    I like keepass 2 - but the BEST for security is your mind.  A tip I just offered someone - use a program, but NEVER store the COMPLETE password - most of it, but always leave out the last two or first two characters (they can be common).  That way, someone gets hold of the manager and tries to use the passwords, none work because they are always missing the 2 characters (only you know this, they may just think the software is out of date).

    Lastpass for me - I know quite a few of the guys on here use it - passwords are encrypted, auto login etc. and it's free (for desktop)

    KeePass is free and has ports for almost all OSs - I share my keepass database on my onedrive which makes it accessibly to all my PCs, laptops, and tablets, as well as my Android phone.  Plus, you never have to see a password - you can copy it to the clipboard and it expires it in 15 seconds so it doesn't even stay there.

    I've used a slew of them and like 2. Roboform2go and dashlane. The first I've used for many years and like it for the fact that you can use 2 factor authentication and the passwords are only six on your USB stick. Dashlane is very good but they are still having some import problems with roboform passcards. Dashlane has a fantastic security dashboard and they keep you abreast of any security hack.

    I've used many others but none really stack up.

    Thank you everyone, currently I keep them in my head and it seems to be the most secure option.
