autoID Password Manager uses 448 bit encryption and can type login information for you automatically. Basic auto-complete is also provided. autoID can be used to track names, passwords, credit cards, software serial numbers and confidential notes in an encrypted form. The password you assign to a file is the only key to retrieving its contents back. If you forget the password to a file, you might as well forget you ever had the file. There is no way to get it back.

In exchange for remembering one password, autoID will keep track of your important notes and passwords and it can even enter them for you automatically when you visit more...

There is a problem which is a bug in Leopard that makes autoID think that it has not been registered and works in trial mode for 15 days. Someone created a small installer package that fixes the problem and makes autoID work again (and other eSellerate based programs).

The package, which came from https://spaces.umbc.edu/display/CIG/Web-based+VPN+on+Mac+OS+X+Leopard

After running that installer you can run autoID again with no problems. Thank you to Steve Smith for finding this and thank you for your patience.

P.S. If you also have Safari Extender we are working on the issues as Safari changed a lot in the Leopard version, note that you still need the fix enclosed to make the eSellerate libraries work.

Safari Extender does not seem to do anything under Leopard OS X 10.5, and Tiger 10.4.11 We are working on it, we could not support beta versions of Safari and we had to wait until the final version was available. Safari Extender is a very complicated piece of software and Safari has changed substantially so we need time to do things right. The features in Safari Extender may change for the Leopard compatible release.

Tried autoID, like the concept and the program seems to work fine, but there is a major annoyance:

After restart there are Recovered Files in Trash. I've seen the same problem with other programs that use the eSellerate engine. This is an old problem that was fixed long time ago by eSellerate and should not appear in autoID.

The beaty of autoID is that once you set a web page (autoid grabs the web link automatically) you only need to press option-command-/ and your id and password are entered in the web page. For sites that require a third field, a notes entry is used for it.

autoID keeps your data secret and the file can be moved around. You can have multiple macs and use a copy of the file in them without having to re-train safari or any other browser.

If you ever need to re-install a system or Safari, you don't loose your data. When you start having 30+ passwords for web sites, autoID becomes a life saver.

For anyone that doesn't know;

Safari can store passwords/logins and other form fields for you. It stores them in the MacOS X keychain, so you can be sure they're nice and secure.

FireFox has a password manager but without knowing if it stores the passwords in the OSX keychain or uses its own thing, I don't trust it.

Either way, check your browser's preferences. Form auto-fill and password management are pretty standard these days. No need for after-market apps.

WAAAY TOO Complicated! Or should I say time consuming...

In the time it takes to activate a site in auto id, and the amount of clicks and entering the encripted password(s), I can just simply type the damn password!

Pretty useless...

I too have found this difficult to use and the documentation limited. There must be something more user friendly out there......

if you want a good passsword manger look for auscomp fort knox it has a password locker loads of documentation and a great auto login you can load the program program in a name of the item the user name and the password and then the web site the save then ever time you want to go to that site you can click on it and it opens up I.E. then logs you in or you can go to the site and then click on it it also has auto copy paste system


Ok, I might becoming blind with age, but as far as I can see fort knox is a windows app.
If so, dear JG, it is like handing me a poetry book in Japanese. A fine language, but I cant read it.


And although they support Linux OS,
their talking-FAQ doesn't open in Firefox!

I switched to MAC not long ago and was looking for something like ROBOFORM for PC, and from description this soft doesnt come close to roboform functionality that does everything for you. it creates passcards that you click and it takes you and logs you in the website, dont need to type the web address and then commant+control or any of those complicated crap. Does anyone know compatible soft?
