    Password management
    What are Mac users recommending for managing passwords? Has anyone had experience with 1Password software and comments on that or other password management methods, programs or techniques?

    If you want the best their is, get 1Password. One of it's most useful features is autofilling the login information on webpages through a shortcut.
    I use it and can't imagine using the web without it, arrive at a login page, press command+\, enter master password and your logged in.
    They also have a 30 day trial for getting a feel of the application if you decide to try it.

    If you don't need all that 1Password has to offer, the Mac OS included Keychain Access can also store your passwords/notes.
    I had all my passwords store in there before I got 1Password.

    Have to agree with 1Password being the ticket for OS X. They've got an iPod/iPhone/iPad app so you can carry all your passwords with you. They've even got an app for Windows now for all of us that use both OSs.
    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.

    Thanks. I have been looking at 1PASSWORD, looks like it will be the best option for me.

    1Password is already working very well with Chrome ... no issues.

    Another +1 for 1Password. I can't rate that application highly enough - really changed how I handle passwords and enabled me to do it properly, finally.
