Hey folks,

While nothing on the market yet is able to give you total immunity from security breaches, there are some very commonly discussed measures we can all take to be as safe as possible.

Having very complicated passwords is one way to protect your accounts, but it's impossible to memorize random strings of characters that are also unique for each site. Thus, the rise of password managers.

What password manager are you using and why?

Hopefully some folks who haven't yet discovered the joy of password managers may find reasons here to take the plunge. Personally, I've used LastPass and 1Password. Both worked great for my needs, but I swapped over to 1Password exclusively last year since I was having trouble getting LastPass to populated passwords into sites via my smartphone.

We'd love to get your thoughts on password managers, so chime in and share your knowledge!

I am what you might call a power user, so I use keepass. But I don't use that because it's offline of free or open source or any of the other benefits, only one reason keeps me using keepass: it's the only password manager where I don't need to type my master password in any of my devices. Let me explain.
I use Google drive to sinc the database and in all my devices I can use biometrics to access my database. Windows 10, Android, Mac and iOS. In fact, it's the windows part that's most important to me. I wrote a plugin called WinHelloUnlock so I can use my face scanner to unlock my windows database. And let me tell you, this is the ONLY way I've found in windows to go into a website in chrome, have a prompt to scan my face, hit ok and have everything filled up.

I use 1Password and have for many years. It syncs automatically among my iPhone, MacBook, and iPad. Keychain and Safari have their own synced versions on the devices. All three have password generators which can be adjusted by length and permitted symbols. They save new passwords automatically also. Other password managers probably do the same. For me 1Password is familiar and works without a problem.

I’m using 1Password as well. I’ve been using it for years, across my MacBook, ipad and iPhone. It now works with the fingerprint sensor on my mobile devices so it’s a piece of cake.

Another vote for 1Password. I have it installed on a couple of Macs, my phone and my wife's phone, our tablets, and my Win pc at home and at work. I like the secure notes section and the ability to share passwords with my wife and daughter. I've used it for years and have never had any problems with it and have never heard a compelling reason to switch to any other passwd manager. I know there are others out there with similar features, but again, nothing compelling to switch from what I already have setup everywhere.

Google Chrome, Saves password locally, feels more secure than having in on the web

A password book - a small address book that sits in a location in my office at home. Most of my passwords have a prefix that I don't write down. I've demoed a few virtual solutions, but they just don't seem to work for me - and they usually mean more junk mail or popping up and bugging me.
