Plethora of accounts and passwords


Hello friends,
I believe many of us are facing same problem.
I now have so many account and their passwords that It is becoming a problem to remember each of them. I have login account at my place of work, mail accounts, banking accounts, on my linux machine at home and office, on my windows account in at office and home, etc etc.
In fact to ease the things a bit, I have given common passwords to many of my accounts. But then it is not an advisable practice.
I want to know how the gurus are managing so many accounts.


Any ideas ?


Prabhat Soni

It's FOSS and Linux/Win/Mac cross platform compatible. It even allows you to attach files to entries. Word has it that syncronization with other files is in the works.

use it.
love it.
