    Can anyone recommend a good password manager?

    I am looking for a really good application! (It can be free or cost money as long as it is a good app).

    I use Wallet and like it a lot.

    I can export the database back and forth between my desktops and keep them current.

    1Password

    I have about 400 passwords stored. I also have multiple passwords for one site. I think 1Password is well worth the money. It integrates well into Safari, Firefox, Flock, and I think Camino.

    I guess it is built into the system, free, allows you notes and categories, can take care of stuff for disk images, servers, etc. That must not be good :D

    How is it more convenient? Keychain is built in to Mac OS X and automatically works. No muss, no fuss. I'm curious to know what any other program can do that makes it more convenient than that, especially since they all begin with installing yet another program that's not made by Apple. What to they do that Keychain doesn't?

    For example, does 1Password remember passwords for things other than a web browser, like Keychain?

    Exactly! I must really be missing something here. Surely they do some great things that Keychain doesn't!?

    Can you have several different passwords for one web site? And does it also generate passwords for you?

    I haven't tried the first one, but I recall having two entries for AT&T after they bought SBC ... errr ... the other way around.

    And yest, it generates wonderful passwords.

    Why would I want more than one password for a web site? And I prefer to create my own passwords, so they're easier to remember (in case I want to go to sites when I'm not at my own computer).

    I have 6 gmail accounts. And several checking accounts with one bank. It's a necessity for me.

    hmmm, thanks!
    I'll have to play with it. Wonder if I could import my 1Password stuff?:confused:

    1Password synchronises with the iPhone/iPod touch unlike Keychain Access :p

    Thanks! I can understand that. I have multiple Gmail accounts, but I access them all with the Mail application. I can see if you use the web interface how having multiple login/passwords would be handy.
    I don't see a straightforward method of doing that, but I'll see what I can find.
    That's good to know, even though I have neither.

    It is a matter of personal choice. From my point of view, is more convenient because it allows me to use multiple passwords on one site. I can't live without this option.

    1password, hands down. Been using it for a long time. So easy to keep all my passwords there.

    Hmmm

    Keychain is good. But since I really move around a lot and I often use different computers, I've decided to store all my passwords in my Yahoo Email box. But I encrypt them a couple of times first before I do.

    1password FTW. It's not even close, in my book.

    All the same saved logins on Safari, Firefox, Camino and others.

    Saved "wallets" (credit card info), again available on all browsers.

    Multiple "identities" (home and work, for example) for filling out personal info forms. All browsers.

    Secure notes. My personal favorite.

    Save any form you want to save. Doesn't even have to be a login, wallet or identity.

    Syncs between multiple macs via MobileMe. Syncs to iPhone.

    My favorite app, at any price.
