Windows 10: Need a good password organizer. Solved

  1.    11 Mar 2017 #1

    Need a good password organizer.


    Looking at a notebook that I've written down all my sign-on and passwords down in, I realized a few things. One, this isn't safe, I'm using too many "easy" passwords so I don't forget what they are. Secondly, while writing all this information down seems safe, just one slip of the hands and there goes several pages of passwords now soaked in coffee.

    What I'm looking for is a password organizer, that I can keep all my information in, but not only just the password and sign in name, some places have special pins, or secret information that's also occasionally requested by particular sight. You know, questions like first pet, your grammar school, or mother's maiden name. Suggestions?

    I have used this tool for years.
    Password Dragon – Free, Easy and Secure Password Manager for Windows, Mac and Linux
    This program features ways to store all the little bits of information such as security question answers and details.
    The built-in password generator is quite versatile as well.
    It stores locally in an encrypted file and you only need to remember the Master password.
    Since it is local and not cloud-linked, you are not subject to potential hacks on the Internet.

    I'm sure you have all heard the phrase, "Once burned, swice shy!". I've been hit with issues over the years, and cussed at myself for not having back-ups. Now that I work from home having back-ups of back-ups seems more applicable to me. I now have several recommendations for a good password program. I will look at each to check for ease of use and other features. But I'd like to know this is well.

    Although I'm done with having a special notebook with all my passwords in it, I still see the benefit of having a hard copy printed and I can toss that into my safe along with other important paperwork I have. Since like I said, now believe in redundancy I'll also want to keep an usb memory stick with this data on it as well. Sometime in the near future I also wish to set up my own personal clouds off my router.

    I know this is long winded, but what I want to know, is of the three recommendations so far, do any of them offer a back up feature?

    I’ve tried lots of password managers and Sticky Password is the most intuitive program of its kind. The free version serves me well since I don't want any cloud base synchronization.

    You could print your passwords and keep the data in a safe place. Store the passwords in a password protected Word file on a separate USB stick protected by Bitlocker. Also keep that USB stick in safe place.
