KeyCutter is a tool to generate and maintain passwords for web sites and PINs for credit cards without storing anything. Click on 'About' in order to learn more about KeyCutter
Try it out: enter a user name, security answer, input password, and then, say, 'Amazon' in the destination field. (Leave the version number as is.) Click on the 'Password' button to generate a password for Amazon. Each time you enter the same input, it will generate the same passwrod. Then do it again using 'eBay' instead of 'Amazon': the generated password is entirely different.

Frequently Asked Questions
- My bank SafeMyCents requires me to change my password every month. What do I do? You can add the month-name to the destination field. So you use the same user name, security question and answer, and input passwords, but for the destination you enter 'SafeMyCents-March' to generate the password for March.
- I want to change my KeyCutter password for Amazon but leave all other passwords the same. How do I do that? Similar to the answer to previous question, you could change the destination, say to Amazon2. Of course, in the long run this is a real pain. Probably you'll just have to change all your passwords. In my experience, it's not so bad to do this once in a while.
