How do you store your passwords, and what is the worst method you have seen used for storing a password?

Although recently i have been having issues with lastpass recently

On my phone under a heading "recipes". Ridiculous but there's not much to hide.


EDIT: Seems Lastpass is the way to go.

Worst? I've seen them store the prod SA password in a source file...

Just keep all my passwords the same. I use "Incorrect". That way if I forget; and type in the wrong password - I automatically get a prompt from the app/site "Password is incorrect". Hey Presto.

Its all about working smarter - and not harder folks ;)

I have a biological computer I use for storing stuff like this, no one has yet been able to crack the encryption. It's also convenient cos it has a fantastic HID.

Would love to, but I want to access it on all my PCs, both work and home. I believe SpiderOak has something that works well.

Mmm, I also use SpiderOak for online backups. I see they have this: https://spideroak.com/solutions/encryptr

Honestly I only need Keepass for work and my laptop is always nearby. The Keepass database is shared on the network and synced to my laptop. My personal passwords are in my head. ;)
