What is a Password Safe?
Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password to log on to your computer, access e-mail accounts, online passwords (like website member accounts), etc. etc. etc. The list is endless.
The more complex a password is, the more secure it is, but then it’s hard to remember. Also, you should use different passwords for each account If you the same password everywhere and someone gets that password then you have a real problem. So you have lots of passwords. A lot of complex passwords. You may have them written down on scraps of paper, or in a text document. This not the best idea.
Fortunately, there are a couple of free open source password managers, to help you manage your passwords in a secure way. You can store all your passwords in a secure, encrypted database, protected by one a master password. So you only have to remember one single master password to unlock the database.
