    @ Joe That sounds good – maybe I’ll check it out. I’m pretty happy with my LockBox for now … but its always good to know your options. Roboform does seem a bit pop-up crazy – maybe I just haven’t figured out its settings. But I kind of gravitate toward intuitive software. The less help-file reading needed, the better.

    In the beginning of my web adventure i created an xcl spreadsheet to put all of my passwords, keywords, and everything else one have to store to use sooner or later. Now it’s becoming too filled with stuff and uneasy to navigate, also everytime i need some informaton i have to run the program. Maybe it’s time to switch to something simpler but more adapt.

    This looks pretty cool. I’ve recently switched from roboform over to lastpass.com it’s pretty good.

    Doesn’t pop up crazy like, and I don’t need to be on my machine to use it, it’s all stored secure online.

    thanks for this

    I definitely need something along these lines.. too much info to keep up with!

    I’d also like to have an easy way for family to be able to access all of my info in case something ever happened to me!

    Thanks for the tips!

    I have to admit – I had the Lockbox on my harddrive for a long time – maybe a year, before I opened it up to see what it was. During that time I probably lost hundreds of hours (and some software too) for lack of it. The good thing is that there is no learning curve and once you have installed it it is very easy and fast to use. You just make a habit of storing your data there instead of all over the place. You don’t even have to move all of your old passwords over straight off the bat.

    I still have my passwords in mind. No need for such programs. Sure it’s a good option, but till now there is no need.

    It is great tool.
    Security is the major problem.
    It is cool that we are store our important data one place.

    In this new Hi-Tech world, sometimes it is more prudent to record your passwords and account numbers somewhere other than on a computer. Unless you are most excellent at router security and have your system totally secured, you are vulnerable to attack. Most good hackers know how to bypass all common security features, browse around your computer, take what they need and you will not ever know they were even there. This does not mean that they will use what they find. Chances are they never will because they are looking for specific information in a random way. But the fact that they can should alarm you.

    I understand that saving passwords somewhere is a great idea so you just have to memorize the locker software password to access all these passwords, I’ve used a few softwares on my Symbian phone but never used such application on my PC, it helps to remember which sites you’re subscribed or signed up too as well, there are many useful sites which we forget after some time.

    @ Ryan – I agree. This software also helps me keep track of all my memberships, which is pretty important!
