Password Managers
« on: December 21, 2012, 05:29:22 AM »
Does anyone have a suggestion for a freeware password manager to keep all my passwords in a database with backup?
I already have lastpass for online use, but would like some options for a standalone program to hold all my info to keep perhaps on cd or other backup.

I use keepass too ... it's good to store passwords/data not directly associated with logging into a web site.

If you already use Lastpass you should check LastPass Pocket, their little-known standalone/offline desktop client.

"LastPass Pocket
Provides backup capability and offline access for your LastPass vault."

Chose "Windows" (I presume) instead of "Recommended" and then scroll to the very bottom:

Today I have discovered this password manager:

It seems very powerful.
I don't know if it's what Kycochise is looking for.

I'd missed this, thanks!

Me too :P - but it's not for everyone, since it's just a dumb notepad with encryption support - specifically, it doesn't (and never will) do form auto-filling nor any of all that, by design. Worth mentioning since OP mentions lastpass.

Which makes it harder to exploit, and is part of what I like about it. Simple elegant solutions are hard to find.

  I use Roboform password manager and form filler.  If you have 10 or less logins then RoboForm 7 is free.  I have the pro version even though I don't use but one profile.  It has a Sync option, however I've never used it and can't tell you how it works.  Not only does it work for internet pages, it also works for Windows forms.  There's way too much to list here, you can read about it here;

This link says to use an OS called 'Tails', and that Tails includes a password manager called KeePassX.
At this link, it says KeePassX is compatible with Mac OS X, and Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7, as well as Linux.
However, at this link, it says autotype is currently supported on Linux only; I presume 'autotype' means 'autofill'?

BTW, my main problem with OSs like Tails is that they don't allow you do easily modify them to change the browser background color to an off-white; and pure white background color burns my eyes out; which is why I use DimScreen as a stop-gap measure; but I prefer to change background color to something like 'light gray' which saves enormous eye strain.
IOW, Tails would be great if I could set it up to always run with light gray background in browser, and also if I could get it to play youtube and other vids.

That's a gripe for TOR Vidalia's built-in modified Firefox browser; it won't play youtube and refuses to be modified to do so.
