29 June 1998 -- Macintosh software developer Alco Blom announced the
introduction today of Web Confidential, his latest offering of Macintosh
software. Web Confidential is an intuitive, easy-to-use program for
managing user IDs, passwords, registration numbers, and the like. Thanks to
the use of a number of advanced features of the Mac operating system, Web
Confidential can be used in close conjunction with popular Mac Internet
software, such as Netscape Navigator, Explorer and Eudora.
While Web Confidential is suitable for a wide variety of personal data,
from creditcard numbers to serial numbers, Alco Blom designed Web
Confidential particularly for the World Wide Web in mind. "Increasing
numbers of Web sites maintain some form of user registration," points out
Blom. "You may not realize it, but in the course of time you may registered
at a couple of dozen sites. Do you remember the passwords you entered for
all of them?"
Web Confidential allows Web surfers to store URLs, user IDs, and passwords
in one secure location. Web Confidential can automate the process of
logging into a password-secured Web page by automatically passing URL, user
ID, and password to your Web browser.
For opening pages containing personal account information at commercial
sites, Web Confidential offers you the one-click convenience of its
Password Shared Menu, saving you from having to retype your user ID and
password each time you log in.
To ensure the personal information stored in Web Confidential remains
confidential, the program's password files can be encrypted using
state-of-the-art encryption technology.
Alco Blom has released Web Confidential as shareware. After a trial period
of thirty days, users are encouraged to register the program for US$25. The
Home Page of Web Confidential is:
Web Confidential is the follow-up to Alco Blom's widely acclaimed,
bestselling URL Manager Pro, also an Internet-oriented software program for
the Mac. "The response among the Mac community to URL Manager Pro has been
extremely gratifying," says Blom. "My experience is that the Mac shareware
community is alive, well, and as vigorous as ever."
