over the months and Years we all collect many many Passwords. For Credit Cards, Debit Cards, Various programmes, Bank Accounts etc etc etc. i should be interested to know where other people keep them all. I currently and just recentlyput them into Documents. But i need a good programme with a master Passwords so they are safe. Have tried several so called Safes but either not very good or far to complex.

What are all you custodians of your Passwords using ?

hi

I have used Keepass for a few years now. ALL passwords are 256 bit encrypted and you only need 1 master password- but don't forget it. This program is also in portable form for usb pen drives

Yes agree that's what I've been using. But thought I ought try something a bit more up to date before I regret it.

I don't save any important passwords on the PC.

Every single password is stored in my head. I never store any on the computer. Even a password manager can be cracked!

click here, I have used this for years with no trouble at all. I have well over 100 passwords/logins etc stored in it all protected by 1 master password.

Well I've got over 20 to remember which I find a problem as I cannot even remember what day of the week it is sometimes, especially like this week when every day seems a weekend. Must be getting old.

I use three - well one really, but the other two are backups in case the 1st one fails :-). I have to use these tools as I have far too many passwords.

Main one is the free LastPass click here. It integrates into IE natively, but Firefox & Google Chrome need plugins for the best functionality in those browsers - click here & click here.

Backups are RoboForm click here (the paid-for version that I got free via TrialPay), & the free version of Any Password click here. G
