Protect your passwords, banking details, addresses and more with these great free apps.
There’s no getting around it. Passwords are a curse of modern life. As, unfortunately, are the growing threats of hacking and cybercrime. So, it’s little wonder that password managers are growing in popularity. How they go about it varies slightly, but the core offer is basically the same: just a single, master-password to remember, and these clever apps do the rest for you. Sounds good? It is!
The programs featured in our selection are: Icecream Password Manager; Kaspersky Password Manager; LastPass; Password Boss and Password Memory.
Password Memory offers secure password storage by using several different algorithms to perform encryptions. It also auto-generates random passwords for higher security. The app also comes with a wide range of configuration settings that are available via the Options screen. From here you can choose other languages and pick from various color schemes. You can also make Password Memory automatically run at system startup and configure it to stay on top of other frames. If you need a visual reminder of the app, then you can create an icon in the system tray area for fast access. We also really like that the interface is familiar, is easy to navigate and it has a relatively small footprint, meaning it won’t slow down your system.
