    Hey everyone,
    So I did search on this, and found some threads, but they were all old.

    My question is simple: I'm looking for a free, safe, good password application to keep all my passwords and other account info organized.

    I've been using just a word doc, but I'm just starting to get a little scared with that since it holds really important stuff. Plus, it's not well organized.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you

    KeePassX is my choice for cross-platform free password management. I use it on Mac and Windows, which was a necessity for me.

    Pastor is one of my all-time favourite free Mac apps — simple, intuitive, launches quickly.

    Pastor seems much simpler, but maybe not quite as secure.

    I'll second KeePassX as a "decent" app for cross platform. It's ugly, but it works.

    Personally, I couldn't live without 1Password (I know it's not free)...just saying ;)

    Actually funny you say that about 1Password, because I just got it.. I had enough with all the free ones, and just splurged. Is there an iPhone app too?
