    Does anyone know of any freeware password storing software with a desktop client as well?

    thanks!

    Desktop client for what OS?

    I believe STRIP has a Windows and Linux desktop applications that are developed by third parties.

    As for Mac OS, I'm unaware of any freeware desktop clients.

    There are a few shareware ones for Macs, but I didn't find any of them that were really that usable. I ended up using Cryptinfo, which doesn't have a desktop client.

    Does anybody know who makes the Windows desktop application?

    I have been using STRIP for about 9 months and would like to have a desktop version as well, especially if it syncs data with the handheld version!

    I looked at Zetetic's website but didn't find any info ...

    One of the reasons I like STRIP is the fact that it is open source. Also, everyone in our office uses it, so we can easily beam info back & forth.

    Thanks for the pointer though.

    Also in the "not free but good" category: Secret!. I've been using it for over a year, and am very happy with it.

    It has a less structured interface than some (more like "encoded notepad"), but I've found that to be a help rather than a hinderance -- I can throw all sorts of stuff in, and it makes it easier to browse.

    Besides the interface, I like that they're open about their security encryption algorithm -- they're not open source, but they're not using their own proprietary algorithm.

    And they have a Windows desktop version -- which I quickly discovered was essential for my purposes.

    But... they're pricey, particularly if you get the Windows desktop edition. However, I use both at least once a day, so it's worth it to me -- both for utility, and for peace-of-mind.
