I use KeePass - free, open-source, cross-platform (you need mono on Linux); it can be installed, or you can use the portable version (I do), and it is fantastic. I recommend it to everyone I know (and no, I'm not affiliated with it, I just love it).

I have been using STRIP by Zetetic for a couple of years because my IT consultant recommended it. I would be interested in your comments.

Is there anything wrong with letting Mozilla Firefox remember my passwords? I really do like that feature.

Like mot folks, I detest passwords and am probably guilty of most, if not all errors.
I've not used a password system so far because of my fear of having all my passwords externally and potentially unknown to me.
Although I'm willing to have other things stored or backed up that way, what happens if that system goes down or becomes unavailable for some reason? It seems to me that you are doubly screwed that way. Is there a way to keep a record of what's there and store it elsewhere as a data backup, if needed? Can the system generate one?
Would really love both your answers and opinions.

If I started with the $12 LastPass version for a year, how easily could I switch to DashLane if the price got hiked or I didn't like it? Would I have to start all over again entering the data and passwords?
BTW, I went to LastPass site and saw that you can see and access all your account info, passwords, etc. locally.
Thanks for making this all available. I've followed and shared your info for years, but this is the first time I've ever posted questions.

I've used Roboform, (threw it away) as it's too cumbersome. Did try Passwordbox, before the buy out. So won't comment
Using Dashlane Pro across many devices. Seems to be O.K.... but is not a perfect panacea! I would say, no one has it figured out for multiple PC's and devices. My wife and I use a common account for all devices and accounts... She hates it! says it's wrong more times than not on her computer.

Left out one of the best - KeePass. Works with practically all operating systems.

Been using LastPass for three or four years now, on all my machines. Could NOT live without it!

Bob, I totally get-and agree with-your arguments for having a strong encrypted manager, yet I don't use one. The reason is, I don't know what I'd do if something went wrong with it and it no longer provided the correct login information for a site. For me to change to a new password at any given site, I'd have to know the old password, and... Oh yeah, the old password is in an app that is no longer working correctly and I didn't write it down in order to have maximum security. Is this a valid concern, and what is the solution for it?

EDITOR'S NOTE: I can see that being a concern with an unknown or brand-new password manager, but not with any of the well-established ones.

Bob - for the rest of October, RoboForm Everywhere is giving a one-year FREE use of their software. This is what it says at their site (http://www.roboform.com/ncsam):

"In honor of National Cyber Security Awareness
Month, we're giving away a free year of
RoboForm Everywhere to all new users, plus 20% off for all renewals!"

Not a bad deal at all!

I currently use Panda security with a built in password generator and also Norton 360 with a vault. I think both are good for passwords.

Keepass is my manager of choice. Using dropbox I can keep the database in the cloud, using a client for all my systems have access to passwords and other important account information. I share with my wife so if anything happens to one of us the other has access to the important information. Clients I have are Mac, IOS, Android, Linux and Windows. Best part it's free.....

I like SplashID. I do not and will not use cloud based solutions (I do not use the cloud based SplashID) but I do have the data on my Blackberry, several different computers, my android tablet and my wife's Ipad and use wifi sync to keep them up to date. Not free but not expensive and no yearly fee.

I've been using ewallet for years and it works very well. I have it installed in Windows, Iphone, Ipad and Android. I can sync every mobile device via WiFi from the desktop version.

The "password manager" company provides a free computer program to the public. And the public provides all their login and password data to the company. What could possibly go wrong?

Okay, I'm not familiar with LogMeIn, but I've got a good solid hundred passwords stored in LastPass, plus about fifteen notes and a half dozen profiles. I don't have a solid reason to change, and it's going to be a pain in the patootie to unmask and copy/paste all those site/name/pw combinations.

Does anyone offer an extract API for LastPass, or even a conversion to their own format? Because if not, I'm going to stick with what I've got until I actually see a reason to change, like a service degradation or a big spike in the price.
