Password Corral is a powerful password manager that provides an easy-to-use interface and strong encryption algorithms.
The advantages of being portable
Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to store and manage passwords on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.
While most similar applications sport complex and sometimes difficult to use features, Password Corral offers a user-friendlier approach that perfectly mixes up with the strong encryption it integrates.
Support for different encryption algorithms and master password
Password Corral offers 256-bit Blowfish and 128-bit Diamond2 encryption, which should be enough to protect your sensitive data, so nobody can access your passwords without knowing the master password first.
Hide passwords from the main window
But what may come in handy to many users is the way Password Corral manages to handle all passwords. The master password is the only thing you need to protect your very own database of passwords which can be also hidden in the main window and thus add a new security layer to the application.
Add info about your passwords and generate random ones
A typical password entry can also comprise information about the username, description, URL and email, but also comments and an expiration date. Plus, Password Corral boasts a password generator to quickly create a password of up to 20 characters, which can be anything from letters, numbers or symbols.
The password generator can be configured from the app's “Options” screen, so it can create passwords comprising numbers only, letters only, numbers and letters, numbers, letters and special characters. Plus, you can enable the mixed case option and define password length.
The “Security” tab lets you enable the program to clear clipboard contents on exit and display password expiration dialog on startup.
Overall, Password Corral is a very handy password manager that is addressed to all types of users out there. And with a few improvements in some key areas, it could become a five-star product.
