by Berfert / January 3, 2012 6:08 AM PST

Does anybody know/use of a good secure password application? One that stores the URL,
username, password as well as generate random passwords for use on Windows PC
(XP or Win7)?

Passkeeper (PC), very old but works. Does everything but generate the random passwords.
Secure Password Vault for Kindle fire, does everything it seems like. new to it.

random passwords is a bit too easy to add.

I have been using Roboform and Roboform anywhere for more than three years with no issues other than compatibility issue with Chrome and Firefox. Those issues have been solved. I highly recommend you look into this one. They have a free version that you can try first. www.roboform.com.
