    Is it better than LASTPASS Software…………????

    tell me….

  • Thomas Lake

    I wish I could use copy and paste on the info in PassBox without going into edit mode.

  • http://www.facebook.com/shiwangi.peswani Shiwangi Peswani

    It is a very easy and useful freeware Lavish..started using and liked it and also wrote a review on my blog :)

  • NK Murarka

    Still……nobody said its comparison with LASTPASS……….?????

  • Lavish

    Hi NK
    that really depends upon you whether you want to go for Lastpass or you like PassBox, for reference you can see the screenshots or you can download it. PassBox is tiny and installs and uninstalls easily.

  • Ed

    Good utility but …….. where is the backup option?

  • Ed

    A very good password keeper / generator, only one problem ……. where is the backup option? Seems kinda usless to use a utility such as this, if your HD crashes and you do not have a clone or image then all that information is gone, so what is the sense? Something to think about for future versions

  • Rasbastas

    I agree with Ed. Without a way to back up the database your screwed if you lose your HD.

  • Ed

    Looks like good software just got better! One thing though Lavish, your using screencaps of V1.0 …. LOL

  • http://www.thewindowsclub.com Anand Khanse

    I am to blame for that. I just uploaded the new files. Will update new screen shots soonest :)

  • Ed

    Thanks Anand, just downloaded and am playing with the portable version. Looks as though this is going to be my traveling password keeper …… nice job!

  • medusa

    I have changed my os & reinstalled passbox but on entering my password passbox is empty have i lost all my passwords ? can i recover them?

  • Lavish Thakkar

    Did you create a backup before reinstalling the software?

  • medusa

    a backup can’t be created from within your program can it?
    would be good if it could be

  • http://www.thewindowsclub.com Anand Khanse

    Passbox v2.0 includes the ability to backup. Passbox v2.0 can backup and restore data.

  • Guest

    I installed 2.0. Found that the only database that works is ‘Default’. Any other named db will not save any entries!

  • Lavish Thakkar

    Hi, please try to reinstall the application and check if the problem exists, if it still does, please send me a Screenshot (thewindowsclub at hotmail dot com) so that I can possibly look into the error! Thanks!

  • Mark Gorman

    Sorry to say, but I can’t get this thing to work, period. The “Add New” tab shown on above screenshot does not appear AT ALL, and I receive continual “unhandled exception” errors. Tried reinstalling to no avail. How to uninstall this useless junk?

  • Lavish Thakkar

    Please try re-installing! If you want to uninstall, you can do it normally from control panel!
