Can anyone recommend a password keeper/generator ?
The real problem with a password keeper/generator is that all of your passwords are then in one place and easy to steal.
But you can keep them safe with a password
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.
Norton do one part of the internet security suite.
Doesn't Firefox remember them ?
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.
'Once more unto the breech dear friends once more' could become
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
I'll keep them for you jim........but when you send them over can you detail which ones are for what.........you know... banks. building societies, credit cards.... etc
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:

I've been trying a few (free) ones out, settled on Keepass2,
