Storing Sensitive Information (CC info/Passwords)

Recommended Posts

Guest Clydene

I encrypt my sensitive/confidential files with GPG4Win (it uses the Kleopatra application for encrypting and decrypting). It is highly secure.

I have used PasswordsPlus for years and love it. I have the app which I add to all my computers and mobile devices so I can access my passwords whenever I want. I even give my VA access through the cloud to it so she has all my passwords.


It does cost $19.99 I think for desktop version but I use the one paid version for all 4 of my desktops/laptops. I think the app for my mobile may have cost me $9.99 too.

I've been using KeyPass for the last 9 months and it's serving me well.


What I really like is that I have all my passwords in one place with only one master password to remember. It's all encrypted so super secure.


You have to download the application onto your PC and create a database. But, you can store your database (encrypted of course) to Evernote so you can always have access -- as long as the PC you're using has the KeePass software installed on it.


I even have KeePass on my iPhone and iPad. It's great.

I know what you mean Tawnya. I never used to save any of my passwords on my PC... at all because I thought it was well dodgy. It was one of my friends who convinced me otherwise. He's an IT security expert and he uses KeePass too, has been for years and highly recommends it over other products out there. Can't argue with that really.


I'm OK with free stuff as long as it's a good product. KeePass is actually Open Source just like WordPress is, except it's got a hell of a lot more security. You get regular application updates too.


And because it's actually a database that sits on your PC, apparently that's more secure than cloud based systems.


If you've got good spyware/malware software on your PC, you've got nothing to worry about. :)


Check out their security page, tons of detail on how it encrypts your data, protection against keyloggers and other cool stuff.
