Does anyone have any recommendations for a secure program to store sensitive
and variable type data? Things like PIN numbers, bank account details which
can have PIN numbers and other password data (internet banking), web site
passwords (some have account numbers too).

I used a program on the Psion machine called Safeplace which was good and
flexible, I've looked at passwording a zip file but it's not too hard to
crack the password, but then you need to start opening different filetypes
etc. A nice flexible password protected program would be far better.

Thanks for all suggestions.

eWallet, by Illium Software. Go for the deluxe version that allows editing
from your desktop-- it's worth it.

Hi Alan
I use Passman, which is freeware and seems fine to me.

I personally like the newly released Pocket PC version of roboform. My
main reason for using this over the other versions is because of the way
it integrates with Internet Explorer and allows me to use it to
automatically fill out forms on the PC. I can then carry all of my
passwords and secure data with me on the Pocket Pc.

It seems a bit expensive, but there's a trial so I'll give it a go.
Thanks

Thanks, that is one I'd found and have tried a little. Unfortunately the
fields aren't very configurable, it's good for what it is, but not quite
enough.

This looks interesting, but I'd really prefer data entry/editing on the ppc
rather than being reliant on a PC.
Thanks for the suggestion, I will give it a try.
