Website logins passwords and managers

A lot of people don't believe in them but password managers like LastPass do help you not to use the same password twice. I am sure many out there just believe it won't happen to them others use imaginative techniques.

How do you go about keeping your logins safe online?

If you have only a limited number of places you use passwords for that can work for some. If you begin creating more online accounts like you have here, ad Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, another forum or two...and so on and you can see how some people have a lot of different accounts before they realize it...Just ask Zukerberg what can happen

I have a system to be honest. My password is woven with the name of the site.

So for instance if my password is Password1x! i then add the site like this PFaascsewbooorkd1x!

Sometimes backwards sometimes forwards.

For me, I actually list out all my logins on a piece of paper and update them from time to time. This method worked for me ever since, so I think I'm going to stick to it for now.

A lot of people do it like that or similar and it works for them. Whatever works and keeps things safest is the way to use

It all started a couple of years ago and yes it is exactly what I have discovered to be a difficult task to handle. What I try to do is have a set of usernames and passwords for only "work related stuff" and then have another set related username and password for "hobby like stuff" and then another set for personal stuff and ect. My memory so far is good and it has worked well.

However if something is forgotten, typically anything can be reset via email...provided the email itself can be accessed.

I just remember mine. I can't write mine down or save on my phone using an App as my personal phone is my work phone and we have a company policy for team leads to follow for work phones.

In the event my cell phone is stolen. I can login to any computer and wipe the phone a.s.a.p. I backup my phone daily at home.

I happen to use KeePass, the mobile free version. I run it off a USB when it's needed; otherwise, I don't bother plugging it in. That way, if somebody accesses my computer, they cannot access any private files. There's not even any indication that a password manager is used.

It came highly recommended, and was regularly mentioned in PC Magazine as one of the top programs available. It is open source, so people can verify what it does, and uses strong encryptation. I regularly back up the database so it is safe in case something happens to the USB; by itself, the database is useless without the passphrase.

There are other password managers out there, including several paid ones with more features, but this is adequate for me. It is definitely better than what I was doing before. I finally broke down and starting using a password manager because I had over 150 accounts (seriously) with mostly the same password. Online forums, email accounts, blogs, online services, Amazon, PayPal, local library, utility bills, banks, etc. Now I have randomly-generated passwords for everything, 20 - 25 characters each, including special characters, etc. I just click the "Generate Password" button, and it spits out a new random password whenever I need a new one.

And users can create different databases for different groups of accounts. For example, you can keep all your banking info in one database and all your forum accounts information in another database. When you want to log in to a forum, you can open the forum database while leaving the banking database closed. (Reduce the risk of a compromise even further.)

I'd be up the creek if I lost access to this program. That's why I back up the database in so many places.

I just use the keychain feature within the Apple ecosystem. It suggests secure passwords every time you create/log in to an account & also syncs these across all your Apple devices. You can also create your own passwords & these too get synced across all your devices.

Remember that nothing is 100% foolproof and even the most secure home can be burglarized. Look at all the political email hacking scandals.

I like LastPass. Paid offers better encryption and security but free is OK as well.
Lets you use harder to crack passwords. If we have tons of sites and either use the same PW everywhere or the most commonly cracked it's a problem.
And one of the biggest dangers is 1 PW being cracked and so the intruder is able to get into all your accounts - it's like a master key.

But just remember, nothing is 100% foolproof

I often do not remember good things. So I have to save my password to a file on windows with personal security.

I use Google Chrome to remember my password, as I login to google chrome using my gmail id all my passwords are saved to cloud. I can use that at any pc no need to use third party password saving tools.
