    Can you trust your browser with your passwords?

    Posted August 23, 2012 - 3:38 pm

    Having your Web browser remember your passwords and/or credit card details can be convenient, but it poses some security risks. How much of a risk depends on which browser you’re using, whether you sync with other devices, and whether you’re using any of the browser's extra security features. Here are the main vulnerabilities in some of the most popular browsers—Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox—and ways you can protect against those weak spots.

    Store, manage passwords with sticky password

    Posted February 28, 2011 - 9:52 pm

    Sticky Password ($30, 30-day free trial) helps you manage your ever-growing collection of passwords. I have about 400 of them stored in Mozilla Firefox, and I doubt I'm atypical. Many are useless or outdated; far too many are identical or similar. It's easy to slip into very bad habits, and to forget that even if you don't care if your log in to a minor blog site is hacked, you could lose it all if you use the same password for something more important. Further, you have passwords and codes for things other than Web sites--bank accounts, home security, credit cards.
