Hi there

I'm trying to locate a 'free' password manager for my mother and her iPad (1) that will also Sync password data across to an iMac with OS 10.6. Personally, I use 1Password between my iOS device and desktop but I would like to see if I can find a simple, free (if not cheap) solution.

Any thoughts from anyone?

I'm not really sure there is anything free. I'm also not so sure I would trust something as important as a password manager to a free program.

1Password is probably the best solution.

Yes, that seems like an OBVIOUS form of social engineering malware to collect people's passwords and foster identity theft. I would avoid free password software like the plague (at least without Little Snitch, which I don't use).
