I am using this password saver on my Ubuntu machine and it is one of the best for Linux. It's still tedious compared to Roboform on Windows. But for Linux it's pretty darned good.

Plenty of updates. Check change log on site. Best of its kind.

Good is just getting better! Now it have password generator on the Manage menu, which saves me some time. Yes, i know that i can create new entry, generate pass without saving entry, but this new feature is plainly convinient. Excellent program

And it's going on 10 years old without a single gui update. I'll stick with psafe. It allows me to leave my safe open and actually logs me in without having to travel back in time.

I tested this with a login security test from http://www.info-svc.com/news/2008/12-12/. There was only one point where I actually used the autologin feature. The rest of the time I was using the copy password to clip... , then closing psafe before doing next step. Even though all logins were saved in psafe (7 total), I always stated that it neither asked to save nor did it login automatically at ANY point (as it does neither to begin with). Running opera 10 beta with it's own pass mgr off, redirect off, & send referrer off, fraud protect on, & cookies for original only on, I passed 13 of the 21 'tests'. 32 steps in all. This is way better than opera, ff, ie, safari, chrome, etc's built-in mgr's. Roboform is also totally insecure.
Try the test at the end of the dialog (lnk)
Granted, bank websites or other potentially damaging server logins are what is at stake. Twiiter's and generally insecure email acct's, forum's etc are not all that important in the grand scheme, imho.
As well, logins-ins such as this one: http://web.feedreader.com/ do not work with opera's pass mgr. I HAVE to use psafe.
I believe psafe does clear clip. I know it does when it minimizes or closes. Drag & drop?? Psafe never displays details by default (Ditto NEVER shows psafe data). Nothing to grab whatsoever.
I have ~68 logins and it uses 2048 KB idle.

Excellent password manager, small, portable and regular updates. I much prefer KeePass since it has the option to clear the clipboard immediately upon copying/pasting and allows you to drag username/password/notes fields with the mouse directly to the input fields of your login prompts (a shortcut for cut-and-paste) which does NOT use the clipboard. Yes, Keepass also has auto-type as does Password Safe.

Anomoly: KeePass 2.x is unfortunately written in .NET which accounts for it being a memory hog. Use the 1.x versions (1.6 just released Jun-6-2009) which uses 6MB in memory. Password Safe consumes 4MB.

Regardless of which one you choose definitely use a password manager because using the same password for multiple site is just plain DUMB.

Don't confuse this opensource Password Safe with the closed, proprietary Password Safe, also listed in FileForum, and which, "coincidentally", is also at version 3.12

Keepass has a portable ed. but it uses over twice the memory on my pc. PSafe auto-alphabetizes, auto-types with a doubleclick and will then auto-minimize. You are not stuck looking at the groups as in keepass either.

simpler than KeePass and just as functional. Nice piece of work.
