    I use different passwords for different websites. So, I store all my passwords in a .txt file then .rar it with a password. This is the easiest and noobiest method I'm using to store passwords. Some people use password managers to store their passwords. Is there any good method you suggest me to store passwords? Thanks.

    I use KeePassPortable. It protects all your passwords with one master password and is really easy to use.

    This is what I'm about to use - http://keepass.info/. It's certainly not the nicest UI wise, and it's nothing special, but I've heard some pretty solid reviews from other developers who have delved into the security field more than myself.

    In my brain, i use 5 different variants, and most sites give you 5 chances before they lock you out for x amount of time, So if i forgot teh password, I know it it will be any of these 5 passwords I use, and I store them no where but in my brain

    Just use RoboForm and back that up by putting all of your PWs onto an Excel spreadsheet. It's easy peasy. Some people use LastPass but I uninstalled way back win and opted for RoboForm.

    With RoboForm, you can automatically login to any of your accounts with no more copying and pasting. And not just your websites, ANY accounts and virtually anything that needs to be logged into online.

    This one is funny Sapo; what happens if you hit your head? :nurse:

    Roboform for passwords and all filling in forms with the ability to handle multiple personalities. Best timesaving $15 I ever spent.

    For me I code the password with formula....
    Lets say its 'yahoo'
    Count the letters in yahoo : 5
    Now remove any letter from word 'yahoo' and put 5 instead.
    Ya5oo, 5ahoo, y5hoo etc
    Sometime minimum 6 letter is required in pwd.
    In that case what I do is repeat tha number like 55ahoo, ya55oo, yah55o

    No any software required. Haha

    PS : Don't try to open my bhw id with this formula cause I use this type of formula in non-important signups only :blink:

    Using KeePass Portable version, it's good so far.

    LOL! I use 4 different passwords, strong passwords for good websites and weak for bad websites.

    Will try RoboForm too, thanks for your suggestion. :)

    Never heard of LastPass, will give a try.

    That's enough if you've less passwords to store! :p

    Will try Last Pass :)

    Thanks, will try RoboForm.

    LOL! Good idea, but You've to check all the passwords to login, sometimes it may blocks you. :p

    Thanks!

    Never heard about this, will google and try! :)

    LOL! Thanks. :D

    Give Splash ID a try. It has a PC/Mac and iDevice/Droid app that syncs really well. It is well worth its price.

    I have a lot of passwords that are all close but not exact. It is secure enough that I trust it will all of my credit card numbers and all private data.

    It's nice having all of the data at one place.

    zipping a txt file is old school. Give it a try.

    First I always generate my passwords in a fashion that they compile world safety standards. Passwords should include azAZ!1-9 (small and capital letters, signs, numbers) and should be 14 character or longer. So I have a generator that makes these passwords for me automatically.

    Since I'm a 3D designer, I have a lot of computers because of my render farm requirements. I always keep an old machine handy. It's offline, always powered down and I power it up just for single uses. All my important data (banking, paypal passwords etc) are stored on that machine, and the HDD firmware is password-locked.

    Oh and it doesn't matter actually how you store the passwords. From a hacker's point of view i'm telling you that passwords are rarely stolen form files. They are most often found by means of keylogging, live - while you're typing/copying it, so there's no real protection. Password-storing softwares won't help you much. If you're infected, a hacker will still see the password once you use it, regardless of where it's pulled from.
