Ever since I purchased my Windows 7 desktop computer in 2010 I have used PasswordSafe to manage most of my passwords. It’s the first application (app? program? whatchamacaiilit? whatever- they’re all the same to us old dog dummies!) I use to generate and put to use practically all of my passwords. Since then, I have switched browsers from Internet Explorer to Firefox to Chrome, and now I’m trying out Brave. I think we’re on to something great with Brave.
I have also (gasp!) purchased my first smartphone last November, and I’m learning how to use it.
I’m a poor guy, out of work, and computing on the cheap- it’s interesting, but can be done. My stuff HAS to work come hell or high water. Oh, and by he way- all of my devices are cheapies but goodies, too.
I have lately started using LastPass (thank you, How-to Geek) and I’m still a little wary of it. My bank recommends we not use it for their credentials- security precautions, you see. So, it’s good ol’ PasswordSafe to the rescue.I call this password manager “a Swiss army knife made by Timex: does everything, takes a licking, keeps on ticking.” Please pardon my atrocious jingle.
I see lots of password managers mentioned here.
Once I got the hang of typing URLs into the address field of the Brave browser, PasswordSafe, Brave, and I got along fine. It works well to copy and paste email addresses, passwords, user names, and other objects into their respective entry fields. No worries.
Any questions or comments will be most welcome. Please remember I’m a bit of a computer dummy and a lousy typist.
Thanks, guys, for a great browser, and putting up woth my fits of temper.
