Managing Passwords

Recommended Posts

Hello AVSIM Staff & Members,

 

I'm enjoying getting back into flight simulation after so many years away... but having a hard time keeping track of the various forum sites, support sites, gossip sites, vendor sites, and my real life!

 

Anyone out there have an idea, or even know of a utility that will manage passwords to all of these sites that form the backbone of support for our hobby?

 

Right now I have to keep up with... AVSIM, VATSIM, PilotEdge, VATSIM Emirates, Flight1Tech, Flight1Tech Support, Elite, and the list goes on and on... Now I know I can take the old fashioned route of writing the different passwords down but looking for something more secure. I can also allow the browser to save passwords, but also not the most secure, and on some sites I have even different usernames and password rules.

 

So, any ideas? Or even methods of configuring browsers to work best with so many different forum sites, with different user names and passwords for each?

 

Thanks for the help!

Lastpass works very well (been using it for months now), integrated with your browser, allows auto-login and it's free. :)

1Password is also a great product, a little on the pricey end but well worth it.
