Use KeyChain Access to securely store passwords, etc
Authored by: henry on Jan 28, '04 02:19:36PM

Keychain Access was my first port-of-call whilst searching for a password solution. I like that it's built-in, and you can allow apps access to keychain items. But I don't like the fact that there's no search facility (not that I could find anyway) and I don't like having to tick a little box, then enter my system password before I can see the information I want.

The lack of a good search facility is what led me to LaunchBar in the first place. I want to be able to just type the name of the password I want and then have it displayed for me, and I want to be able to do that in any application without launching another.

If Apple adds a good search facility to Keychain Access I'll likely switch to that instead, but LaunchBar is a hard act to follow in my opinion.

As an aside: I initially thought it was ironic that I used LaunchBar to launch Keychain Access back at the start of all this, but after consulting the dictionary I'm not so sure.

Ironic: "characterized by often poignant difference or incongruity between what is expected and what actually is"

It is ironic. You sought out a program that you thought would be your solution by using the one that turned out to be your solution. You're no Alanis. On topic, I second the suggestion of SplashID.
