[11:00 AM] Web Confidential Beta For Palm Released
by Staff

Update: Please note that Alco Blom's Web server is down and can not be accessed at this time.

Macintosh developer Alco Blom and Palm OS developer Rene Laterveer announced the beta releases of Web Confidential 2.0b2 for Mac and the introduction of Web Confidential for Palm 1.0b2.

Web Confidential for Palm is supplied with a Macintosh Conduit, which synchronizes data between Macintosh and Palm. It is an intuitive, easy-to-use program for managing user IDs, passwords, registration numbers, and the like. It is currently the only password manager which is able to HotSync with a Palm device using a Macintosh Conduit. According to the company:

While Web Confidential is suitable for a wide variety of personal data, from credit card numbers to serial numbers, Alco Blom designed Web Confidential particularly for the World Wide Web. Increasing numbers of Web sites maintain some form of user registration, you may not realize it, but in the course of time you may register at a couple of dozen sites.

Web Confidential allows Web surfers to store URLs, user IDs, and passwords in one secure location. Web Confidential can automate the process of logging into a password-secured Web page by automatically passing URL, user ID, and password to your Web browser.

For opening pages containing personal account information at commercial sites, Web Confidential allows you to automatically fill in WWW Forms with user ID and password fields.

To ensure the personal information stored in Web Confidential remains confidential, the program's password files can be encrypted using state-of-the-art encryption technology.

Web Confidential has been released as shareware. After a trial period of thirty days, users are encouraged to register the program for US$20.

You can find more information on the product at the company's web site.
