Password Gorilla helps you manage your logins, storing all your user names and passwords along with login information and other notes. To log in to a service or Web site, the program copies your user name and password to the clipboard to paste into your Web browser or other application.

The program includes an integrated random password generator for one-time passwords, tunable to various services’ policies. Data is encrypted with a single "master" password.

Cross-platform (Linux, Mac, iOS, Android). Alternatively, Password Gorilla Portable updates paths for recently used databases.

Any chance someone is working on an Offline app for ChromeOS? Been using Password Gorilla for years and appreciate the development community for the open source and cross-platform work so far. A big thank you!

Both download links don't work because they're missing a 3 after the 6. Here are the corrected links.

It does create a config file in the application folder but it looks like one need to run Password Gorilla with the "--rc configfile" arguments every single time. Is that correct?

Just found out that Gorilla has a commandline option:
--rc configfile : Use as configuration file (not the Registry)
so no need for a wrapper batch file after all, and this makes Gorilla truly portable.

In my batch file above, use the following command instead to allow for the path containing spaces:
start "" "%~dp0gorilla.exe"

Also, Gorilla v1.5.x is truly open source and cross-platform: it comes with static builds for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X (and Android is promised too), so you can use the same password databases wherever you want. (Tcl/Tk no longer needs to be installed on a system separately.) Gorilla maybe lacks some of the graphical bells and whistles of alternative Windows programs, but the cross-platform features above are bigger deals for some of us!

With Gorilla v1.5.x, you can easily make it portable by fooling it about where to store the .gorillarc file. Just create a wrapper script such as the following, which respecifies the HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH environment variables for the duration of the script (assuming gorilla.exe is within the folder x:\apps\gorilla):
@echo off
:: gorilla.bat - Portable wrapper for Gorilla
set HOMEDRIVE=%~d0
set HOMEPATH=\apps\gorilla
start %~dp0gorilla.exe
