Website databases seem to crack like eggs these days with many sites being cracked and information being stolen.
Mt.Gox obviously - but not just that lately gaming services websites have been getting cracked too: Codemasters, Bethesda, Epic Games, and of course Sony.

It seems, Databases can get cracked and there is no telling which ones are at risk. Even the companies w/ millions of revenues.

The problem is that in this kinda time - Accounts are freaking everywhere... and I dont know how to generate passwords for them all.
While my Mt.Gox password was unique, some of my other passwords are not. This is indeed bad - so I need to change it.

Trying to have unique passwords for all various accounts that I can remember has become to much. I cant do it anymore - I need software or services.


Soo... Lets hear it from the people who do use password managers - what do you do and how do you do it?

That could be considered secure, if you password to get into it is complicated.

Yea, it's pretty complicated and long, but I type it everyday so I won't forget it for sure.
