[6:00 AM] Password Management App Adds Keychain Support
by Staff

Alco Blom has updated Web Confidential to version 1.3.2. The new version of the password protection and encryption software is now fully compatible with the 0S 9 Keychain feature. According to Mr. Blom:

Now there is a software program to manage passwords and the like: it is called Web Confidential. It uses an intuitive, easy-to-use cardfile metaphor which will enable even novice users to get up to speed in no time. Power users will find a large number of options to enable them to configure Web Confidential to meet their specific needs.

If you are an enthusiastic Web surfer, you will be especially impressed at the tight integration Web Confidential offers with your favorite Internet applications, such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Web Confidential for Macintosh takes full advantage of the Mac operating system's outstanding facilities, such as Interprogram Communication (AppleScript) and Shared Menus, to make Web Confidential work seamlessly with these programs.

Web Confidential has been updated to 1.3.2 to fully support the new Keychain Manager of Mac OS 9. Web Confidential is a password organizer using industrial-strength encryption (using keys of up to 448 bits in length).

Web Confidential is available for US$20. You can find more information at the Web Confidential web site.

The Mac Observer Spin: Why are so many developers being so slow to integrate Keychain support? Netscape and Internet Explorer should both have this powerful feature added to them. Kudos to Mr. Blom for this update.
