Forget your online passwords

Alistair Fairweather doesn’t need to remember any of his online passwords anymore, which means he can make them longer and more secure. Here’s how.

I use KeePass

+1 Runs on all platforms, fast and secure and fully automated so just two clicks to open a browser site and login.

EDIT: And free for all platforms....

Since Mavericks I've sketched to using Safari on every device now because iCloud Keychain just works so well.

All I wish it had was 2-stage authentication when wanting to view passwords for extra security.

As secure as the password you lock them with.

If your master password is "password" it's not very secure at all.

OK, this makes it a great target for hacking or social engineering.

Can rogue employees not get access to the passwords? And who audits these services?

I assume you mean employees of the companies hosting the password data?

No it shouldn't be possible as they are encrypted to hell and gone although anything is crackable. Then again the source where said password belongs is equally vulnerable.
