Of all the password recording and management solutions I have ever tried, my favorite so far is the CoffeeCup LockBox. You can download it for free for a test run, and if you decide to buy it, it costs a whopping $20.00 or so.
Simplicity is so powerful in this software. It is fast and easy to record, access, and find information in this program. And its use is not limited to logins and passwords.
The software was built with security in mind, as you need to enter an overall login and password in order to open the program.
Once your data is in there you can access it all from one desktop shortcut. Then with two or more clicks you have arrived to the data you are looking for.
Examples of the data you can store in this program:
- Usernames & passwords (along with login URLs and associated email addresses)
- Credit card information
- Bank account and routing numbers
- Pin numbers
- Software product keys
- Serial Numbers
- Activation Keys
- License numbers
- Membership information and numbers – mileage programs, library cards, student ID’s, etc
- Flight numbers and reservation numbers
- SSN or Tax ID numbers
- Passport and drivers license numbers
- Phone numbers
- FTP Information
… and you can probably think of more.
Maybe I’m the only one who wishes I had a penny for every hour I’ve ever lost, searching for lost logins, keys, numbers, passwords, ad infinitum. And a dollar for every time I never found them.
Or maybe I’m not alone! Who knows.
Many people like Roboform. That’s fine. I much prefer the Lockbox. Much simpler for me, easier to navigate, faster to use, and more versatile. I can open it up easily to find my numbers when I need them – whether I am online, or whether I am just on the phone with my bank. It also doesn’t pop up on my screen or interfere with routine online activity, and it doesn’t really need to “run in the background” when I’m not using it.
If you would like to see how it works and whether it is right for you, you can download it for a free trial. Just go to the Big Cup, and scroll to the bottom of the page to find the Lock Box.
