AnyPassword.com – A Free, Easy Software to Store Passwords for Your Accounts July 28, 2007

Passwords are out of control, multiplying like rabbits.

Something must be done before we have more passwords than brain cells.  The ideal solution would be a universal username/password that would grant you access to all of your Internet accounts from Yahoo to Google’s Gmail to YouTube to Amazon.  Of course, if the ideal solution existed you’d need to keep your universal username/password as an uber-secret or you’ll be universally munsoned

So, what happens? We end up with too many usernames/passwords for our memory to retain and we create a list of them.  We then live in fear that this covert, coveted list will fall in the hands of evil-doers so we stash it as a file on our PC in an obscure folder or under a pseudonym, save it to a USB drive or print it out and store it in flour jars, old college textbooks or shoeboxes under a bed.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a solution for the growing password problem. However, I have found a free software program that will help you securely manage your ever-growing list of usernames/passwords and give your memory a break.  Instead of remembering dozens of passwords, your over-taxed memory must only remember one.

Anypassword.com is a free and easy software program.  Using their product, you can store your plethora of usernames/passwords and web sites into a software program. The information resides on your PC as an encrypted file with a master password.  Don’t forget this password or you’ll be munsoned (again).  Since it is a file, it is vulnerable to hard drive crashes, so be sure to backup your PC data regularly.  If you need a backup service, take a look at MyTechOpinion’s blog about an online backup service called Carbonite.

The program is easy to use and easy to install.  In fact, it has won multiple awards which the company proudly lists on its site. 

If you’re looking for a better solution to manage your username/passwords,  you owe it to yourself (and your memory) to give Anypassword.com a try.
