    Free Password Managers:-
    Be it a site that provides free email service, online shopping or an online banking site, all of them demand a username and password. While using the same username and password for all the sites is JUST NOT a good idea; remembering dozens of them isn’t exactly easy either.

    So what does one do under such circumstances? Well, there are programs known as password managers, that can save the day for you. These software programs allow you to store your registration related information in a secure electronic form. To login to a site you just need to enter a single master password that allows retrieval of the specific password information for that site.

    The information is then used by the password manager to automatically login. This helps in assigning different passwords to individual sites, eliminating any need to remember them and therefore adding more security. If you are looking for such a utility check out our list of some of the best free password manager software for Windows 7.

    Online Password Managers:-

    While many prefer to have desktop password managers running on their computer, there are some who prefer to go with online password managers. Yes – using online password managers has its advantages and disadvantages. So before we check out 3 such, let us see the Pro’s and Cons of using them.
    Pros & Cons of online password managers over desktop versions

    The main advantage of online password managers over desktop based password manager software is portability. They can be used on any computer and web browser without having to install additional software. The major disadvantages of online password managers is that you have to be 100% sure that you trust the website.

    Pros:

    Portability
    Possess low risk of losing passwords
    Do not require any type of software installation
    Provides secure back-ups in case there’s damage to a single PC

    Cons:

    Requires a user to trust the hosting site
    Susceptible to cyber attacks
    No guarantee over appropriate encryption of stored password with a user defined key

    Using WOT made no difference, it did not alert me at all, neither Dr Web Link Checker. It must be a FP!
