    I use Steel.app for keeping passwords encrypted on the mac, however I am having trouble finding anything that looks safe to use for PC, preferably XP Pro.


    Does anyone here use a password manager on PC? If so, what is the name of it?

    The best by far is RoboForm Pro I just wish they had it for Mac.

    To just manage passwords, use KeePass - it's open source, multi-platform and free.

    http://keepass.info - get the Windows version from the downloads section.


    On the other hand, if you need something to manage passwords as well as fill web forms on the Mac, 1Password is great.

    I agree. I've been using Roboform for several years and it works very well. I was surprised and disappointed when I discovered there was no Mac version.

    One more note. If you use Firefox there is an add-on called Foxmarks that lets you synchronize your bookmarks among your various computers. I've been using it for about 10 days and it seems to be working well. FF also has a (free) password manager thatI i assume would work on both PCs and Macs. I've been reluctant to try it; maybe it's just paranoia although I'm very happy with Roboform on my two PCs.
