These days, you need to create a user account for almost any website, application or video game. This usually gives you access to more advanced and personalized features, but also more control over important information that you send to various companies.
This also means that you have to use a lot of passwords at the same time and, unless you’re using the same one for your every account (not recommended!), then you’re probably having a hard time remembering them all. But rather than writing them down in an unprotected notepad, you could use a password manager like Easy Password Storage.
It’s true that most browsers nowadays can automatically generate and remember passwords for almost any website that you visit. But their security is debatable and they can only do this online. With Easy Password Storage, you get to save all your passcodes, like the one you use with Windows, your Wi-Fi, documents or even video games.
First you must choose a username and then create a master password, “one password to rule them all” if you will. Make sure it’s one that you can remember or at least that you can write down on a piece paper and keep safe, because you won’t be able to recover it. You will only be able to set a hint that should help you remember the password.
Easy Password Storage doesn’t only store your passwords, but it can generate them as well. For protection, it uses two military grade encryption types: Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and Blowfish. You can also customize the way passwords are displayed in the interface, with names and a few icons. The program tells you can import icons directly from websites, but that’s just one of the many features that don’t work.
You may notice that commands from the context menu in the main interface don’t do anything. Also, you can probably use Wi-Fi to sync other devices that are in the same area, but unfortunately you cannot use the cloud for the same purpose; even though you are given this option, the cloud service just doesn’t work.
Easy Password Storage looks and behaves like a simple password manager that many would have found useful, but some of its broken features make it hard to recommend.
