Hello,

I want to make a password keeper so i dont have to take a piece of paper with all my passwords with me.

I want to store some passwords as a string in the (exe or agk) program. This is easier than making complex algorithms of the passwords. To see the passwords i have to type a pin number in a textbox.

Anyone knows how save it is to put a password as a string (not loaded from a txt file) in the progam? Becouse the agk is compiled to a non-basic code.

I mean if someone does not know the pin code, can they "hack" the app to get the passwords / strings?

Greetings.

Hi VN,

Thanks for the information. I know a little basic not deep computer code itself.

This is what i mean. Then i have to go to use algoritms for better hiding the passwords.

ROT13 is one of the simplest encryptions but you may want to use a better one
