Does anyone use a password manager?  I'm considering taking the plunge.   :)

I used to use Roboform but it became incompatible with my browser so I got rid and didn't replace it.  I don't use one now but I allow my browser to remember non-banking passwords.

I use LastPass.  It's free and synchronises across all my devices, be they IOS, Windows or Android.  I'm very happy with it.

Computer Active magazine rates LastPass quite highly as well.

Yes, that's the one I was considering Gill.  I think I'll give it a whirl.   :thumb:

Would you like me to test it for you?  Just PM me your banking password and I'll see how secure it is.   :devil:

No need - Clive can use mine instead. It's, "id10t".
