Memory help required - Human not PC!

As Iam advancing over the hill of old-age (ahem!) I would like a free programme that will remember all my password and logins for all my Web and accounts - Yahoo, Bank, PC advisor, You Tube etc - and those of my wife too.
It must be able to be locked by one password so that my sons cant get into it and upload in my name!! - or worse, fall into ID thieves.

any ideas of a suitable programme that I could use??

Thanks in advance from an aged member of the society (40+ and counting!)

You could try just saving them all in a Word document (or similar) - don't give it the obvious title like 'my passwords' - and simply password protect THAT.
Can't think of a particular prog but I know there are some out there.

Do what I do.

Keep them on an Excel spreadsheet, which can be password-protected and stored on a removable media - not on the PC.

You could try RoboForm click here

Note: 'Or Start Free Trial' is in small print just below the 'Get RoboForm Pro' button.

I use Keepass click here but it may be a bit over the top for some. Roboform is popular apparently, but I've never used it myself click here

I save mine in a word document with some innocuous text in - the put the passwords in white text.

To see them choose Edit - Select All - or highlight the whole document with the mouse.

If you also password the document, pretty foolproof I would have thought.

I saved mine on a list and printed it out

I can then look at it with whenever I can't remamber a particular password etc.

You can always lock it away if you want to keep it from prying eyes.

I use the free version (v1.44)click here which is simple to use and has a built in password protection facility.
