    Hi Guys!
    I am searching for the software which effectively manages passwords in my system. It’s very inconvenient to login again and again in numerous websites. Is there any software which will help me in this? So please let me know.
    Thanks!

    I have used Roboform for a long time. It costs money. They have regular updates whenever Firefox versions change. Once you get used to it, it is hard to browse without it.

    I have read that some recommend the free keepass but I dont know if it is as convinient as Roboform with its toolbar in IE and Firefox though.

    Opera browser has a free built in password manager for this purpose, personally, rightly or wrongly I would not trust something like this to store sensitive passwords such as banks, but for ordinary websites its great. It's called the Wand. see tutorial video here

    and brief description

    I've never been crazy about browser password management. IMO, because of the popularity of IE, FF and Opera, if there is a weakness in their password manager, someone will try to exploit it.

    I lean toward using other programs for password control. Especially ones that can be used from a USB flash drive (separate from the PC.) My thoughts for portable versions are, Paid: RoboForm2Go, Free: KeePass.

    Another vote for Opera's Wand. I too don't use it for sensitive sites, but for all other sites, it's awesome because it can store multiple usernames and passwords for each site if required.

    I believe some of the newer laptops with fingerprint readers have the ability to use a thumbswipe in place of passwords; but I've never personally tried it.

    I'm using Norton Internet Security 2008. I'm feeling very safe with its login management.

    I use my head to store passwords. Love to see a hacker or some malware get into that.

    Maxthon is a browser. I think he just wants to manage his passwords. See the link in my reply above. :)
