What are some solutions you all use to keep track of several passwords without using the same password multiple places?keypass
is the best, if you are willing to set it up.(easy set up.. just complex if you want as much functionality as the next solution.. basically you have to store your password file online, at a site you control but having it on usb is good but you couldnt have access to it if you didnt have your usb but did have a connection to the web)lastpass
is great, it will generate random passwords for you, keep track of multiple accounts, and automatically fill in forms and auto log you into nearly every site. You can have access to your passwords as long as you can get a web connection. This isnt as good as keypass as it is a third party holding onto your passwords, if they go down for the day, you are screwed, if they get hacked you are screwed. But so far they have been exemplary. They had some odd network traffic and without knowing if they had been actually hacked they suggested everyone changes their master passwords, which was the proper thing to do, but which most corps dont do.
there are also some interesting paper passwords cards
last you can also come up with simple algorithms, instead of passwords.
the following example is too simplistic but it is too give you an idea.
Like a pass for this site could be Bitcointalk$321 and for bitparking could be Bitparking$321
you can see with a simple algorithm, you can make up unique passes for each site and yet have a way to remember them.
This is too simple as I said but it is easy to make so complex that you cant recognize that the pass is based on an algorithm. This is how I have done it for years.
here is a slightly more complex example to show you.
Bitcointalk is the site.
1. mix in 987654321 every other letter.
looking complex but not enough.
2. If the number to the right of the letter is odd Go down 3 letters, if even go up 2 letters. If neither, leave it..
now my pass is looking good and yet if I forget it, i can recalculate it at any time and yet someone finding that pass wont know it is made by algorithms, or the site it is for. And you can keep making your algorythm more complex, or use different rules to make the password more complex.. and all you have to do is remember your algorythm.
it can be as simple as go up a letter down a letter and mix in 123$%&789 and every other latter capitalized.
so bitparking becomes a1J2s3Q$z%S^j7J8m9F.. looks good. for a lot of sites you will need to select only the first few letters.. cause they suck, but it will still work for you.. you can add a code to remind you like double 8s to say cut off here a1J2s3Q$z88%S^j7J8m9F
