    The real problem with a password keeper/generator is that all of your passwords are then in one place and easy to steal.

    I use Password safe both at work and at home.

    I have noticed that the recommended work one is now KeePass.

    I have used Robform for years. Don't know what I'd do without it.

    Dont use firefox or IE to remember your passwords - as by definition they have to be decrypted to be used - and I have a "tool" which just decrypts and tells me what they are. So not secure.

    Use an "old timer" "open source" database - KeePass is my recommendation - and use a loooooooooooooooong sentence/password.

    I use quotes and substitute numbers for the prepositions eg to-2,for-4 etc.

    For those of you having problems remembering passwords/pin numbers etc just e-mail the details to me along with your credit cards numbers and I will keep them safe for you:Rofl1:

    I've used Keepass2 for some time now and have no qualms recommending it, its free, gets good reviews, has a password generator and entries can easily be organised by creating additional folders.

    Hop the link works. :thumb:
