Free Online and Offline Password Managers
« on: 24. January 2012., 07:14:15 »
Free Password Managers:-
Be it a site that provides free email service, online shopping or an online banking site, all of them demand a username and password. While using the same username and password for all the sites is JUST NOT a good idea; remembering dozens of them isn’t exactly easy either.

So what does one do under such circumstances? Well, there are programs known as password managers, that can save the day for you. These software programs allow you to store your registration related information in a secure electronic form. To login to a site you just need to enter a single master password that allows retrieval of the specific password information for that site.

The information is then used by the password manager to automatically login. This helps in assigning different passwords to individual sites, eliminating any need to remember them and therefore adding more security. If you are looking for such a utility check out our list of  some of the best free password manager software for Windows 7.
