    So over the years I have accumulated a significant pile of bought applications/games/utilities etc. I am tired of this pile of plastic cd cases, and wish to transfer all of the cds/dvds to a cd book. However, since they all have different serial numbers and/or activation codes that are in the plastic cd case, this is not possible. I am looking for a nice, secure application or utility that can store all of my serial numbers with easy access if I need them. Does anyone know of such a thing? It would be awesome if something like this existed, but if it does not, does anyone know of another way to store all of this info? I think a text document just listing all of them is out of the question, as that is not secure at all. Thanks.

    Could just create a secure note in your Keychain.

    You may want to look at KeePassx. It's free, easy to use and you can sync with your other computers using Dropbox ( free also) or MobleMe.. I used moblie me before I found Dropbox.. Both worked very well.

    Hmm. Well KeePassX is nice, but I'm looking for Wallet 3, but free :p. Anything out there?

    Make an encrypted disk image. Store text document or spreadsheet in it.

    Duff-Man says....have a look at 1Password maybe. It's usually not free but if you go through the MacHeist Giving Tree you'll get a free licensed copy - hurry though as that deal won't last too long (some of the other freebies are cool too)...oh yeah!

    I believe 1Password, Wallet and Caboodle all offer what you are seeking :)

    Pastor is a good free app for this. It is donation ware but it doesn't nag and works uncrippled for free.

    Try license keeper, used it for a couple of years now and its designed for exactly that.

    I also use LicenseKeeper. The only feature that it lacks, in my opinion, is automatic syncing between macs. Someone mentioned Dropbox earlier in this thread, and I have a Dropbox account for syncing 1Password, but does anyone know how/if I can sync LicenseKeeper using iDisk? I'm trying to get the most out of my MobileMe subscription.

    You are awesome! This is exactly what I was looking for. Although not too visually appealing, this does the job. Thanks a lot!
