Free Windows tool No. 11: LastPass

Store all your passwords on a web site. Sounds crazy, right? I’d been using AI Roboform to manage passwords for years, until I bumped into this cloud password manager. Like Roboform, LastPass keeps track of your user ids, passwords, and other settings, and offers them to you with a click. But there’s a big difference. Roboform stores your passwords on your PC. LastPass encrypts them, then stores them in the cloud. LastPass does its AES-256 encrypting and decrypting on your PC, using a master password that you have to provide – and remember. The data stored in the cloud is encrypted, and without the key, the stored passwords can’t be broken, unless you can crack AES-256 encryption.
