With so many different websites and tools needing userid and password, what tools do you use to 'safekeep' your password accesses?

i use lastpass. I know that this is not very safe, but convenient. KeePass more safe than lastpass, but convenient(

I think it was Vitalik who suggested the only safe way to keep a private key was to remember it - suggesting passwords are safest in your head.

I write all my passwords down in a book and hide it in my house. This is the safest option and I ALWAYS use MFA whether it's with Google Authenticator or text or a push notification that I simply press "Yes" or "No" to allow login. I really like the idea of those physical password drives that you have to have plugged into the computer in order to login, sounds really interesting. So you need the password and the physical drive plugged in.

Before, I used to use Dashlane for my passwords, but now that I'm on the paper method, I feel much safer. I know it can't be hacked plus I use pretty long passwords so I guess it's a good way to keep my typing skills up.  Grin

Ideally, having a different password for each site, and remembering them in your head would be best. But honestly, in a world where each website has a different, highly specific, password policy, it is hard to keep them all in mind. For Windows, KeePass is my favourite solution as a password management tool - simple, sturdy, no-bs kind of software. Whenever possible, I also aus two factor auth, to keep as safe as possible.

Why do you say LastPass is not safe?  I have been using it for years, and have never had a password stolen.

It's not open source. They were hacked one times (or two). + In LastPass were found few bugs.

safepass is a good app. You create one master password which when you log, logs you automatically to all accounts that you've assigned your "master" key on. check it out, very useful

I'd suggest using KeePass on a thumb drive you keep with you. The file can be labeled anything you like and they make portable versions of the software.

If by "safekeep" you mean keeping track and never forgetting about my passwords, then I am using a certain plug-in in Google Chrome named "Gumshoe".

Gumshoe is a simple plug-in which keep tracks of every username and password of every account that you log-in in any website. Gumshoe may also be used for hacking but I highly discourage the improper usage of it.

Gumshoe is a very user-friendly plug-in and it is not very complex to use and understand. I use gumshoe because I have been visiting many sites lately and I have the habit of using different passwords on my accounts so that if one of my accounts gets hacked, my other accounts won't be accessed.

i never saved my password on auto refill, and use to clean histories and cookies on my laptop..
i do have a notepad that is hidden on my computer and saved too in a folder that contain 20+ folders with each folder containing 10 decoy folders and then 5 then 3 then 2 folders then the notepad itself .. of course it looks so confusing but i can search my pad in just a simple search with the name on it which i know that is hard to know for others s:)

i have a list of my accounts in a spreadsheet here in my computer, and i update it immediately when i sign up another account. i think this is better for sake keeping cause if you write it on a piece of paper, it is vulnerable to get lost.

 Instead, my current recommendation is to use a storage program like LastPass, and that’s a fine option, unless you forget your password to LastPass, or as he points out, use a weak password for it, neither of which lead to good things. I once forgot my password to my very first computer and bricked it. Awesome learning experience, that. LastPass (http://lastpass.com) is an excellent tool for storing passwords and sharing passwords securely

Passwords are in notepad then printed on paper which I keep away from everyone.
I got printed table in excel for exchanges also where I write down on paper also usernames, passwords, pin codes or google auth codes etc...
In notepad I have only wallets, usernames and some passwords which are not critical for my exchanges.
I don't want to see dead HDD and loose everthing. Also everything is saved on 2 hdd drives at same time. Keeping file on dropbox or some online service is also ok.
