Store Your Passwords Securely

Every online service including shopping, banking, and news requires an account and password to be established for access. Learn how to avoid having to remember all the different combinations of IDs and passwords.

One of the newest features added to the latest handheld operating system [Hack #20] is Password Keeper. You can see its icon, a vault, in Figure 5-9.

Set Up the Password Keeper Password

Password Keeper provides a secure means to store various information such as IDs, passwords, and PINs using AES encryption technology. You can also use it to generate random passwords or to copy a password to the clipboard, which you can later paste when accessing an application through the BlackBerry Browser. When you open Password Keeper for the first time, you are prompted for a password and must reenter it to confirm. The password screen displayed is shown in Figure 5-10. Once you have typed the password, click OK to continue. Password Keeper is ready to use!
