pwSafe can generate new passwords for you, with whatever criteria the site in question requires.
In the world of password-management applications, the program that saves you time gets the glory. pwSafe serves as a secure repository for your various passwords. You can enter individual URLs with the site’s username and password, and optionally sort them into categories, like Finances or Social Networking. When you want to log on, select an entry and click the Open button. pwSafe will open the site in your browser and load the password in your clipboard—you just enter your username and paste in the password.
This is much more secure than jotting down lists of passwords in an unencrypted text file somewhere on your hard drive, and since you don’t need to keep your passwords memorized, you can let pwSafe generate strong passwords for you. Even better, pwSafe uses iCloud to sync your data across Macs or to the universal iPhone/iPad app.
The bottom line. 1Password is the gold standard, but it’s also $49.99 for Mac and $17.99 for iOS. At $5.99 for Mac and $2.99 for iOS, pwSafe is worth a look for increased security without a big buy-in
64-bit processor, OS X 10.7 or later
Excellent functionality and stability. App serves all its core functions and hooks in beautifully with iCloud for use on other Macs and iOS devices. Great feature set for the price.
Program’s functionality/means of operation are a little vague at first. Introductory tutorial video would be a welcome addition.
