Hello all nsane buddies..

I need you guy's opinion about selecting a best password manager. I have been using Sticky Password now a day but found it a kind of heavy, it takes considerable time to start too. Here I want to know s what is the fastest-lightweight-full featured password manager available?

I"m sure you have a lot too. I don't use any manager, it's just a step of security more...

Have been trying out KeePass & LastPass, but keeping going back to RoboForm Enterprise desktop.

Unless all the passwords used are the same (which is silly dangerous,) the human brain cannot possibly remember the countless logins containing the most complex combinations of different passwords that can be used in today's world.

Moreover, the extra layer of security that a password manager against keyloggers is not possibly even for those who possess extra brains in their groins. Even such over-endowed individuals would need to use a password manager to bypass key-presses, period. :D

I agree with you..the keyloggers are dangerous..you try sticky password then tell me if roboform is better..then I'll use roboform

I use and recommend KeePass Password Safe (Portable) . Excellent!

I second that, KeePass is great, it also uses something called: Two-Channel Auto-Type Obfuscation, which is undetectable, or almost, by key-loggers. I've been using the program for over a year now and I really love it. :D

Not completly agree with you...

To remember all the passwords (not the same: i agree with you), you just need method to construct them, so you can remember it easily.

Lastpass, Keepass, Roboform, all are good. As far as I can understand, all three are different than each other. Choose what suits you the most.

Add a layer of security by using KeyScrambler.

@speed57: True. But having 10+ passwords like me for different strength and different places is very hard to remember. I do remember most of the time but I'd better let it auto-fill than type every time. :P

LastPass. It's half-cloud based. You don't have to worry about it's security if you have a powerful master password. I've heard that Roboform always has compatibility problems in Beta/Aurora versions of Firefox, hence, I stick with Lastpass.

No matter what method one uses to construct there's a ceiling to it that also comes with a rider (if one makes an error or maybe forgets even a single character, the loss can be irrecoverable.) Moreover, the human brain will depreciate over a period of time and on the other hand, the number of logins, UserNames & Passwords will only keep on increasing at a rapid pace. There's also the collateral damage that one can can incur with a crack on the nut or a poke in the butt. :lol:

All said, a password manager has only one password to be memorized which is globally acceptable to most. It's but a handful of individuals (1 out of 100) who can develop algorithms for recollection (and still that 1% is not free from collateral damage as mentioned in the previous para.)

It's not between RoboForm and Sticky Password, it never was.

If you want the most suitable, just try the leading 3 password managers. RoboForm, LastPass and KeePass (in no particular order.) From my personal viewpoint it boils down to LastPass and RoboForm. LastPass is not often updated as RoboForm is but I realized it doesn't really need to be.

I chose RoboForm over LastPass simply because LastPass is the Google of password managers (your data is stored in the cloud - absolutely unacceptable for someone as paranoid as I.) RoboForm has the option of storing your personal user data on your local storage media and those who don't mind the cloud can still store theirs via 'RoboForm Everywhere' I also find RoboForm more user friendly (like Nokia.)

That's quite true. All the leading password managers have this obfuscation capability and also store the passcards (Password, Logins, UserNames) in a highly encrypted form. ;)

i use lastpass .

been using it for almost two years now , and it has always worked for me like a charm .

its AI is excellent , accurate almost 95% of the time . ( the remaining 5% is not to be blamed entirely upon the Lastpass , but mainly on the web pages . some times the page is too secure and automated and prevents any thing else to run along side it , or some times the page is too stupid , it itself does not know what its doing . let alone then how will Lastpass work then ! )

and you have the freedom to access your credentials from any where ...!

and Lastpass uses some Advanced Encryption Logarithms and Techniques which are quite difficult to break or bypass, if not impossible .

check the Lastpass home page to read about it more .

as said , if you have a strong master password ( one which fulfills the criteria of an ideal password ) , you should not worry about the Lastpass security .

because only you can encrypt and decrypt your passwords with your master key , and no one else .

the data stored in the Lastpass servers is all encrypted and even the Lastpass staff does not know what your passwords are !

( and so , if you happen to loose your master password , then nobody can help you . you lost it all ! .... dont worry there are ways of getting back the passwords , but that is a different story )

so even if some one hacks the Lastpass servers and steals your data , he has all encrypted info and nothing which will be ready to use .

he will have to decrypt it and then you are left on the mercy of the strength of your Master Password .!

and if while accessing your data from a computer that is not yours , you fear that the master password might be captured or logged or stored by this PC compromising your security .

no need to worry even then . coz Lastpass has this feature of One Time Password .

these are One Time Password meant to be used only ONCE for accessing an account , and after that they go Dead and Useless .!

so even if the password gets captured , no need to worry , it will be of no use to any one ..!

so get it ...!

and even then if you care for your privacy and security and are skeptic to store any info into the cloud , then go for KeePass coupled with the Firefox extension KeeFox .

note -- its not automated as Lastpass and is not that Intelligent like Lastpass and you have to have your PC with you all the time to access the credentials because that is where all the data is and no where else ..!

Another important point to take into consideration when selecting a password manager is whether it really gives you the alternate option of storing your user data locally. If a password manager has only one option i.e. of cloud storage, your data may/may not probably be cracked but there's always a dangerous chance of some scene group (like for example Anonymous) hacking it and bringing it down - thereby resulting in a complete loss of user data.

Hello all nsane buddies..

I have the same issue, too. Maybe you should remove it from the autostart and start it manually or you have to change in which order the autostart should be to speed it a little bit up or delay some of those (e.g. with GlaryUtilities Autostart Manager). If this is your only issue, you should be able to solve it, if you like Sticky Password anyway.
