    Any recommendations on a software program to keep passwords?

    Speaking of passwords, NBC Nightly News reported that the password security company, probably VeriSign, has been compromised so everyone should change their passwords at least on their financial sites.

    We use 1Password. It syncs across all my devices (phone, iPad, macbook) and is easy to use. I have also read that there are several good free programs available.

    Yes KeePass

    I use it on the job and at home! Its a lifesaver. Recommended by and used by DoD for Top Secret applications.

    Its totally free, and encrypted. You just need to remember the password to protect the file where your database is stored. You can store it on your machine, or a flash drive.

    Use and Recommend KeePass.





    What is KeePass?
    Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your e-mail account, your website's FTP password, online passwords (like website member account), etc. etc. etc. The list is endless. Also, you should use different passwords for each account. Because if you use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password you have a problem... A serious problem. The thief would have access to your e-mail account, website, etc. Unimaginable.

    KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish). For more information, see the features page.


    Is it really free?
    Yes, KeePass is really free, and more than that: it is open source (OSI certified). You can have a look at its full source and check whether the encryption algorithms are implemented correctly.






    • KeePass supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES, Rijndael) and the Twofish algorithm to encrypt its password databases. Both of these ciphers are regarded as being very secure. AES e.g. became effective as a U.S. Federal government standard and is approved by the National Security Agency (NSA) for top secret information.
