    Keeping a track on your passwords
    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

    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.
