[prMac.com] Palma De Mallorca, Spain - Independent developer Alco Blom today is pleased to announce Web Confidential 4.0 for OS X, a major update to his popular Productivity app that consolidates and stores all a user's confidential information, such as Passwords, PINS, User IDs, Serial Numbers, etc. using unbreakable Blowfish encryption. Featuring 14 pre-defined password categories, Web Confidential provides instant access to passwords from within the browser and from the Dock. The app employs a convenient cardfile metaphor to assure easy setup, and can also be used to generate new passwords.
Web Confidential comes with 14 pre-defined categories of confidential information: WWW forms, WWW Sites, FTP Servers, Newsgroups, Login Accounts, Email Accounts, Bank Accounts, Online Banking, Credit Cards, ATM/PIN Cards, Personal Data, Software Keys, Serial Numbers, Membership Numbers, and Miscellaneous. To store data, the user selects the appropriate category and clicks the "+" Add button.
Users can retrieve passwords through the Web Confidential app directly, simply by typing the first few letters of the search term into the search field. Selecting the required item, users can copy and paste via the Action menu. System-wide access to passwords is gained in a similar manner. For example, if the user ID and password is needed to access a web site, the first step is to find it using the Search toolbar item as previously discussed. When the password is located, the user selects it in the List View. Now, choosing "Go" from the Action menu automatically switches to the browser and the system-wide Password Utility Window is shown, giving the user access to all the data about this password. Clicking on the "ID & Password" button will automatically fill in a WWW Form. Alternatively, the user can click the Clipboard icon to copy password data to the Clipboard.
