Simple to Use Password Manager With AES Encryption

A password manager is an essential tool for keeping all our passwords and login details safe and secure, but it should be easy to handle and safe to use. Pault is such a simple password manager for Windows. It encrypts your usernames and passwords using the AES encryption algorithm and runs with minimal user permissions for better security.

Pault stores your passwords in a single encrypted text file and cannot be opened by a master password. Moreover, only Pault can read this text file, so it protects your passwords against brute force decryption methods.

Though, Pault is very simple to use and USB portable, feature wise it is far behind some other password managers. But, it is most secure, because it uses AES encryption and runs with minimal user permissions, means it is not able to connect to the internet in any way.


To use this tool, run it, enter a master password. Then click ‘Add New’ option and add password and user name or email address. You can add any number of passwords and user names.

As I told above, it stores your login details in a text file. You can copy this file to a USB drive or online storage service to eliminate the risk of losing your passwords. However, your master password should not be forgotten.


Pault works on Windows XP through Windows 8 (required .Net Framework 3.5) and can be downloaded from developer’s here.

Because of the ever growing threats via web browsers, browser developers have trying to give best security features to their browser. All major browsers have added security technologies to combat web-based threats, but, not all of them have taken the same approach, nor claim to stop the same breadth of attacks.
