Hello. This is my first post about this great product. I just upgraded to
v3.27 from an older version. I deploy this to a number of users, and I see
several improvements that will make it much easier to convince them it is
worth the effort to use (always the most difficult task when it comes to users
and good security practices). In fact, I believe that I can now make a
plausible case that it is easier to use PWSafe than to type in even trivial pw
manually. I really like the virtual keyboard on the windoze version. One of
the reasons that I upgraded my personal copy was a recent trojan keylogger
warning from my AV. That turned out to be an apparent false positive, but it
got my attention, so I noticed the vkb in 3.27 immediately. If fact, I like it
so well I need to ask how difficult it would be to expand it's availability
from only the master password dialog to the individual password maintenance
dialog itself. It strikes me that while using PWSafe to furnish authentication
to sites and applications by means of the clipboard is a fairly good keylogger
preventative, as long as that information must be initially entered into the
individual pw record via the keyboard, some unnecessary vulnerability remains.
While this is a feature that I could live without if it was difficult to add,
if it is not, it would seem like a worthwhile enhancement.
Thanks for your kind words - always nice to hear from a satisfied user.
As to the virtual keyboard, a couple of points:
1, The Generate button in the Entry dialog box puts a password in the field
without going through the keyboard.
