Passwords Reminder Software
Letter from Chris Thornton:
It is with a heavy heart that I reluctantly remove Darn!
Passwords from the market. Darn! is no longer sold or
supported by Thornsoft Development, Inc. We kept it alive for
another 10+ years after Emmasoft, but the industry has moved on.
A modern password manager needs to be cross-platform, cloud-enabled,
sensitive to browser context, able to auto-fill forms, highly
secure, and backed by dozens of developers, testers, security
analysts and big $$$. Adding all of this to Darn! is something
that we are just not able to do.
Darn! Passwords 2000-2014
We hope to keep this site up to allow users to have access to the
software in order to migrate their data to a new password platform.
So what do we use? Brenda has a Mac, and uses something called
"Keeper". I use a series of Windows PCs, and Android phone and
Android tablet, and I have found that LastPass does a great job. I
was able to migrate from Darn! to LastPass in about 10 minutes.
LastPass has an import wizard that already knows about the Darn! CSV
format. So I "printed" my passwords from darn, choosing to export to
a .csv file. Then I copy/pasted the contents of that file into
LastPass, and voila! All of my passwords were there.
LastPass has everything that a modern password manager should have,
including cloud sync (but they never know any of your passwords,
which is cool), 2-factor authentication, form fill, and all sorts of
other cool stuff.
In closing, I'd like to thank our users for many years of support
and kind words. I'd also like to thank Dan Veaner for inventing this
great software in the first place. It was truely one of the
forerunners of this market category, and whenever I look at a fancy
modern solution like LastPass, I can see Dan's ideas still alive.
