    Question how/where to store login info/passwords
    Just wondered how everyone keeps track of login and passwords information for all the sites and services you use?

    I have a password protected word doc in my documents folder... not sure if this is the best way or not?

    I use to keep this file on my portable usb drive so I can access from anywhere, but even that may not be wise?

    macgig,

    I just write them on yellow stickies and put them along an edge on my computer table. Pro: When I have a change, it's easy to make out a new sticky. Con: When I'm not near my computer table, I don't have access.

    For my program keys, I make a Word file and keep it there. But there's a Mac program called LicenseKeeper http://www.outerlevel.com for $20 (covered in September Macworld, page 56) that I plan to buy for that purpose.

    15 would be nice, I have more than twice that number of conflicting rules

    Like I said though, with variations. So letters instead of numbers or vice versa. Or in l33t 5p34k. lol.

    I think keychain access actually stores secure notes, but never tried it myself.
