Clipperz – Password Security & Much More
Posted by cotojo on June 11, 2007
Clipperz can be used to store and freely organize any kind of confidential textual information, such as passwords, confidential notes, burglar alarm codes, credit and debit card details, PINs, software keys, and so on.
Clipperz is free and completely anonymous.
Nothing to install. Nothing to backup.
Clipperz lets you submit confidential information into your browser, but your data are locally encrypted by the browser itself before being uploaded.
The key for the encryption process is a passphrase known only to you. Clipperz simply hosts your sensitive data in encrypted form and could never actually access the data in its plain form.
To quickly grasp features and benefits of Clipperz, please refer to these resources:
1. A video tutorial to learn how to access your web services without typing username and password
2. An introduction to “Clipperz Compact”, the edition for the Firefox sidebar
3. Discover the “offline copy”, a read-only version to be used without Internet connection (and maybe moved on USB drive)
For any further information about features and security
What are the system requirements?
To date, you only need any recent version of a Internet Explorer, Opera or any Mozilla-based browser, such as Firefox. Support for other browsers is coming soon as well.
It is recommended that you use a reasonably powerful computer, and a fast Internet connection, because that will make it more fun.
IE7 needs a custom procedure to install the bookmarklet Instead of dragging it, you should right-click on the link, and choose the “Add to favorites …” menu item. After selecting “Add to favorites …” (and having dismissed a warning message), a dialog appears where you have the option to choose where to add the bookmarklet:
Favorites, Links, etc…
Beware that IE7 comes with most panels hidden, so you may need to make them visible using the contextual menu on the browser toolbar, or clicking on the “star” button to make the favorites panel visible.
Then when you open an account that you need to log into, go to the account and enter your details then go to the Favourites Menu and click on the Clipperz bookmarklet that you have installed, then simple copy the code and enter it into a new card in your Clipperz account.
There is an excellent Forum and Discussion group which will assist with any problems that you may have.
I suggest that you go to http://www.clipperz.com and watch the video. It is an amazing program where all of your passwords are fully encrypted and saved, and you need never remember another password.
This program is simplicity in itself, have a look and give it a try.
As with all the safety and security items that I look at it is free. So what have you got to lose?
