    Me neither! I love those "put all the information you want to keep safe in this little box, and we will protect it for you" thingies.

    Does that make a lick of sense to anyone? Not to me!o_O

    Short poll, huh? :)

    Yep I use roboform as i have about 200 passswords for different websites/banks etc

    All have minimum of 10 digit random characters, except on a couple of forums and I haven't got a hope in hell of remembering them otherwise, but roboform store is encrypted & uses a master password

    I use the security of my brain to remember my passwords. No one else can find out the passwords as they are randomly generated then memorized. And an individual password for everywhere a password is required.

    I store my passwords and other sensitive information on my Palm T2 and on my PC. The program uses encryption to store the data and is synchronized. :)
    If I were to keep all those passwords/data in my brain, I surely would forget a lot. :doubt:

    Hello everyone,

    Been quite a long time since last I posted. Been rather busy. ;)

    Try using Any Password to store sensitive info in encrypted folders. You can get it here: http://www.romanlab.com/apw/index.html

    It's freeware and comes without any strings. :D

    The one that comes with FireFox is good enough for me since you can set a master password.

    I don't currently use one, but I was thinking of trying Roboform. The thing I was wondering about is if the first time I put the paswords in Roboform, and had a keylogger, it would catch them, so I was wondering if anyone knows a way you could put the passwords in Roboform (which can be put on a floppy disk or USB flash drive) outside of your computer and then after their on the floppy/USB flash drive then run them on your computer.

    Is there a way you could use one of those little portable PDA type computers (some come with a minature keyboard) and hookup the USB flash drive to it then put the passwords in and be completely safe from a possible keylogger (or other similar spying programs) on your computer?

    Once the passwords are in Roboform (on the USB flash drive/floppy) I think they would be safe, but it's just the times you want to put them in that I'm worried about someone intercepting them.
