LatchKey Password Vault 1.3.2 Update Ready for Download

Our latest release of LatchKey Password Vault fixes a bug we had on first-time users unable to load the program. We apologize for this mishap during our rush to get a fix out. This latest release of LatchKey comes with bug fixes but also new features. These include:

  • New standard entry fields: expiration action, date, and URL.
  • The entry expiration logic has changed to allow individual entries to have their own expiration dates. Each expired entry can either highlight or prompt the user. Expirations are checked every midnight so long as the LatchKey application is running.
  • Application structure was refactored to support opening files via command-line, even if the application is already running. The installer now associates LKF files in Windows providing you the ability to open a new LKF simply by double-clicking the file in Windows Explorer.
  • We've added the ability to compress LKF files using GZip compression. This helps keep your large password lists small.
  • Plugin libraries now support multiple plugins per DLL. You will be prompted to select the plugins you wish to load from a selected plugin DLL.
  • New export plugins for XML and HTML have been included.
  • LKF files can now be imported and appended to an existing LKF.
  • Quickly contact us via new social icons in the menu and about box.
  • Some silly bug fixes.

LatchKey Password Vault Version 1.2.0 Released

Greetings friends. The latest version of LatchKey Password Vault is now available for download.

WARNING: This release will cause your latchkey file to no longer function from previous versions as we've made major changes to the file format. Also, hashes are no longer stored for validation. You will be prompted for all validation methods (password, PIN, or Pattern) before an attempt to validate your entries is made through decryption. We feel this is a minor inconvenience for a major boost to program security.

To help with this transition we've now included a new feature for importing CSV files. The CSV export feature is already available. We ask that you export your password files first to CSV, install LatchKey 1.2.0, delete your LatchKey LKF and setting files, and then run latchkey through the initial password selection process. Once finished, click the File->Import... menu option, select the exported CSV file, Click No when prompted, and your old entries will be imported into the new LatchKey file.

NOTE: Remember to delete your CSV when the import process is finished. We don't plan on having any more significant changes to the LatchKey file format so this should be the one and only time you need to go through this process.
