MyLok Editor's Review

MyLok is a password management solution used primarily to store sensitive corporate information. Though, it is portable like other solutions of its category it can be only used along with a customized USB storage device developed by ii2P.

MyLok's personal edition includes a 4 GB USB drive. There is a built in smart card which is provided along with the storage device to store sensitive information. Around 250 passwords and IDs can be stored in the smart card. On chip encryption is provided through a microprocessor which runs MULTOS or Multi Operating System. If there is any sign of external tampering the microprocessor will self destruct for security measures.

Registration is mandatory before using the application. During the registration process internet connection will be required. Details about USB drive should also be kept handy. Protection for the software is also enabled during this step and you have to fixate on two security questions and a PIN. Verification of this data will happen every time the software is launched. There is no import login facility and the database has to be filled manually. The looks are also not attractive, which is a clear indication of the fact, that the developer’s primary focus was functionality.

User interface is simple and the navigation through menus is kept straightforward. Provision is there to add login credentials for desktop applications as well as web accounts. Password reset facility is kept simple and can be done from the configuration panel. But password is reset to factory defaults and knowledge of that will be essential to run the application. Backup and restore facilities are also provided in the application. Custom configuration can be done on various aspects like enabling automatic backup, creating countersign for built-in password and dialog for auto launch.

The software’s compatibility to web browsers is limited to Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. Moreover, the software is not even compatible with either 64 bit IE. The earlier versions of the software did not even work with Mozilla 8.0 or higher versions but the recent version of the software works with every version of Mozilla.

A window should pop up immediately as you attempt to login to any of your accounts. In case the auto launch is not working you can access the launch manually and store your password for specific applications. Once, the credentials are captured the window will have the credentials typed in already. Facility for editing is not provided at this stage. Renaming the profile name and title of the entry are still allowed. Entry might also be added to the bookmark section for quick access at a later stage. Window will show which all input fields have been detected along with their value.

A distinguishing feature of MyLok in comparison to other password management solution is the fact that it allows for split credentials. This is specifically helpful in case of websites which require multiple steps for login. The built in password generator has limited functionalities in comparison to most of its peers. Based on internal algorithm a random string of characters is generated as password but it cannot be edited according to your inputs. However, you can build your own password by making use of the virtual keyboard. Another downside of the password generator is it can only be used to assign passwords to accounts which are already there in the database and hence cannot be used to assign passwords during creation of accounts.

Positive Points:
  -  Simple and unimpressive yet remarkably easy to use interface.
  -  Built-in smartcard to store sensitive data.
  -  Good Encryption technology.

Negative Points:
  -  Password management is easy, but lacks some useful features.
  -  Password generator options are limited.
  -  No import facility available.
  -  Works only for Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

Conclusion:
MyLok has brought in a new age encryption technology as compared to its competitors but the options and features are very rigid. While the hardware side is best in its class, the software side will need significant improvement to outdo its competitors.

Rating: 3/5
