  • hey guys - what about 1Password from Agilebits?
    i'm not related to them other than being a customer.
    but their feature set - runs on Mac, Windows & iOS - and lets you store a common keychain of credentials in Dropbox to stay in sync across devices - is pretty sweet.
  • I would much rather have an encrypted excel document in a folder cleverly disguised as 'first borns birth'. been doing this for 10 years and never once has anyone entered that folder. XD
  • Been using KeePass&Dropbox for a while.

    On a side note, Marshall H Hembree is the best bot name i've ever read.
  • I tend not to trust these password programs. Call me cynical but I feel much safer having a document stored in a secure location rather than trusting a program that may or may not be a scam with all your passwords. Just my taske on it all. Fair play to anyone else who uses these sort of programs though with no problems! =)
  • Mozilla firefox seems to have the ability to do this with a master password without any pluggin. Why bother with extra bloat when it is built in to the browser?
  • I too have been using an encrypted excel spreadsheet for years and it's on an encrypted usb that doubles as my "I've fallen and can't get up" passport. Nothing worse than croaking and having your faceplant account live on forever and your loved ones can't get rid of it.
  • Thanks Tom's, now we know the top 10 Pwd Mgt software to avoid. Cause now they would be targeted by hackers and the Govt.
  • guys, i think efficient password manager http://www.efficientsoftware.net/passwordmanager/ is a good choice. i used it because of my friends' recommendation, although need pay for it. but it is really useful
  • Intuitive Password is a new online password manager. I've used Intuitive Password for a few months and it's one of the few free programs I have upgraded to the Express edition ($2 per month). It is simple to use and makes the password jungle easier to navigate. Can't imagine browsing without it.
