Pros: I like that it creates a file even if you type the password incorrectly. This is a nice feature for stalling and confusing any would be attackers.

Cons: I dislike the EULA. "We may place announcements ... into this product." and "This software ... will automatically harness installed web browsers ... by setting up customized search engine powered by Google (TM)." It may be portable but it certainly is not stealthy, it knows when you have already agreed to the EULA and so must be writing something to the computer you are using it on.

Other Thoughts: This could have been a nice app if it would do what the user wants instead of what Google wants them to do.
