Kaspersky Password Manager 9
Securely store passwords, user names and more

Keeping track of all your online passwords can be a difficult task. And while browsers try to help, the results are usually less than impressive. They'll often fail to enter passwords for you or lose your entire password database for no apparent reason. And they make little effort to conceal your details. Anyone with access to your PC, and the right software, for instance, can view all your IE passwords in seconds.

Kaspersky Password Manager improves on this situation in several ways. It stores all your usernames, passwords and other form-related in an encrypted central database, for example - no-one's gaining access unless they know the password. Alternatively, you can prevent access unless a particular USB or Bluetooth device is connected to the system (your mobile phone, maybe).

When you visit websites or use applications that need login information, then Kaspersky Password Manager will reliably enter the username, password and other data for you. Which means you don't need to remember the password for every site you use. Or, worse still, use the same password for all of them. Which seems like a great idea until one account is hacked, and the hacker thinks to try the same details at Amazon, PayPal, your bank...

As you no longer need to remember all the details, you can have the program generate random passwords, like "FRy9VXv2", which no-one will ever guess.

And the program even carries out low-level monitoring of applications that use passwords or request them from other applications, warning you of suspicious actions and so preventing your personal data from being stolen.

What's new in v9 (see release notes for more)?

- Data protection has been improved.
- The initial application setup has been updated and simplified.
- You no longer need to register on My Kaspersky to use Kaspersky Password Manager.  
- The limitations in the free version have been changed. You can now have 15 active entries of any type.
- New sections have been added: Bank cards and Addresses. Data about bank cards and addresses has been moved from Identities to these new sections. Remaining data has been moved to the Notes section.
- You can now store images and document scans in the vault. They will be stored in an encrypted format.
- Kaspersky Password Manager can now automatically search your computer for scans and photographs of sensitive documents.
- Kaspersky Password Manager extensions can now autofill bank card and address details on websites.
- You can now send us feedback about your Kaspersky Password Manager experience from the application interface.
- The latest versions of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Yandex.Browser are now supported.
- Entries can now be displayed in a tile view.
- The application interface has been improved.

Verdict:

While this is a capable and effective tool for managing your personal data, it's a little on the expensive side.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.91

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.91

- When receiving photos or GIFs, you can 3D Touch or swipe left on the notification and tap "View" to preview the media from within the notification (iOS 10+).
- You can now search on the Status tab to quickly find status updates.
