Store passwords in menu bar.

Overview

PasswordMenu is a simple but powerful application that allows you to store all your passwords securely in the menu bar. This way your most important passwords are always just one click away. Just select any item from the list, enter the master password, and the password is copied to your clipboard! Don't worry about spying eyes, there are no passwords stored in the menu bar, only the names that refer to the passwords. On top of that the menu is password protected with your OS X admin password. Still unsure? Try it and you will not want to miss it anymore.

What's new in PasswordMenu

Version 2.5.1: Rearranged the edit menu: The edit menu is now simplified - users now have the option to quit directly, launch the Passwordmenu extension, or save the the changes and launch the Passwordmenu extension.

Do the developers check this page? If they don't, they should. If they do, they blew it by ignoring my earlier comment. Bummer.

Am I missing something? Why not use KeyChain - it sits in the menu bar. All my apps, take passwords from Keychain, and Safari auto-fills them for each website. No Clipboard needed.

In my opinion, having a password helper/reminder in the menu bar is a good idea. Having it depend on the admin password is also a good idea. Having it ask for this admin password every time you need to access one of your passwords is, also a good idea (I mean, these are supposed to be SECRET, you know!). But I find it odd that it puts the password you're looking for on the clipboard, where it stays for all to see; one could easily forget that the password data is there -- you have to use it, then copy something else to the clipboard to get rid of it, which seems like a silly extra step. I can see why people would want to paste passwords, but it's important to note that not all sites and software permit this; some require you to type it in. So, I think it would be better to include a preference item for just showing the passwords rather than putting them on the clibboard. Also, I'm not crazy about the hobbled unregistered version of this shareware.

Couple things I noticed: It still trys to authenticate as "unknown" The menu icon needs to have a transparent background. Fix the error message when authentication fails. -Tim

Right now I use CiphSafe, I unlock it when I start to work and relock it when I'm done. Menubar support and some sort of network sync would be nice. I'll check out Password Wallet tho, thanks.

Tim, try Password Wallet from Selznick Software. There is only one *.wallet file to move from Mac to Mac that functions independent of the master Admin password. I also would NOT have a list of your most treasured data open 'all the time' ... re-entering a master password is a small price to pay for security....

Just my 2 yen, but I find the concept of having a list of username/passwords (accessable or not) in the menu bar to be HIGHLY unsecure. I like Password Wallet's security model to be MUCH better. It follows the basic 'vault' model.. untill you enter your password, you don't get ANYTHING. Also, I don't like the 'feature' of having this tied to the keychain or your admin password. This is an -option- in Password Wallet, and one that they recommend against (and rightly so!).
