Web Confidential 5.0

Alco Blom has released version 5 of his venerable Web Confidential password manager (which TidBITS has been covering for more than two decades; see “Web Confidential: Securing Information of All Sorts,” 3 August 1998), which was rewritten from scratch to meet the 64-bit requirements in the upcoming macOS 10.15 Catalina. Additionally, the update adds support for Touch ID and the Touch Bar on MacBook Pro models, incorporates support for AppleScript, enables you to import passwords from tab-delimited text files, and adds support for large text sizes. Web Confidential 5 costs $25, and you can upgrade from previous versions for $20. ($25 new from the Web Confidential Web site or the Mac App Store, $20 upgrade, 6.2 MB, release notes, macOS 10.13+)

  1. I’m supporting this and purchased the upgrade not so much for this product specifically, but more to support Alco Blom. URL-Manager Pro is the product I use daily and I am extremely happy he is updating it. All these years I have not found anything better.
