Default Password Keeper, how does it work?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all. New to the forum and new to the BB. I have a high level question about Password Keeper. Is there any place I can find some documentation on it? Google was no help, other than leading me to this forum. I supposed that is a good thing. But as far as Password Keeper goes, I don't even understand what passwords it keeps or how it works. I've played with it a bit, but so far, no luck.

Thanks in advance for any info.

[EDIT] I did search the forum and found many posts containing the words "Password Keeper", but none that addressed my questions. There are a large number of posts that fit my search criteria so sorry if I missed it.

Greetings, welcome.

Password Keeper keeps whatever passwords or info you put in it.

Your Credit Card info and pin
Your websites you visit and password
Your banking websites and password
Your BlackBerry apps installed and license registration number
Your hotel or airline websites username and password...

etc. and etc., get the idea? Basically whatever you want.

Password Keeper is secure. You enter your own password for the application. Ten incorrect password attempts to enter it and the data within it is wiped.

You have to enter the data via the PK. If you want more advanced applications that do the same, and sync with an application on your desktop PC, look at DataVault and KeePass, and others.

Thanks J, let me try to be more specific. OK, so let's say I enter the information into Password Keeper for a website where I do my banking. Let's say I bank at Bank of Pastol, so I go to Password Keeper and enter "XXX.bankofpastol.com/login/php" (I can't post links yet, xxx=www) as the url, I enter "MLPastol" as the username, then "mamamia" for the password. Now what? So is it just here for my own reference? Is there a way to make Password Keeper enter that info when I visit that site?

I use Lastpass as a vault on my PC and I guess I was expecting it to work similarly to that. Am I expecting too much? I did enter some of my personal info into the Password Keeper screens and guess what, Password Keeper only pops up after I have done whatever I go there to do and I attempt to close the browser. A little less than I had hoped for as you can imagine.

Ascendo Datavault, which costs money, will do what you're looking for. There's a desktop application that syncs with the one on the phone. It also installs a toolbar into Firefox and Internet Explorer. From that you can pulldown the web items and it'll go to the webiste and populate the fields. Saving websites is the reverse, you enter all the info into the website and hit "Save Forms" and it saves the website and the populated fields.
