Efficient Password Manager 3.61

Do you practice safe browsing? Part of being careful online is making sure your passwords are difficult to guess or crack, and it helps to have a different password for each site you visit too. That’s laudable in theory, but in practice trying to remember which complicated password goes with which web site can quickly prove an impossible task, and you can quickly end up relying on one or two relatively insecure passwords to access all your sensitive, online information.

Efficient Password Manager offers a solution to this problem: it can store all your sensitive logon information in a single, encrypted file, which is protected by a single master password. It’s this password you need to remember – giving you the ability to protect your online logon details with separate passwords without leaving you with the impossible task of remembering them all. It can even automatically generate secure passwords for you.

The program can also store all kinds of sensitive information, divided into categories. By default the program comes with four set up: passwords, software registration codes, email account details and FTP account details, plus a separate Favorite URLs section for storing web-based login information. You can add your own, plus create sub-categories, enabling you to quickly and easily keep your sensitive information organised and easy to hand.

The biggest drawback of the program is that it doesn’t integrate with your web browser, which means you need to manually copy and paste information to and from your browser to the program; contrast this to the likes of LastPass, which integrates with your browser offering to remember passwords as they’re entered, and capable of automatically filling in or even logging on, saving you time and hassle in the process.
