Password managers vs. Manual password management

Q: Password managers vs. Manual password management

I've been thinking about the use of password managers lately and wondering whether it's worth exploring an alternative.

The problem, as I see it, is with having one master password - I know this is supposed to be kept securely by the developers, but I've heard of several security scares in the last few years. Of course, this is much more secure than simply using the same password everywhere, but if hackers were able to gain access to people's master passwords, surely it would be a goldmine for them and disatrous for everyone else! Even if the master passwords are well protected, this is possible, right?

Back to the alternative... what do you think about the possibility of devising a new unique password each time, writing it down, and physically guarding it. However, this would just be for the accounts you deem most vital, so a password manager could still be used for less important accounts. I know it sounds inconvenient, and I suppose it would only work if you're not prone to losing things, but could be a viable option?

Preferred Solution: Password managers vs. Manual password management

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am looking for a good free password manager.
I have installed KeePass 2 but what I was hoping for was a manager that would notice when I am signing into a web site, and collect that info.. or at least offer to. I used to use one a decade ago or so that did that. I forget the name.

Unless I am missing something, do I have to input all my account names and pwds into KeePass?

Any recommendations?

I prefer data kept on my hard drvie... not in a cloud like LastPass.

Thank you.

I came across this this morning Password Managers Compared: LastPass vs KeePass vs Dashlane vs 1Password and I am wondering if I should be using something like the first one listed because it is free and I am never really sure of passwords as there always seems to be so many.

Any thoughts and advice on the use of these softwares??

A:Password managers

I've been considering the same thing for the same reason. I saw the same article this morning. I've seen good things about LastPass and DashLane, which appear to be the best two of the bunch. Both LastPass and DashLane do not have a portable application according to the chart yet the description of LastPass says the Premium version does have a mobile app. The one thing that DashLane has that LastPass does have is Offline access and even that isn't totally true since, once you access the folder with the passwords online and transfer it to your devices.

LastPass Premium version is only $12/yr compared to DashLane's $40/yr. I'm leaning strongly toward LastPass.

I'm getting a little paranoid these days and I'd like to know what password manager you folks use? It must definitely be user friendly as well as effective and hopefully not run at start up.
From my research, The free version of "LastPass" 3.0 seems to be well rated. Does anyone use this one? Do you recommend it?

A couple years ago I got this new app from symantec, "Norton Password Manager". Nifty little program, it auto-fills passwords and saves them for both web pages and programs. Almost everything today needs a password, whether its this forum or a online banking so it is very handy to not have to type them all the time and remember them. But that's also the downside: the passwords than NPM stores are encrypted and not visible anywhere. So if you ever forget a password and somehow need to type it, you're out of luck even with NPM unless you wrote it down somewhere. Symantec stopped supporting this program and they let it die out. I think a lot of people would find it useful but they just didn't want to continue it.

Are there any other "password managers" out there that do auto-fill and also let you view your database of passwords, and don't take up a lot of resources? I found a couple when searching but was unimpressed with the user interface. NPM was good.

I think that 10 years ago, Norton applications were unbeatable but its been downhill after symantec started focusing their resources on buying up all their competition. NPM conflicts with one of my other programs, and "systemworks" was such a resource hog that I dumped it.

I have approximately 96 sites that I use/visit (not all daily) and which require passwords. I have considered trying a password manager such as LastPass but have not been convinced that the switch to it's use would be easily accomplished.
Is there an installation guide that I can peruse prior to downloading and installing? I have some questions that I would like answered before I make that decision.
1. Does it remove/replace the passwords that I have already registered on each site?
2. If I change computers or reformat the current device will those passwords be lost?
3. I have a few sites that require password changes on a regular basis, such as every 90 days. How would a PW manager handle that?
4. I assume I would need to install it also on my smartphone and tablet?

hi everyone.
I read some of your threads about extensions like lastpass. I am not an expert and I was wondering about the purpouse and how much these extensions are usefull.
1) I suppose that if you use only your memory , you can't create many different and strong pw;unless you write them on paper;
2)I suppose these extensions are useful against keyloggers (even if i am not sure how do they work: memo all that you type?)
3) even if they save you from keloggers,couldn't someone force lastpass(or others) and so have all your pw?

I'd really appreciate if you could clarify these things

looking forward to hearing from you

thank you
 

A:General Discussion about Password Managers

1. The point of a password manager is for convenience, but more importantly, to use it to create really strong passwords; unfortunately the vast majority of people only use them for convenience.

2. Extensions - in and of themselves - are not protected against keylogging - unless - anti-logging protection is built-in (and I don't know of any with anti-logging protection built-in).

3. Someone could hack your browsing session, your system and\or your password manager account - but that would be highly unlikely. Also, if keylogger somehow manages to get onto your system, then all your personal datas - including passwords - could be compromised.

If you are worried about keylogging, then I suggest KeyScrambler or SpyShelter free. Zemana Anti-Logger free is good too.

It is more important to protect your physical system from infection to protect your data. Anti-loggers are notoriously unreliable since new keylogging techniques are always being developed. Furthermore, there are certain types of keylogging that no anti-logger can protect against - such as webpage embedded logging scripts. To protect against those you'd need to use NoScript, uBlock Origin in Hard or Nightmare Mode, uMatrix. And while they do work very well, they will change your online experience - because they disable a lot of webpage functionality. If you use only a few webpages, it is not a problem. If you use a lot of pages, configuring all the rules will be a pain. There is learning curve ... Read more

I've been using LastPass for a bit more over a year now. It's really easy to use and it integrates itself very well in every web browsers I use/used: Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. The password generator feature is also easy of access since you can generate unique passwords for every accounts you create. Since I have LastPass Premium, I also have the app on my Android phone and it works very well with all the apps I have (on top of working in the Chrome browser), so I would go with it. If we are talking free version, LastPass offers more than Dashlane.

