Just out of curiousity.


How do you store you're passwords; I'm thinking of transferring to a password manager at present everythings on paper, which is better digital or hard copy. Just a final note is the firefox password manager any good?


Thanks

I use KeePassX. I particularly like that it is cross-platform.

+1 for Keepassx and you can keep the database in DropBox to store between multiple computers, or I guess if you duel boot you can share the database with your M$ side as well. If you do share the DB with M$ you may want to use keepass portable on that side as I know that it will read the same DB as Keepassx just do some testing before you commit to a full data entry session.

KeePassX for Windows runs just fine on Windows. I have it on my Win7 machine.

For an Android, you would need KeepassDroid.

I keep my password and other sensitive files in an encrypted USB stick. I never let firefox save my passwords.
