b-b-b-but every password should be a random scribble of ciphertext-looking gibberish with special characters, numbers, and capital and lowercase letters and you should never use the same password twice amirite guys?

I use a mobile app. Seven different master passwords, generates a hash based on the websites url.

If im not using my same password I usually just put the username/email backwards with numbers that mean something if numbers needed. It's retarded but even if I forget the password I can just figure it out.

Keypass 2.19 with Backup DB database

>>46797291
I save each password in a plain text file, with the name of the website as the filename. I keep them all in an encrypted virtual drive.

That is a backup, as generally the web browser has the passwords memorized already, in my session.

>>46797291
I use lastpass, tis pretty convenient, I change master pswd regularly

>>46797646
I don't really log in to things on my phone because I don't want to trust it more than I need to, but I'd assume you could at least install a terminal with git and gpg, and it'd work like on your computer. I don't know of any more user friendly UIs, though, sorry.
>>
I memorized a formula that I use to construct passwords.
A sentence which depends on how important the password is + capital letters and numbers + a part of the site name.
All passwords are unique and easy to remember.

I keep a backup of all passwords in a .txt file in a Truecrypt container, which is encrypted with 7zip.

I can't remember shit.

Keepass.

Actually, I should make a backup. If I lost my copy I'd be fugged.

OK there seems to be an Android client in development.

I have a server at home that I sync to. Though I guess you could use any git workflow you want if you don't have one of those.

I let google manage them :^)

>>46797291
I remember my email password, and any time I need to log into anything else I just reset the password to a random string of numbers and letters.

i have them all on random pieces of paper scattered around my room.

Pass. GPG encrypted 32-character long randomly generated passwords backed up with Git.

Keepassx is written by different people and is linux native
try both and use whichever you feel like

Only if they somehow knew you used the same one for everything. And what's so "stable and secure" about having to write all of them down somewhere?

I use lastpass.

Before I used keepass, but it has shit integration with firefox, it doesn't sync well, and it is windows only (mono is shit).

With lastpass I don't have to worry much about where I am, as I even have it on my android device. It isn't too expensive anyway.

pic related, super easy to remember these passes

when i really don't want them to be bruteforced i shift all of the characters in one direction on the keyboard. that way it's still memorable, but no longer contains dictionary words
>>
>>46803295
The problem with this method is the "look-over-the-shoulder" vulnerability. I.e. people who you know/work with, rather than random brute-forcing hackers. (Depending on what your profession is, one might be more dangerous than the other)

The benefit of having a "random character" password is that even if someone just saw a fraction of the keys you hit, they would have no way to extrapolate the rest. Not the case for passwords made out of words.
>>
LastPass with 20 randomized characters and foreign characters like € and £
>>
>>46797822
I wish there was a way to unlock keepass with my fingerprint
>>
>>46797579
Are you an idiot? You do realise how unsafe this is, right?

>>46797291
I use lastpass.
>>
>>46797291
In my brain. My password is similar to cT15v87lrUm! but with a different couple of characters for each site.
>>
my password was password but then cnn told me to change it to pa$$word

>>46803700
>not using p4$$w0rd

I have just installed keepass2 on a debian machine. Can the app or its db be copied or exported for use with keepass2 on another machine?
>>
>>46803475
Good point. I feel like the key shifting could help with that though.

Like they'd see me typing a bunch of seemingly random characters, and unless they notice that the keys I'm pressing are adjacent to other keys that would spell out a word, I'm probably in the clear
>>
>>46803740
You can sync it with Dropbox and hope the NSA don't have a 0day

I have my password store repository in two places:

2. Github private repo

Am gonna have a play with this now. For years I have relied on a gpg encrypted text file. Its time for a change.

>>46803740
>>46803863
>>46803922
But GPG-encrypted text files are objectively better. Why are you downgrading?
>>
They're all saved in my SeaMonkey profile.
>>
>>46803961
Ummm, dunno. Is it really a downgrade?
>>
>>46804010
If you have to ask, never mind. Just use KeePass like the rest of the botnet, good goy.

Better sync it to the cloud as well for better safety. :^)
>>
>>46797291
KeePassX
>>
>>46803961
Keepass removes the passwords from memory after a few seconds, it's also encrypted while in memory.
>>
>>46803295
This is why XKCD is full of shit

The "hard to guess" password would take 0 effort to break with a dictionary attack
