    Roboform only intergrates with IE Browser, which is no good for me..as I use Opera. As a password Manager I use Keepass it is freeware it is also encrypts the passwords http://www.keepass.info/ it also has a good password generator and intergrates with Opera browsers.

    I forgot to mention it has to be as easy to use as possible so the less options the better.

    Also is there somewhere a specific thread discussing this? It may be a bit old i don't mind.

    Thanks for the responses Ron n Carver.

    Actually Roboform integrate with many browsers scroll down and you´ll see which.

    But I agree that if you dont want to use (or cant) Roboform, then keepass is good. A password should be difficult but difficult passwords are hard to remember so keepass comes in handy since it is free.

    Personally i use hashpass for making my passwords. The full version isn't free but it allows me to easily make and remember complex passwords and securely enter them into my browser.

    KeePass

    Its an encrypted database along with an password generator. Highly recommended by everyone I've ever asked. Free, Open Source. Stick with the 1.x branch (1.10 I believe is current.)

    You can use it just as a password generator, however to me it makes little sense to do that since you'll most likely never remember a generated password without recording it somewhere.

    Also supports "One Time Use" Passwords.

    If you don't believe me on recommendations, search the forums here.

    Keepass and Passwordsafe are both very good programs. The only problem is they generate random passwords. If I don't have the program with me or it won't run on the platform I'm using at the time, how will I be able to get my password when I'm not on my computer.

    People may also want to look at SuperGenPass (works in most browsers, has a mobile version, works on the iPhone, etc. and generates as long a password as you want based on the domain name of the web site you are going to and a master password you supply).
