Password Managers eg Robo Form (Free version). Are they any good? How reliable and secure are they? Has anyone tried Robo Form? Comments please.

Nothing is as secure as the inside of your head.

Nothing is as secure as the inside of your head.Or using an indexed notebook to record such things. Safe from computer whoopsies taking out your stored list of passwords forever. ;)

I recomend Password Safe.

NOT "Passwordsafe", It appears to be unrelated and I think dubious!

Password Safe is "open source" therefore FREE. I find it intuitive, easy to use and I feel SAFE.

The programmers who are responsible for it warn not to loose the master password because there is no back door. They can't help you. the program never tries to connect to the internet, either. It is in version 3.5 now.:)

You can learn about it here.
http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/

Download it here.
