|| Password Wizard
Runs on 10.12.2+
Password Wizard is a secure (AES-256 encryption) password manager that allows you to save user IDs, passwords and other sensitive information (such as social security numbers), optionally associate them with website URLs, and facilitate logging into websites.
Websites are constantly improving their security and, frankly, trying to defeat automatic user ID and password entry functions built into browsers. Therefore Password Wizard supports many options for user ID and password entry.
Password Wizard incorporates several advanced features not commonly found in other password managers, including:
- the ability to specify two-part user IDs that must be entered into two fields on the web page,
- the ability to automatically enter the password on a different page than the User ID,
- support for passwords that must be entered by clicking on the screen (e.g. with an on-screen numeric pad), and
- the ability to associate a different browser with each website (if the site works properly only with a particular browser).
- Also, Password Wizard is designed to use files that are synchronized across different machines (for example via DropBox).
Password Wizard runs on Mac Os 10.12+.
It is required that the keyboard shortcut on your system to paste is Command-V, the common default.
Frequently Asked Questions
- When I try to run the program the system says it is from an unauthorized developer. How can I run the application? After you have moved it to the Applications folder, right-click or control-click it and choose "Open" from the menu that pops up. Then answer the question saying you want to run the application. You need to do this only once.
- Will Password Wizard use my saved preferences and files from PW Master? Yes.
- Why aren't my userids and passwords pasting? If you are running on 10.14 or later, you must re-authorize Password Wizard to control your computer when installing or after upgrading it. In System Preferences->Security & Privacy-> Accessibility you should see Password Wizard shown. Even if it is checked, because of an apparently unfixable Apple bug, you must UNCHECK it and then CHECK it again. You will have to click on the lock icon and enter your password before doing so. If for some reason Password Wizard does not appear there, you will need to click the plus sign and add Password Wizard, which should be in your Applications folder.
- Where is Help available? Choose "Password Wizard Help" or "Quick Reference" under the "Help" menu . If you need to contact the author to report a bug or ask for help, please do so only by using the "Email The Author" function under the "Password Wizard" menu. This will provide me with debugging info that allows me to better answer your question.
