Hi all, I hope you've had a good Christmas!

I'm still getting used to using a mac and recently went looking for a program to hold all my passwords.

I decided on giving 1Password a go and it seems ok so far. I was wondering if you use anything different, could recommend another app from experience?

all the best
QUOTE Thanks

OS X has a built in password app called Keychain Access. Just do a quick spotlight search for it and it holds everything from websites, to WEP keys for wireless networks.

I use Keychain, you can even add your own, I have manually added my bank logins

For extra security you can change the keychain password to be different to your User's login password

I use SplashId since you can also sync it with your iPhone to have the information with you when you are not at home.

I used this app before for the Palm as well and it has worked just fine.

I keep everything in Secure Notes in the Keychain. And then I keep it backed up in 3 different places.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
