Password Shield is a security program that protects passwords. It has an encrypted file of site names and the password to each site. You can click on a site name from the list and then on the password input box. Password Shield will insert the password to the input box. This allows you to input a password into a field on a Web form or similar input box without actually knowing or seeing the password. Password Shield will only input the password into a masked input box, so even when the password has been input, the user does not see the password. This is useful for companies that need to give their employees access to certain secure systems, but do not want to actually give these employees the passwords. For example, a company might need to allow employees to remotely access other companies' computers to do maintenance work, but not want to give the employees the actual system passwords. A company might also need to give its employees access to the company PayPal or online bank accounts, but not want the employees to have the passwords, which they might then use to access the accounts from home. One security feature of Password Shield is that employees must sign onto Password Shield with their own individual password. Password Shield keeps a log of all the passwords that person uses. If any suspicious activity occurs in the account, you can check the log to see who was using Password Shield at that time. Another nice feature of this program is that many spyware keyloggers cannot intercept a password sent from Password Shield to a program or Web site, because Password Shield sets the password directly into the text box, rather than sending keystrokes. Key logging is a common method of stealing passwords. We cannot guarantee absolutely that spyware cannot steal your passwords, but Password Shield does reduce the probability that any spyware will be able to obtain your passwords.
