I don't know about you, but I've got about a million different passwords and usernames floating around in my head and often I can't access the part of the brain that tells me which one goes with which thing I need to access.

It's getting so bad that I was thinking of hiring a personal secretary (a top secret one who I will shoot if she ever opens her mouth, of course) to take care of all my passwords.

Oh, hang on, I don't need to because here comes Pocket Cryptex into my phone.

This information manager contains all the necessary functions to record and categorise your usernames and passwords.

It's pretty straightforward to use the program. All you need to do to create a new account is open a register and fill in the relevant fields.

Each record can include a user's password, and you can select a group or category, set a brief description and add additional information. Obviously, you don't want anyone looking accessing all your passwords because that would be an absolute disaster.

Thankfully, Pocket Crytex is password-protected itself (although I'm not sure how I'm supposed to remember this one). It seems a bit of a rudimentary way of securing all your passwords and I'm not sure it's a totally foolproof method of safeguarding all this personal data.

Nevertheless, Pocket Cryptex stopped me from constantly thinking about passwords on my bus journies, by storing all this data in one place so I never have to remember what they are.

Cryptex is a password manager. It stores your passwords, your web registrations and associated information in a database (a file) protected by a single password.

Cryptex is available in two versions: a regular PC version and a version that runs on the Pocket PC platform. Both versions use a separate password file but the PC version's built-in synchronization mechanism allows the password databases to be synchronized.
