KeePass: Free, cross-platform, portable, no cloud garbage.
i used a lot of those things over the years but i settled down lately with TreeDBNotes Pro, which is a PIM (Personal Information Manager):
sections of the database can be encrypted, including of course the Password Organizer.
also comes with a password generator which is a nice convenience to have inside a PIM.
I think it's best to keep away from RoboForm. I had a "lifetime" license from them, they broke their license agreement with no warning and attempted to extort more money from all their lifetime license holders. The company is not trustworthy.
This thread is still alive? Anyways, LastPass and my brain.
I love Lastpass.
At the moment None.
How do you remember all your different passwords?
Sticky Pro for finance stuff, Opera password manager behind master password for the rest.
I am using none.
Probably should get with it and find one that I like.
None, just a good memory.
recently replaced Lastpass with Keepass.
And what happens then? You just forget about your accounts?
Have you tried LastPass? You'd surely like it.
I have been using Roboform pro/everywhere, for many years now, and is still a happy user. Have of course tried other password managers, but have always in the end returned to Roboform.
Any reason for the replacement? Or is it the usual distrust issue on the cloud?
Oh you're just being modest.
What happens then is that I usually push the "have you forgot your password?" button and a new temporary pass get's sent to my email
Which is a PITA. I used to do that all the time since i have so many accounts until i started using Keepass!
One of my "must" have software.
Yeah if it happens once a week then I am sure it can be a PITA
I can still handle it, but the password manager may be like the non existent ad-blocker wich I may be forced to use sooner or later.
Im fine with Keepass since the DB is stored locally so i still "feel" safe.
Now the thing is, i dont store my important account passwords in Keepass, only forums, websites and games. All of my important accounts pass are memorized. (Which i still forget from time to time if i dont use the account for a couple months)
Yeah if I would start using one they surely would need to be stored locally, you never know when an online database breach is going to happen these days.
I also follow @Noob's way of only storing my usual non-important sites in LastPass.
As @Noob already mentioned, it's a dear PITA what you do. Why resist password manager? Why not try it now? Just try KeePass and it'll save a lot of time and energy. I only recommend LastPass and KeePass.
Am using Roboform Pro for many years.
However . . .
a) their reporting module is relatively poor: exporting data to Excel (i.e. 1 login per row) is not possible
b) simlarly, their exporting module (only .htm and only the login-URL, but no login details)
c) they seem to be able to import from LastPass (CSV), KeePass CSV, NIS (CSV), 1Password text and SplashID CSV alright.
On the other hand.. should you wish to switch to another password manager, then I donot know if the other pw managers can import Roboform data, considering the limited export features of Roboform.
I did nót test this element!
d) their database allows textfields to be added -per- login, i.e. one by one, you may add an extra field (if desired). it is not possible to create an extra field for all logins in 1 step.
for example: once you create a new forum account, somewhere, Roboform will save the login/user-id and password, rightfully so.
However, I would like the email address saved as well - the email is always presented, when registering, or changing the password, or email address.
Reason is that I use multiple email addresses and once I change from ISP, I need to update the forum-email addresses. It would then be nice to have a list which email addresses are used at which forums.
I am using the desktop version of Roboform Pro.
Not sure though what to choose should I need to switch to a password manager for tablets. They all seem to save the passwords in the cloud.
Have not seen a really decent side by side review of the latest versions of the leading password managers paying attention to this in the cloud saving of logins and or master pw.
later: also the costs should be considered (I found this one on Infoworld, review titled: Review: 7 password managers for Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, and Android)
