How many passwords and user names do you have to keep track of? Chances are that the answer is "lots." It was bad enough when you only needed a password to access your network or shell account; now many websites want passwords too. Most people resort to keeping a written list of passwords (unsafe) or using the same password on many systems (very unsafe). Now, with Password Guard, you can keep a master list of passwords securely encrypted on your computer. A single Master Key unlocks them all.
Password Guard allows you to have any number of different password databases. For example, you can store your website passwords in one, your Unix account passwords in another, etc. Don't forget to backup your various databases often. If you wish to have only one database, no problem. Password Guard will take care of all the detail for you and you don't need to bother with any of the file handling commands.
