4UOnly is a free application, courtesy of Dillobits Software, to help you avoid identity theft by securing your accounts and passwords.
What good is a password list manager that secures your secret passwords using a master password and then forces you to enter it each time you want to access your password list?
4UOnly is a password manager for Microsoft WindowsTM 98/Me/NT4/2000/XP and Server 2003 with a unique feature that saves you time while promoting good security: No longer are you required to enter your master decryption password each time you need to access your password list.
A built-in password generator is included to further enhance your security. Convenient automatic launching of login web pages is also provided to reduce your login time.
In this era of heightened concern for security, we recommend that you use a unique password for each of your various accounts. It is also important that you frequently change your passwords in order to limit exposure should one be discovered. To track these numerous and ever changing account and passwords, password list management programs are often used.
The main drawback of most of these programs is that they use a master encryption password to protect your list of accounts and passwords from disclosure. It then becomes very tedious to specify this password each time you wish to access your password list so there is often a tendency to choose weak passwords since they are easily remembered. Furthermore, constant and repeated use of the master password increases the risk of discovery.
4Uonly overcomes this problem by capitalizing on the knowledge that your identity was authenticated when you logged in to Windows. It uses your own unique Windows security fingerprint to encrypt and decrypt your password crypt file. Your password list can only be viewed without providing a master password when you are logged in to the Windows account that was in use when the list was last saved.
You are strongly encouraged to provide a master password when you first create the password file, so that you can still access the file should the necessary Windows account become unavailable.
