  • PWMinder uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) which is the standard adopted by the U.S. Government.
  • Passwords are stored in Repository files. You can have as many Repositories as you want, e.g. one for home passwords, one for work passwords, one for each person in your family, etc.
  • Since each Repository is a file on your computer, it is easy to transfer Repositories from one computer to another, to store them on a memory stick, back them up, etc.
  • The Repository file format is compatible with iPWMinder, and PWMinder Android, so the Repositories you create on your Desktop Computer can be accessed and modified on your Smart Phone.
  • In addition to storing a login and a password, each record can also store an Account number, URL, eMail address, Notes, Security questions and more.
  • URLs and eMail fields in the record, are hyper-linked and can open your Web Browser or Email Client.
  • Each password record can have an expiry date set for it, to remind you to change the password.
  • Logins and Passwords can easily be copied and pasted from PWMinder into other applications such as a Web Browser.
  • Copied Passwords can be auto-cleared from the clipboard after a set period of time NEW for 3.1!


  • PWMinder is a Cross-Platform application and runs on Windows (Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10) and macOS (10.7 and up), so your passwords can be shared between all your computers.
