From Clipperz to Password Safe

Publisert lørdag 21 mai 2011 klokka 00:49

As everyone else I have a lot of accounts on the web, and I know that I shouldn't use the same password everywhere. Seriously, don't do it. So, some years ago I started using password managers. I didn't select one of the many desktop applications - mostly because it would have been hard to keep the password database files in sync between all my computers. I selected Passpack - one of the better online password managers. Because it didn't support HTTP Basic Auth, which I had to use a lot, I switched to Clipperz - another great online password managers.

I have used Clipperz until today - more or less happily. Today I switched to Password Safe - a desktop password manager. I know, moving from the cloud to the desktop is kind of against the trend. However, the reasons I did it now are:

  • Easy syncing with Dropbox - even to my phone using the Android Dropbox App.
  • The Android Password Safe App is much easier to use than the mobile version of the Clipperz website.

So you could still say I'm using the cloud, but I have switch from the browser to native programs.
