    Hi Noob
    What is it that you didn't like about KeePass?
    I have found it to be literally a game-changer.
    Life online before compared to life online after is like two different experiences.
    KeePass makes logging into forums, shopping sites, banks and work-related sites faster, easier and more secure.
    But it didn't go that way for you... so I wonder why. :)

    Well to be honest, Keepass was GOOD and i liked it (I never mentioned i didn't)
    What happens is that most of my online accounts (Forums etc) all have similar passwords with small variations (Because i consider them all regular accounts with nothing important) so instead of going through all the Keepass software just to pull the accounts why not just type it xD

    Oooh, oooh (raises hand), I have an answer to that!
    Because KeePass takes one mouse click, and it is encrypted.
    Plus there's no forgetting.
    I tell ya, the convenience is superb.
    The security an added bonus. :thumb: :cool:
    (I realize that I could be talking about practically any password manager program here with these reasons. Nevertheless, KeePass has attributes that set it apart from the rest, that I am not mentioning.)

    You can only do that if you don't share your computer, else, a password manager can really do the job done.

    Several years ago I had a period of insomnia where I barely slept for a week and after a night of tossing and turning sat down to boot my my computer but couldn't remember the password to save my life.

    I finally "let my fingers do the walking", and from typing it in so many times was able to type the 9 character pattern out without consciously thinking about it.

    I wrote it down once I did get in and sleep much better these days. :p
