APC Biometric Password Manager Review

Introduction

Choosing usernames and passwords, typing them and logging in are a drag. You have to manage several different ones for websites and Windows applications in your head and lose a significant amount of time logging in. APC’s Biometric Password Manager (aka the Biopod) ensures that you don’t have to do this anymore – just put your finger on the little USB-powered fingerprint scanner and you get instant and trouble-free entrance to web-based e-mail, online stores, internet forums etc. No more fussing around with little black books of secret passwords – or worse, a Post-It decorated monitor screen.

The Biopod not only manages your passwords but also can encrypt Windows files and folders so that only you can access them through your (literally) fingertip. It’s double the security for the price of only one device. The Biopod is a 2 1/2-inch by 3 1/2-inch device that connects to your PC with a six-foot long USB cable. It has two rubber bands on its back to prevent sliding on your desktop.
