Password Manager - User Guide
Requires Microsoft .NET 4.0 and higher

This user guide will help you understand the different functions that Password Manager provides. This software was created to keep password secure on a local machine, but to also provide an easy and pleasant experience. 

Password Manager is an extremely lightweight program that is tightly depended on the user account. This program will allow you to store passwords or anything in pairs [i.e. Email Address + Password or Name + Phone Number etc.]. The program is very easy to use and can generate strong passwords. All data that is saved is encrypted. The days of remember several passwords are over. You only need to remember one Master Password to get access to all of your passwords.

 

1: This is normally where you would enter your username; however a username is not a requirement. You can enter anything you want in this area. If you plan to save a telephone number, then you would enter the person or company “Name” here.

2: This is normally where you would enter your password; however, as I stated above, this is also not a requirement. You can enter anything you want in this area. If you plan to save a name and telephone number, then you would enter the telephone “Number” here.

3:
Pressing the “Generate Password” button will simply generate a strong password. Password Manager is capable of generating very strong cryptographic passwords. The generated passwords are always random. You are free to add or delete characters as you please.

4: This area allows you to select how long the password should be. For example, if you left click on the “16 characters” box a check will appear. If you press the “Generate Password” button only 16 characters will be generated for your password. If there are no boxes checked the program will create an extremely long cryptographic password.  Some websites only allow a certain amount of characters so 8 – 20 characters should be fine for most websites. Feel free to use more if you are allowed to.

5: Press the “Save” button to save your data that you entered in the #1 and #2 areas above.

6: This drop down list will show you all of your saved data.

7: After selected data from the drop down list [#6] you can edit your data. After editing your data you can save the data by pressing the “Save” button [#5] to overwrite and save new changes. To cancel the save and avoid saving the changes you have made you should press the “Clear Copy\Paste” button [#12]. That button will clear all fields in the program.

8: After selecting data from the drop down list [#6] you can press the “Show” button to view the data in the areas #9 and #10.

9:  This area will allow you to copy and paste your saved emails, usernames or any information you have saved into web browsers and other software.  You must select data from the drop down list and press the “Show” button to see this information.

10: Similar to #9 above, this area will allow you to copy and paste your saved passwords, credit card numbers or any information you have saved into web browsers and other software.  You must select data from the drop down list and press the “Show” button to see this information.

11: After selecting data from the drop down list [#6] and pressing the “Show” button [#8] you can use the “Copy to Web Browser” button to automatically copy the information from Password Manager to the website or program that you choose. Simply left click and focus on the Username or Email area on the web page, and then press the “Copy to Web Browser”. From that point Password Manager will automatically copy your username and password and fill in the respective fields. If you have the “Auto Submit” box checked you will be automatically signed into the website

12: The “Auto Submit” checkbox allows you to tell Password Manager to automatically submit the information after you have used the “Copy to Web Browser”. So if the box is checked your information will be submitted. If the box is not checked you will have to press the “Submit” or “Login” button manually to login into a website

13: After you have purchased a license from Triple Phelix you will click here to enter your new serial number. You can also use this area to donate if you would like to support more software in the future.

14: You will use the “Clear Copy\Paste” button to clear your paste clipboard. After copying and pasting your user name and password you would then use the “Clear Copy\Paste” button. You don’t want your password sitting around in memory after you’ve closed the program or have logged into a website. You can also use the “Clear Copy\Paste” button to clear the text in areas #1, #2, #9 and #10.

15: The “Export” button is used to export your saved data to an unencrypted plain text file. You will have to confirm this action otherwise the action will be cancelled. Use caution when using the “Export” button and be sure that you will be removing the unencrypted plain text file ASAP. The unencrypted data is saved in the “P_Manager” folder. The “P_Manager” folder is found inside of your Document folder.  

16:  Use the “Delete” button after you have selected data from the drop down list [#7]. You will be asked to confirm the deletion otherwise the deletion will be canceled.

 

Advanced Usage

We are looking for feedback so please feel free to contact us if you would like to see more features. Advanced Users can get the most out of Password Manager. The goal is to make password manager as flexible as possible. One extra feature that we offer is the Web Browser pasting to a web page. Which means that once you select data and click the” Show” button you can have Password Manager automatically paste data to a webpage? This was discussed in #10 above, however, there are two other things to learn and know. First let’s recap using the “Copy to Web Browser” button.

How to Copy Data from Password Manager to Web Browser using the Button

The first thing you should do is open your favorite web browser such as Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera etc. Navigate to your login page and left click on your mouse in the login area for your username or email. Now you simply press the “Copy to Web Browser” in Password Manager and your username and password will be automatically transferred over to the web browser. You can also use this with programs on your PC that requires a username\email and password. So you aren’t limited to just web browsers.

 

How to Copy Data from Password Manager to Web Browser using the HotKey

Password Manager also supports a hotkey function that allows you to transfer data automatically to the Web Browser. The steps are very similar to the steps above, but a bit different. When using the hotkey you will not have to go back into the Password Manager app to press “Copy to Web Browser” button. 

The first thing you should do is open your favorite web browser such as Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera etc. Navigate to your login page and press left click on your mouse in the login area for your username or email. Now press “CTRL + SHIFT + INSERT” on your keyboard and your username and password will be automatically transferred over to the web browser without you having to go back into the Password Manager app. If you have the “Auto Submit” button checked your data will be automatically submitted to the server.

Reserved Characters

`  Grave Accent

You cannot use the ` symbol also known as the Grave Accent in your usernames or passwords. The grave accent is located above the TAB key. If you attempt to use the Grave Accent, Password Manager will prevent you from doing so.

~  Tilde Accent

The Tilde Accent is above the TAB key as well, but is used along with the SHIFT Key. The ~ Tilde Accent symbol plays a special role in Password Manager. I have come to the understanding that users might need to store more information in the “Username” area. For instance you might store a website along with the username and email address as shown below:

If you use two Tilde Accents ~ ~, only the information in-between the Tilde Accent will be copied to the web browser using the “Copy to Web Browser”  button or the hotkey function “CTRL + SHIFT + INSERT” . In the example above only the word “username” [without quotations] and the password below it will be copied. Everything else outside of the double Tilde symbols [~ ~] will be discarded.

 

In the example above if you choose to press the “Copy to Web Browser” button or use the hotkey “CTRL + SHIFT + INSERT”, only “BlindTurtle” [without quotations] will be copied to the username field and the password will be copied as usual to the password field. This can be beneficial for users who need to save a little more information along with their usernames and\or emails. It is worth noting that you can use the double tildes anywhere in the username field, but please only use 2.

If a website requires an email address to login and you want to include more information, simply put the email address in-between the tilde symbols. Example:  Yahoo.com ~ email address here ~. Only the email address will be copied.
