Recommendations for a password program(13 posts)
One caution on using password managers that store your passwords in the cloud.
Yes, I think most of them use encryption and are pretty secure, but remember: YOU have no control over security, THEY do.
If you store your passwords locally (I'm thinking of KeePass, but there are plenty of others), preferably on removable media so you can take it out when you're on line (and thus be completely secure), YOU will have control over YOUR password security.
If those cloud servers are ever hacked (unlikely, but possible), you are screwed.
At the end of the day, you have to decide if you want to put YOUR security in someone else's hands, or keep control of it yourself. Personally, I prefer to control my security MYSELF.
