Password Manager for MacOSX on USB drive?

by Mark Nener / August 31, 2007 12:29 PM PDT

My friend who uses Windows OS has a useful program on his USB drive for managing his passwords. It is called ROBOFORM. It seems particularly useful having his passwords with him where-ever he goes since his job requires him to travel extensively away from his home PC.

I am a Mac OS user and I know there are Password Managers out there for Mac OS, but none I have found will run on a USB drive. I am hoping to get the same portability as my friend with his USB drive. I travel alot also, and sometimes need to use the occasional iNet Cafe which are predominantly PC. Are there Password Managers out there that are platform independent?

Can anyone suggest an alternative for Mac OS USB?
