Access Manager
Review date:November 4, 2004
Version reviewed:2.0.54
NOTE: the review only pertains to the version/date mentioned above. Subsequent versions could be quite different from the reviewed version.

Access Manager is a secure password storage manager that keeps all passwords together.

It features strong "dual" encryption, stores an unlimited number of passwords, includes a password generator, can include clickable notes (e-mail & Web addresses), passwords can be imported from CSV & XML files, you can print a list of all passwords, and more.

One of the best password storage managers we have seen, Access Manager makes the whole process of keeping track of your many passwords simple – but very secure. It uses a dual encryption method that includes both 'Blowfish' and 'Rijndael', each with 256 bits.

The free version (free only for non-commercial use) lacks a few bells and whistles of the Pro version, like it cannot export password lists, it cannot be run from a USB flash drive, and it cannot backup your data to another location, but the list of features it does offer is huge, and it is an easy way of keeping track of all those passwords and access codes.

One of the features we really liked was the note section where you can add notes (no size limit) with clickable Web addresses. Of course it includes a search function, and lots more besides.

Access Manager is a powerful yet easy to use tool that virtually every PC user will find invaluable.

We consider this a "must have" utility.

Get it!

Note: we have been advised that this program is not suitable for Windows 95.
