    Getting to the point that passwords are barely manageable. Thinking about using a password manager. But I work daily on Mac OS, iOS, and Windows.

    What tools do you like/recommend?

    Thanks in advance,
    Chris

    I've got mSecure. It's pretty decent for my needs. My main problem is I keep forgetting to update it after my passwords expire and I change them. It has a desktop companion that syncs with the mobile version as well.

    I like SplashId since it has a desktop version and I can sync with that. I have used it since the first PDA and upgraded with each phone.

    I use 1password, though it syncs beautifully via icloud on iOS, it doesn't sync with icloud via the mac, but for a phone password management app you can't go wrong with 1password.

    LastPass for me. Works well in Windows, iOS and OS X and syncs among all 3. It's free and gets great reviews.

    Currently I use 1Password for IOS, OSX, and Windows. Overall I like it, but I'm considering switching to LastPass to see how I like it because it has a better Windows client.

    You can sync it with Dropbox . It works wonders for me! I have a lot of passwords and now I can have a more secure password by generating ine with 1password and just copy it from the app

    I don't mind saying this in the latest thread on this subject--I really love 1Password and have been using it since I bought my first iMac in 2008. I use it on my Macs and iPhone--great way to manage passwords across multiple devices. The new version for Mac they are working on will allow sync through iCloud. And please don't get on them too hard about needing to buy the latest version in the app store when it comes out, Apple only allows iCloud sync for apps that are sold in their app stores.

    If anyone is interested, this Security Now podcast has an in-depth review of many if these suggestions and looks into their security (and lack of in some cases) well worth a listen before you go putting your important passwords into one of these things,

    What are the benefits of using these versus a spreadsheet to log all of your passwords?

    I'm thinking of trying one of these programs myself.

    For those of you who didn't want to read the whole transcript looking for the password manager reviews, here's the few that I saw mentioned in this thread.

    I use 1Password on OSx and IOS. It works great on OSx, but more difficult on IOS since you can't have an add-on for safari or chrome. I keep passwords and CC info and have a strong password. Part of the problem on IOS is entering a strong password - I'm not that used to the little keypad
