The first version of MyPadlock was created in 2009 for personal use to help keep passwords safe for myself, my friends and my family. Other password managers exist but were surprisingly overly complicated. For these reasons, I set out to create simplest password manager possible without making compromises in security. It was immediately apparent that others would benefit from this effort and so the decision was made to share these efforts with the rest of the world.
MyPadlock is a simple idea and one we think will catch on by making the software completely free. Someday, if enough people like it and tell their friends about it, maybe it will evolve to a point that will justify building better versions that can be charged for to help offset the costs of development. But for now, MyPadlock is entirely free. Use it all you want, tell your friends, and most importantly, protect your passwords!
It cannot be stressed enough just how important it is to properly protect your passwords, AND, just how easy it is to be unsafe. Identity theft is more prevalent every year and at the same time computer users are putting more and more of their personal data online. If you're like most people, you probably have dozens of passwords and will create dozens more in the next year. Unfortunately, that means you probably are also storing those passwords in a text file or Word Document on your hard drive or you're reusing your passwords or variations of them. THIS IS NOT SAFE!!! You could have a virus on your machine or someone could steal your computer, and along with it, all your passwords. Access to your bank account, retirement plan, and email could all be exposed and available for the hacker to do his or her worst with. Don't be a statistic, get smart and protect your electronic information by protecting your passwords.
