Passwords

Lets start with Passwords… we all have ’em… we all need ’em… and they are out of control!  My preference for storing all of those passwords is a free little program from CounterPane called Password Safe.  It allows you to store all of your passwords in one safe, encrypted, location.  You must remember one password in order to access the safe, but once you are in you have all of your passwords nicely listed and arranged.  It also has the very nice feature of creating random passwords for you to increase the general strength of your passwords.

When you need to log into something simply open password safe, scroll down until you locate the one you need, double click on it and now you can simply paste it into the password box in your application.  Memory is cleared so it will not remain there for some nefarious thief to steal later.

Very very useful!  Cudos to CounterPane for making this and making it available to the general public for free.
