Default Password Asterisk Logger

Password Asterisk Logger

Most software programs display passwords in asterisks to prevent bypassers from accidentally identifying the typed in password. That feature is however superfluous if there are no other users who can accidentally spot the password. Still, asterisks are displayed whenever the password is entered.
Problems can arise if a user is forgetting the password that he used in the application. This can lead to all kinds of problems like having to reinstall a software program or losing encrypted data.
Asterisk Logger is a portable software program that runs quietly in the background. It monitors and logs windows with password forms. Asterisk Logger basically records passwords and related information giving the user access to those information in case of lost passwords.
It does that for many applications in Windows but not for all. It is up to the user to find out about the limitations. Generally speaking it works with most password text-boxes but not with applications that use additional security including web browsers like Firefox or Internet Explorer.

The application is not only logging the password but also the window title, application where the password has been entered and the time. These information can be exported to html.
