    I used to think I won't need any password manager, until then I came to this poll and heard people saying KeePass's merits. I tried it yesterday and I was impressed and still is. It makes my life so much easier. Thank you guys who recommend this amazing app.:thumb:

    Thanks for the tips Moontan. I've already enabled "Two-channel auto-type obfuscation" for my emails and important staff like that. But can you shed some light on the "secure desktop" stuff?:)

    I've been using keepass for a long time now and it's good to see that more and more people are starting to also use it. Currently I use it with dropbox and MiniKeePass for iPhone so I always have my passwords with me.

    There are passwords I remember because I use them on a daily basis. There are other password which I wrote down for services/accounts I don't use often.

    computers with older versions of Windows might not have it.
    i think Win XP does not have it installed by default.

    sure, but some people might have to use Keepass on a computer without .NET

    Hi,

    I use my Ironkey to store my passwords, don't think it can get better then that. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    My passwords contain 25 characters, are all different and all have uppercase and lowercase letters, special characters and numbers. For example: vmM#26JY7$b@&zK*QTF@5AM88

    Keepass are generated and stored. To facilitate filling of sites on my two computers (using the Lastpass) passwords are saved in the clouds and so I have autofill.

    All my passwords are scrambled by KeyScrambler Professional.

    Simple, safe and fast!
