Password Safe allows you to manage your old passwords and to easily and quickly generate, store, organize, retrieve, and use complex new passwords, using password policies that you control. Once stored, your user names and passwords are just a few clicks away.
Using Password Safe you can organize your passwords using your own customizable references - for example, by user ID, category, web site, or location. You can choose to store all your passwords in a single encrypted master password list (an encrypted password database), or use multiple databases to further organize your passwords (work and home, for example). And with its intuitive interface you will be up and running in minutes.
- The password expiration warning mechanism now checks for expiration daily. The display of expired and almost-expired entries has been redesigned, allowing users to update the entry directly. When an expired password is changed, the expiry date will be cleared unless there is a recurring password expiry interval, in which case a new expiry date will be calculated.
- Double-clicking on the system tray icon when PasswordSafe is not minimized now brings it to front, instead of minimizing.
- Rename of an entry or group in the Tree View can now only be performed via the Rename shortcut (default value F2), using the Edit menu or the right-click context menu. Edit in place by double clicking the entry is no longer allowed as, most of the time, this was not the desired action.
- Filtered views are now updated when an entry"s edited, e.g., if an entry is edited such that it no longer satisfies the filter"s criteria, it will be removed from the display.
