    Password Program

    Does anyone have a password program they would recommend? Everyplace you go now you have to log in. With my bank and such sometimes you have to play 20 questions just to prove you're you.

    I'd like to find something inexpensive or free that will remember the passwords and all the other stuff in the verification questions. Would be even better if it would insert them automatically.

    Firefox's password keeper works pretty good most of the time, but more and more sites are coding their sites not to allow browsers to capture your password etc.

    Thanks,

    Holdcard

    I like Roboform a lot. It syncs with my palm (with other devices also) so i have my passwords with me and for web browsing.

    For web browsing I use Firefox and let it fill in the logons and passwords. It does a much better job than Internet Explorer at remembering passwords, very rarely do I have to remember these.

    I made a WORD document that contains all my passwords. I named it something no one would look at. When I can't remember a password, I just look at that .doc
    Works for me.

    There is a USB plug-in that will hold all of your passwords in memory. It works off of biometrics and takes your fingerprint. Supposedly it works really well.

    I use Yes its Free - Freeware download Site - it is open source and portable. You can stick in on a thumb drive or something and access it from any computer.

    Also allows for management or password types. A folder for work, one for banking, etc.

    I use pwsafe, Password Safe and I have to remember passwords for sites, swithces, routers, PBX, servers, etc and they have all been safe for me.

    But that is not secure, all your passwords are in then open.

    Philman already mentioned roboform. I have been using it for about 5 years and it is great. I used the free version for a while and then bought the Pro version for my computer at work and at home. Upgrades are free with the purchase. It offers a number of other good features and has good encryption.

    Firefox uses a master password to encrypt your stored form info. IE does not.

    And for those people who keep passwords in a simple file, you should really invest in some crypto software. Encrypt the text file you use to save your info, then at least you are down to one password to remember.

    Id recommend roboform. Nothing really comes close to comparison and its easy to backup your passwords.

    While its not free, it is worth the price tag. There ways to get it for free but I wont get into that.

    Can't rember where I saw it but it was a random number generator tht goes on your key chain and your homeputer is running the same numbers and you have 10 seconds between flips to sign onto with just the number on key fob.

    It's called Keychain. It's included free with Mac OS X.

    Oh, you meant a program that you can buy for Windows? Sorry...
