Publisher description for P-Lock
P-Lock is a simple password manager for Windows. It does the basic things you would expect from a password manager: Generate Passwords, copy them to the clipboard, and encrypt them with a Master Password. It also has a particularly useful feature which I couldn't find in any other free password management software: the ability to copy itself and its password database to a removable drive, so that passwords can be easily taken to another machine and used there. Most other tools have a method to install themselves on a removable drive and operate from there (P-Lock has an option to do this as well), but I wanted my primary password database on my main computer so that it could be more easily backed up and less prone to being lost. The Default setting when syncing to a removable drive in P-Lock is to create a read-only "slave" copy of the passwords. P-Lock will also write a perl script to the removable drive which allows you to recover passwords in the event that you do not have access to a Windows box. P-Lock is a personal project of mine to serve a personal need. I'm happy to share it with others, but my primary Motivation for adding features would be if they help me do something I want to do. It's possible this may change in the future, but you are welcome in the mean time to submit a patch or to try your luck with requesting a feature anyway.
