Re: PASSWORD MANAGERS, anyone use them? Ideas? FREE ones or pay?
Identity Safe is included in Norton Internet Security.
It is GREAT, works perfectly, and only requires logging in with a single 'master' password at the start of each session. It stores not only usernames and passwords, but also identity cards that make filling out on line forms (name, address, phone number, e-mail address, etc.) a matter of a single click -
AND - when I bought a notebook computer, It makes it easy to transfer the entire file and all that information to the second one also.
I can't address the security of the program itself, because I have never had anyone get on my computer and TRY to break into it, and the Norton firewall protects me from outside hackers -
But in general, I think password programs are a good idea. Without them, it is very tempting to use the same password at multiple sites, and that is NOT a good idea. With this program, that temptation is removed -
