LazLock (password manager)

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

LazLock (password manager)

#1 Post by Midas » Wed May 17, 2017 10:37 am

LazLock (https://www.cpunk-security.com/lazlock2.html) looks interesting, not least because it's multi-platform FOSS (Linux and Windows, ATM), claims portability, and it's always good to have worthy alternatives in the area -- should more established names like KeePass become unavailable all of a sudden... :P

LazLock includes a password generator which allows you to create more secure passwords. A plain text version of your data is never written to disk, all decryption is done in memory. LazLock is portable, no installation is required, so it can be run from a USB drive.

LazLock latest release (currently v2.6) can be downloaded from https://sourceforge.net/projects/lazlock/files/2.6/.

Good suggestion. I've been dragging my feet on a password manager for a while now, but my account/password list is getting way out of control so this might become necessary.

I tested LazLock version 2.6- it seems portable and stealth- no settings are saved, just the database file- lazlock.vault in LLdata sub-folder inside program folder.

LazLock - the built-in password generator:

Note
It's built with the Free Pascal compiler and the Lazarus IDE.
For me the program icon is cute.
I have contacted the developer, Christopher Hawkins, with several suggestion for the future development of LazLock.

KeePass becoming unavailable- this is not very probable- an open source program is hard to get obliterated, even TrueCrypt still lives.

  • TrueCrypt is precisely the example I had in mind when I wrote that... :|
