SplashData Enables PC and Mac Users to Manage Passwords
with New SplashID
Secure Vault for Storing Passwords, Log-ins, PINs and Other Sensitive
Now Available for Desktop and Notebook Computers
Los Gatos, Calif. - Aug. 30, 2006 - SplashData, Inc., the leading provider
of mobile productivity software, today announced that its popular SplashID
smartphone application for securely organizing and managing passwords
is now available for desktop users. SplashID Desktop Edition enables
Windows PC and Mac users to store, sort and organize all of their confidential
information easily on their desktop. With an installed base of over 500,000
users for SplashID's existing mobile versions, a desktop-only version
was a natural next step for SplashData's product line.
"Over the years, we have received numerous requests to make SplashID's
companion software available in a stand-alone desktop version for people
who do not have smartphones," said Morgan Slain, CEO of SplashData. "We
see the new Desktop Edition as a great opportunity to bring the benefits
of SplashID to anyone who needs a way to organize and protect all of
their passwords and other records."
SplashID allows users to store an unlimited number of customizable records
(such as passwords, credit card numbers, registration codes, membership
numbers, insurance information and even birthdays) securely on their
desktop or notebook computers. Its 256-bit Blowfish encryption provides
proven protection for keeping records secure. SplashID adds an extra
layer of security, as its password generator creates new, unique passwords
based on criteria selected by the user.
"I learned the hard way that using the same username and password
over and over again for different Web sites was not the best idea," said
Amy Stewart, a real estate agent in Windsor, California. "I was
looking for a way to keep track of dozens of passwords securely on my
notebook computer. I found SplashID to be not only the perfect solution
for passwords, but a great way to manage information for bank and brokerage
accounts, insurance policies, memberships, warranties, registrations,
and other confidential records."
SplashID Desktop Edition allows users to mask their information from
the view of others, store an unlimited number of records, and share information
with family members or colleagues. SplashID Desktop Edition features
a number of customizable options, such as icons that enable users to
quickly sort and locate information. For those who are new to SplashID,
the Desktop Edition features an on-screen guide that introduces the software's
SplashID Desktop Edition is available for download from www.splashdata.com for $19.95 and supports Windows 98, ME, NT4, 2000 or XP and Mac OS 10.2
or higher. SplashID Desktop Edition can be easily upgraded at any time
to a version that synchronizes with a smartphone for $9.95.
