idle time when the program is open. The password generator is fairly standard, but we like the option to create expiration dates for passwords and the reminders to change them. Despite the awkward design of the main window, PassPic does a nice job of launching URLs associated with accounts and proves to be a time-saver when entering login information online. We aren't thrilled with this application's look, but we like its arsenal of tools to help keep personal data secure and expedite access to Web accounts.
