Password Managers

A password manager is a good way to make sure you remember your passwords without having them physically written down where they can be stolen. While there is always a risk of your password manager file being stolen should you become infected with a trojan or such like, a password manager stores your passwords encrypted with the safest technology available on your hard drive, so you only need to remember the one password that unlocks your file.

A free, open source password manager is KeePass. KeePass supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES, Rijndael) and the Twofish algorithms to encrypt its password databases, the same algorithm used by the banking industry.

Another free password manager is provided by Comodo, who also provide website security for online purchasing. The Comodo ivault is stored on their server, rather than on your local hard drive.
