    Password Program

    Hello All:

    I'm getting a lot of passwords and need a password program. Have IE 8, but Fire Fox is my default browser. Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

    Free or pay makes no difference, just want good security!

    I'm looking at RoboForm & Last Pass. What do you guys recommend.

    Thanks in advance for your continued help!

    The problem with "pay" is that they then know exactly who you are. And they have all your passwords.

    The advantage of open source is that, well, they don't.

    Of course if you absolutely trust the vendor, you probably could just use "password" as your passwords. <g>

    I use Last Pass (free edition) very successfully. I can install Last Pass on any PC and can then sign onto any of my sites. I also use the form fill very often.

    Personally I used to use Robo and I tried Last Pass and liked both; however, I have recently switched to using Abine because it not only tracks your logins and passwords, it also blocks targeted Ad Networks and Web Trackers as well as has a cookie controller (I use it partially, because FF takes care of clearing cookies when it closes). This works well with FF but not IE yet. I was introduced to this program about a month ago and am very happy with it. I have found 2 sites which don't allow it to work (one bank and one other) but overall I have 29 sites with logins and passwords which auto log me in. Check it out. It is easy to set up and if you need help, just ask.

    I recently installed it on 1 brand new laptop and another laptop which had to be recovered due to hardware issues. The clients are very happy with its capabilities. Many of my friends and family now use it as well.

    Are you suggesting they have uploaded your passwords to their server, or that they may hold you to ransom?

    I have been using RoboForm and RoboForm2go successfully for a while to I have had little to no problems in maintaining and keeping track of my passwords.
    I would recommend it.

    I use PasswordSafe to store my passwords. Then I can store even non-web related passwords (such as for my TrueCrypt volumes).
    http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/

    I only wish there was an Android app for it...

    I have used Abine for quite awhile now after reading about it on Cnet and really like the ease and simplicity of its format. Not only does it store my logins and passwords, it also blocks and removes Ad Networks and Web trackers as has been mentioned above. It's a non-intrusive program and I would highly recommend it. All my passwords are encrypted on my system, but can be hidden or shown according to my preferences.

    If you are looking to save all your web passwords, then try xmarks. They offer bookmark synchronization, search enhancement and web discovery based on sites bookmarked by users as well as password storage. The best thing about xmarks is that it works on all the major browsers and is free for basic usage. Many people have used xmarks and so have I.
