  • Good tool for passwords?

    Bit off topic, but does anyone know of a good tool to store, save, protect usernames and passwords etc I am getting tired of keep forgetting them with the amount I have.

    Any recommendations?

    if you’re on a Mac, there’s only one choice, 1Password. It’s awesome.

    If on Windows, someone else will need to make a recommendation.

      I've been using Keepass for years now and it hasn't missed a beat.

        I have been using Splash ID from www.splashdata.com for years.

        They had PC and Mac, iphone, Palm, BB, Windows Mobile.

        They are fantastic, I have been their costumer I think since 2001 or 2002

          Another vote for SplashID

          I second Augusto's recommendation for SplahID; I too have used it on a daily basis for the past two years or so .

          It's the best tool I know of that manages all my passwords on my desktop PC AND on my PocketPC, and automagically synchronizes information between the two.

          This is one of the very essential piece of software that I use, along with MyLifeOrganized.

            Callpod Keeper

            I use Callpod Keeper - http://www.callpod.com/products/keeper

            Runs on Mac, Windows or Linux, with apps for iPhone, Android and others so you keep synced while on the move.

            The Mac application is a little slow to boot up perhaps, but other than that it appears secure and seems to do its simple job well. Syncs no problems with the iPhone app.

              DevonThink

              I have a special database for all passwords/logins in DevonThink, which is the tool I use for storing Reference Materials. Lets me keep all the necessary details together including direct links to login screens, history notes, etc.

                If on a Mac, I would heartily second the recommendation for 1Password. It's truly an awesome tool, with a great team behind it. I recently had to start using Windows, and haven't found a good replacement yet. I'll have to try Splash ID now.

                  SplashID is the one I like the look of most since I’m not on the mac.

                  Call pod also looks fairly neat.

                  Thanks everyone.

                    I have a PC and and Palm

                    For all those many, many passwords, I use Passwords Plus. I've had it so long, I don't remember exactly what I paid, but it was about $15 - $20. If I were starting now, I'd look for something open source, but the idea of converting all those passwords to new software scares me.

                      For Windows I would recommend Password Safe, it's free and works great:

                        For those that want your password to be accessible via Mac or Windows you an use KeePass. Definately defactor opensource password manager.

                        You can install the app but you can also use the portableversion to put in your thumbdrive to have it wherever you go.

                          I'm on a Mac, and my vote is for Wallet - it's awesome. Syncs with iPhone too.

                            RoboForm & 1Password

                            I use RoboForm on my PC and I use 1Password on my Mac. Both are great!

                              I used eWallet on the PC and windows mobile phone for years before switching to mac and using 1Password. eWallet does have an iPhone app.
