I'm looking for password managers that keep track of both online passwords and desktop application passwords (Outlook, Quicken, etc.). I've searched password managers on line but I can't tell if they cover both passwords online and desktop. I'm hoping to find one password manager that will keep track of both online passwords and desktop passwords so I don't have to get two individual password managers. I'm running Windows 8. Do you know of any password manager that cover both online and desktop applications? Thanks in advance for your help.

I use PasswordSafe, and store both browser and application passwords there. You manually save passwords, so you can save any passwords you like. I even keep my credit card numbers in it for easy access with shopping online.

It doesn't integrate with the browser the way some others do, but the autotype makes it reasonably easy to log onto a site.

It's opensource, and is available in several platforms. I also use it on my iPad and Android phone.

Hi and welcome,

You may also try PINs, it's free and packed with features. Reviews are good, too. I don't use password managers as I avoid creating accounts when I only want, say,  to comment every now and then. This makes the number of passwords to remember lower. Mailbox(es), some forums, stuff like Dropbox... that should be enough, just the necessary  things. And I don't buy online, so don't have to worry about ,well, PINs.

I use 1Password. It does integrate with browsers, so you can automatically have it filling login information (as wells as things like address, etc).

You can also store "secure notes" as well as things like credit card numbers, application license numbers, and generic account information.

There is a Mac version and Windows version as well as iOS and Android versions. You can then use DropBox to keep your passwords synced across all devices.

I use KeePass at work. I allows you to store windows passwords under Windows and Internet under intenet. It's a hierarchial type folder system like Windows Explorer. The section it has are Windows, Network, Internet, Email and Home banking. It also is password protected so if you forget your password to it you will be locked out.
