On the edge

Identity info packaged to go

A new software application from Siber Systems Inc. lets users securely manage and carry passwords and digital identities on a USB Flash drive, officials from the Fairfax, Va., company said.

The 3MB application, Pass2Go, is for those who don't want to store passwords, identities and banking and credit card information on their computer hard drives. Users plug in a USB drive that is loaded with Pass2Go to log in automatically to online accounts, fill in online forms or to access an address book. The personal information never appears on a client PC, it remains only on the USB drive.
