Old j2me phones had a built in pw manager
irene25432133d@ganjamanaybe that was a feature of one particular phone. I don't remember anything like that in old phones 🤔
theKarlisK5185133d@irene nah he's right - I remember rudamentary password managers, they were present on models aimed as business phones of various calibers. Don't forget you could install additional applications through *.jar packages, Sony Ericsson even had a application store in form of a website. Fun fact - I don't remember any of those password managers offering anything more than an optional four digit code as "master password". I also don't think any of them encrypted your passwords and stored them as plaintext (as was the standard back in the day).
ynnk734132d„Never write down a password“ means that you should never write a password down (: at least not all characters
Ohh my young childhood!
I remember my first phone: Sony Ericsson K700i. A fucking brick with a small joystick.
So when i was bored i of coursw was dicking around in different apps.
Password manager was preinstaled in utility section.
I can confirm that password manager used encryption. And it was interesting! Every password had a name and the value. Master password didnt block access! It even allowed you to see all those passwords when you provided wrong master password! But all of they would be garbage because it tried to decrypt them using a wrong password!
Oh those were the times...
theKarlisK5185129d@Gregozor2121 that's kinda brilliant if think about it - there are no wrong passwords, except for the billions of combinations of garbled, incorrectly decrypted passwords.
And man how I remember k700i being badass, I had some newer model of the k-series but it was cheaper and didn't hold a candle to k700i. I remember how badass it was when they launched the initial "Arc" series.
