i'm assuming you can store passwords for various email addresses or sites and instead of typing them in when logging in you can just copy/paste from password keeper.

I don't think that's what it's for, but I was hoping that it's for. From doing a search I get the impression that it's a password protected "safe" for storing stuff, but there's no way to automatically enter UN/PW from various websites using it. Or is there?

its a secure storage for information like other passwords

Try it out. There is an option to copy the un/pw from the application and then paste it anywhere such as a website.

It is VERY handy and VERY secure. I keep every password and all sesitive account information there. There is no safer place to keep this information

Sweet... guess I was right about what PW Keeper does.

Think i might actually set it up and use it to store all my email login/pw info as well as any other sites I frequent..

Default take a look at this one did I mention it's FREE...?

KeePass - The Open-Source Password Safe.......is free open source utility...from

"sourceforge.net"

Now I don't know if it will work on the pear but I run it off my Corsair USB thumb drive and love the security. Generate strong encryption passwords and only remember one, the log in password...HA....

Sine I don't own a Pearl yet the PDA feature is what I'm after and hope that I can run this utility on the PDA portion of the Pearl.

I do not think you will need any other password keeper after you get your Pearl. The Pearls password keeper is quite safe and I am not sure if your software will run on the Pearl.

I can't recall setting a password on the initial set up for the password keeper and i've tried a few times with my known passwords which i use for other stuff and it isn't any of them. Is there a standard password that you change or any way to find out what it is or reset it? Where & when do you set up the password to let you access the keeper?

The same thing happened to me. Apparently it is supposed to prompt you to set your password the first time you open it. I don't recall doing that.

To get around this, I just kept entering passwords until I ran out of tries. The only thing that happens is all the stored passwords are wiped out. No big deal since I haven't even used the program yet. After that happens you can reset the password yourself.

Default wireless sync with password keeper

I know that wireless sync is an option for this but where are the encrypted files stored on a computer? Can you choose or is it in a default folder of some sort?

Can PW keeper import passwords stored in another program, like one I had on my treo650?

I have a related question. Is there a companion desktop program for Password Keeper, so the info can be accessed (securely of course!) from the desktop?

(I also would like to know if it's possible to import passwords from the Secret!/TopSecret program I was using on my Treo.)

So the best advice to get round the problem of not knowing the password is to try ten times and reset it after that? Will this really work or is there a better way?

Yeah, I'd like to know if you can synch passwords from the DM to the Pearl into PW Keeper.

IMO it's not functional. I use Cryptmagic but there are others too. Ascendo DataVault looks good and there is Splash Data. I have a page on Crypt and Minisafe which I don't like anymore. For those with data this is one app that is a must buy.

I've used password keeper for 2 years now. It has so many passwords in it that it takes about 5 seconds for the app to decrypt everything to open it. I would be lost without my password keeper. No, it doesn't have companion software for the PC but it works great for me anyway. If you are on BES it syncs wirelessly so if your BB crashes or you lose it, it all comes back after EA. I, personally, give it a

Sorta unclear....you can use it to store passwords, I know that. Can you use it to log into sites? Like, do the Password Keeper and Browser work together?
