- Why do you need a password manager?
For security reasons, it is a good idea to create different passwords.
This will insure that if one of your logins is discovered, that all
of your other logins are still safe. It is also good to have different
email accounts set up that you use to register with different websites.
For example, you could create a games email account, a personal email
account, a business email account, etc. so that you don't get junk mail
in your personal email account. SDM is here to help you manage all of
your accounts and passwords so that tracking them and keeping them safe
is made easy.
- How much does this product cost?
Nothing. It is FREE. However, donations

- How secure is it?
We are using Sun's Java Cryptography Extension (JCE). The current encryption
algorithm are DES and AES. We are currently using a 1024
bit key which should be more than enough. You can choose
from a list of algorithms that we could use to help keep
your data secure.
- What will Secure Data Manager do for me?
SDM will lock your secure information safely on your machine, provide
quick and easy access to it, and in the future, possibly allow you to
access your own data remotely. The text files you may keep them in now
are just not good enough.
- Why should I use this application over another
It is very secure, you can verify that the application is not doing
anything that is shouldn't by looking at the source code or trusting
that the other developers have looked at the source code. Build the
source yourself and verify that no one but you is seeing your secured
data. Besides, this password manager is FREE!

Easy, but not yet single-click install. See the Downloads
