my friend's step-aunt makes $84 hourly on the computer. She has been fired for 9 months but last month her income was $8799 just working on the computer for a few hours. Go to this web site and read more linkpot.net/flurrying/

I've found my killer password manager with SBSH Safewallet:

Here's a sort of user review I did on it:

Why would you store all your encryption keys to all your personal data on someone else's computer????

Think about it. Can you at least. Personally verify the physical security protocols for the servers they use? Mmmmm

And are you knowledgeable enough to confirm how robust their program encryption is??? Mmmmm

Have you personally verified the integrity of the company/employees for being secuity risks or being outright on some criminal's payroll???? Mmmm

To my knowledge there has not been any class of business/government entity that has not been hacked or betrayed by an employee.

Personally, I think all this cloud storage stuff is nothing but a disaster waiting to happen for someone. I fully understand the convenience of, say 2 or 3 offices, corraborating on a basically non-secure report or project, then dumping it. I mean how can you even know where in the world the servers are even located.

I have always used a paid password mngr. I have never had a problem and I keep the actual passwords on a thumb drive and back them up to 2nd at least weekly. Every account has at least a 10 character password and no two accounts the same. Hey it's so stupid easy even I can do it. Never lost a password and that has been over several years and several computers.

Hey, has anyone seen a RSA token generator that works with a home computer? I am thinking of Blizzards authenticator but for a password safe...

Isn't using Keepass with Dropbox exactly the same thing, excluding the fact that everyone's passwords would be in the same place?

Well, hell, as long as it uses Norton Safe Web Protection it MUST be safe, right? Besides, they TOLD us it was safe. ;)

Norton is too big a target; people will always want to hack them.

Use Password Safe (http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/; ports exist for OSX, Linux, iOS, and Android) and Dropbox.

Um, didn't they just get hacked?

Yea... safe until a year from now, when we get a notice saying (like recently from Symantec), "Oops, DON'T use our software... someone stole the source code!"

Lastpass anyone? From what I understand they never get a copy of the stored passwords, only an encrypted blob. The blob gets decrypted over at the client machine. I have been using it for a while, although I still don't trust any password managers 100%. You can have MOST of your password for really sensitive stuff stored there, just leave out a few digits in the beginning or at the end of the password.

LastPass is free for most of its services; with a paltry $12 annual fee for full version (includes LastPass Mobile) which I'll bet is a lot less then Norton's product after free trial.

Also, reading the articles description of Norton's product, it sounds like they've just ripped off the exact same service that LastPass offers for free.

What am I missing here?

Or Keepass, I've been using it for the past year or so, works good so far.

You're is only ever used if you mean to say you are.

That's the rule. It's really nothing more complicated than that.

The same is true of they're (they are) and we're (we are).
