Keep all of your online passwords in one safe place

How often do you find yourself hitting the "forgot password" link on a website because you've forgotten your login details?

If you regularly forget passwords because you followed security advice and don't keep a written record of your username/password combination then Password Safe might be the answer to your problems.

As more and more website require usernames and passwords users are trying to remember an ever growing list of login details for shopping sites, email access, banking and so on.

With Password Safe all you have to do is create and remember a single master password in order to unlock and access your entire user name/password list.

By using this software you are keeping your passwords secure and encrypted yet easily retrieved when needed. If you don't have a problem remembering passwords because you keep a list in your drawer by the computer or use the same password over and over again across a wide spectrum of websites then Password Safe (or some other secure method of logging passwords) is a MUST HAVE!

Maintaining unsecure lists, hand written or in a text document on your desktop, is a security risk - as is using the same password over and over again, especially if it is easy to guess (for example your child's name). Ideally a password should be difficult to 'crack' also so try to use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols where possible.

Obviously, the more random your password is the more difficult it will be for YOU to remember! This is where software like Password Safe comes in.

Keeping passwords safe protects your online identity safe from email to social networking, financial & retail.

You wouldn't keep your credit card pin number next to your credit card so do away with your password list which is stored in a Word document or stuffed in the top drawer of your desk and start using Password Safe - it's FREE and SECURE.
