There are various applications like Key-Pass that can do this for you, but I have to ask why do you want to keep passwords on your computer ?

 

I admit I suffer from a minor degree of paranoia - I keep passwords in a text file on a memory stick which lives on top of my desk. Short of a physical break-in to my house only my wife and I have access to it.

I use Key-Pass (for many years now) and have never run into problems.

I do like Chris' idea about the USB stick and text file though.

Hi abdulbadii
Both above responses are perfectly good answers but I found internet and power outages were upsetting me when it became time to log in again.
 
Therefore I opt for part of Chris' ideas and all of mine and my wifes' are kept in a Small Red Hardback Notepad ..... (I also keep them in Wordpad)
The book is not in or on the computer desk, but it is in my bedside drawers as I change the online sites like F/book and some forums every 1 or 2 months.

 

Plenty of options there for you to choose from.

Bedside drawer?

So each time you need logon credentials you have to make a trip to the bedroom to fetch the book?

@ jcgriff2 ,
 
Most logins / passwords are in the computer already and stored in Word Pad (or similar), but you would not know what the file entry title was..
 
If I called the file Wxyz 224400 would you know what that actually meant as a file ? ?
 
The Small Red Hardback Notepad is a last defence for me forgetting to find passwords, and how often I now change passwords (to keep my wife OUT )..

 

Please Note : The site is actually KeePass, not Key-Pass as you have written !

 

Thank you

 

P.S. The bedroom is only 2 steps from where I am currently sitting..
