    STRIP from zetetic.net is my freeware choice

    And AFAIR Palm version of SplashID (i.e. without deskop part) is free too.

    I just started looking into these programs this week, so this thread is very timely.

    I have heard through the years that the Palm component of SplashID is free. So I downloaded and installed it. Upon starting the program, it wanted a registration ID, and said it wouldn't continue working past 30 days.

    Now, I'm almost certain that the palm version of SplashID *was* free during some sort of promotion, and if anyone has links or info, it would be appreciated. If you aren't using the desktop component, however, I think 350kb for a password protector is a little heavy on the memory requirement.

    I did a forum search last week and found a reference to YAPS (Yet Another Password Store), a freeware program that uses 256 bit blowfish encryption. There is a windows component that lets one interact with the password file, but it costs $9. I always have my PDA with me, so I don't need a desktop component.

    The interface is a tad basic, but the program is very stable, and only 55kb or so. It is sort of "free-form" in its field usage: there's Name, Location, User ID, Password, Info, and a Notes screen for each entry. You can use Palm Categories to segregate things (I have Bank/Card Accounts, Websites, MyWebsites, and Misc - for things like padlock combinations) if you have a jillion entries. You can find it at: http://www.msbsoftware.ch/yaps.html

    In general, if a program like this doesn't talk about what encryption it uses, and if that encryption isn't some industry standard system, then I would stay away from it. History is littered with stories of home-grown encryption systems that were cracked far easier than their inventors ever thought possible.

    Hope this helps. Keep the recommendations coming - perhaps we can find the best password storage program between the lot of us.

    Please stop saying things like this without providing a link that says it is so. The Splash website does NOT say this anywhere that I can find, and I looked for a long time yesterday. I hope I just overlooked something.