My question is whether using a password manager would prevent a keylogger from stealing passwords.

I thought that as a password manager pastes the passwords directly into your browser then it wouldn't give much chance for a keylogger to record keystrokes or copy things from the system memory.

Considering, AFAIK, Bitlocker hasn't been broken, would a full drive encryption with password on boot be just as good, or better, than using a password manager for websites? (passwords saved to browser)
 
I know my Bitlocker password, the recovery key is printed and stored off-site, I don't save things I'm working on to the system drive and in the event of requiring a new installation of windows with all my apps/drivers I can have it done in about 90 minutes (so the risk of Bitlocker giving me trouble doesn't bother me at all).
 
What do you think?

A:Bitlocker on boot VS Password managers

I'm not sure I understand your question.
 
So you already use BitLocker for your system drive. And from your question, I assume you don't use a password manager for your site credentials.

Hi

What is the 'best practice' for managing one's passwords?

A) HOW SHOULD I STORE PASSWORDS?
Problems:
1. I need to manage a fairly large number (i.e. 50+). So there are too many to remember.

2. Obviously I don't want to keep them inside a simple unencrypted text file, in case my data gets hacked.

3. If I download dedicated password application how can I trust it?(!)

4. I don't trust 'The Cloud' nor any of the big data owners: google, apple, amazon, drop-box et al.

5. I don't want to be tied to anything that I cant migrate with me onto my next hardware, when I come to upgrade my PC(s).

Either way I dont really want to pay anything (certainly not more than a few dollars) for this security.

I was thinking of using something like TrueCrypt to create a virtual drive (that I encrypt robustly) and then storing my passwords in an ordinary text file.
That way I would have a single master password (for TrueCrypt) which would give access to all the other passwords.
[Aside: Obviously if I forget my master password I'm screwed!]
B) PASSWORD CONVENTIONS
As you know many sites require passwords that meet specific rules e.g.
- At least one upper AND one lower case letter
- At least one digit
- No tripplets (three characters the same next to each other) (iTunes!)
- No more than 16 characters

Double-click problems
Some sites allow extended ASCII characters (e.g. ?$%^&*) , which give VASTLY better security of course. BUT they are a mighty pain to use regularly because if you... Read more

As with a lot of people, I have many tens of web accounts of various sorts, including one on this site. While I do not have the exact same user name and password for all of them, there is a fair degree of repetition. In addition, I do not change the passwords all too often.

I came across WIseKey / WIseForm solution here. While not free, it is well within what I'd pay to sleep better. I have two questions:

What are the better solutions for consumers (not corporate networks)?

There's a portable version that you can put on a USB stick for when you use public shared computers.

I bought a new Win7 laptop and tried to connect it to the server, but it hasn't had Read/Write privileges over the files in the Win7 server. Entering a username and password to gain access to the servers folders has not been a problem, and as far as I know, opening files such as documents has not been a problem either. However, when trying to save an edited document, access is denied, and if I try to open an executable file (this is necessary for a node installation), it prompts me for a network password.

Every combination possible of username and password from the 2 systems (including '\' or 'SYSTEMNAME\' before the username) has not worked. I tried syncing the times which was apparently a previous problem, but to no avail. I am unable to access Local Security Policy, as the server is running off Home Premium. I have tried creating a new workgroup, removing and changing passwords, enabling guest access to the network through the Windows Resource Kit Command Shell, creating identical users on both computers, but nothing appears to have worked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Trying to reset the password on and old C400, it is asking for primary or administrator password. I have no idea what to put in there, and can't see if  the computer will function at all!  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks! 

A:Need the reset for password on Latitude C400, bios revision A06, original password.?

You'll need to call Dell with verification of ownership -- it may not be worth it though, since the call will cost about $60, which is probably about six times more than the entire system is worth.
The other option is to replace the mainboard - which is probably well under $60.

Windows 7. I have a desktop and a laptop that were installed clean with the same OS version.

On a network, the laptop is able to stream my shared media to all other PC's on the network (one is running XP, another is running Vista). PASSWORD PROTECTED SHARING IS OFF

On the same network, any PC that tries to network into the desktop is prompted to enter a password.

The laptop is sharing folders on the home network from C:\. The Desktop is sharing folders on the home network from a second hard drive labeled E:\. The media on E:\ is mapped into the libraries (pictures, videos, etc).

These are all of the things I have tried.
- turned password protected sharing ON: prompts a password
- turned password protected sharing OFF: prompts a password
- Disconnected E:\ to share C:\ only: prompts a password
- Set permissions to all computers on the network under Admin control: prompts a password
- Allowed access through firewall: prompts a password
- Disabled firewall completely: prompts a password
- disabled wireless card and used LAN: prompts a password
- used a completely different router: prompts a password
- allowed sharing on E:\ in advanced settings: prompts a password
- set permissions to Everyone on every single folder in E:\: prompts a password
- banged head against the wall: prompts a password
- raged: prompts a password

Something to note: If I try to network into the laptop from the desktop, it too is prompted to enter a password for the laptop (this only happ... Read more
