Thread: Who uses a password keeper?

    Default Who uses a password keeper?

    There was an article in the Deseret News that got me thinking about it again. I didn't trust them for a while, but I think maybe they've developed enough that I could go with one of them.

    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    I use the free version. It is sufficient for my needs.

    KeePass on my local machine at home. I use an algorithmic password so I typically don't need to remember them all because I can reconstruct them based on the algorithm; however, I keep them all stored in KeePass because:

    1) My algorithm has changed over time and sometimes I forget which one I need.
    2) I don't use an algorithmic username so I sometimes forget that.

    And I NEVER have the browser remember my password and auto-fill it in for me.

    I keep all of my passwords in a Word document so that my wife can easily look them up when needed. I figure that my home machine is sufficiently secure that it's not worth worrying about keeping them there.

    I have the browser remember the passwords on web sites that don't really matter - like this one. Any site with financial information needs me to type the password in. Again, it's on my own machine and I trust Firefox and Chrome to keep them well enough protected from rogue websites. If I ever see anything about someone finding a way to get those passwords remotely, I'll have to change ALL of my passwords and change my ways. So far so good. (And I study computer risks regularly, so I wouldn't miss something like that happening.)

    Over the christmas break I went through all my passwords and made it so I have a unique one for every website. Now that iOS allows tighter integration with password managers such as LastPass, I can do this and still have simple easy access both on my laptop and my phone. My wife and I share the account, so she has access to everything if I get hit by a truck.

    I have a spreadsheet that tracks everything important, but I'm going to get rid of it to tighten up security, and make it a little easier to access everything.

    I'm on the trial version of Lastpass right now. It's going to be a little bit of work to get everything set up the way I want. It was able to import everything I'd saved in Chrome, so that along with my spreadsheet will bring everything together in a more organized and secure way. No more recycling the same passwords at different sites. It's the smart move today.

    If I like it well enough, I'm probably going to buy the family version and get my kids doing the same thing. Oh yeah, I use Mach 5 razers as well.
