One of the coolest, easiest new freeware I’ve discovered is called LastPass. Sign up for it and it will be your brains so you can float string around finger-remember-LastPass-virtual assistant-landscaperoff to la-la land while it remembers your passwords (which means, yes, you will have to initially install but only once which is better
than 100 more times). Or you can let it think up these crazy passwords that no hacker anywhere could ever
think up. Best part, it can sync with your devices and you can use it on your mobile too. And if you like star ratings, you’re in luck because it gets a great rating–cha ching. Do you believe me now?

  • CNET Editors’ Rating:

    5.0 stars Spectacular

Well, if you don’t yet, here’s another explanation from

The PC World 100: Best Products of 2009

“Here is the cream of the crop, the 100 best of 2009…automatically fills in saved log-ins and forms with the click of a button. This handy Web freebie and browser plug-in also syncs your data to any computer that you use regularly. You always knew that someday you’d find a more reliable password manager than your yellow Post-its.”

So, there you go. You’ll never have to pull your hair out again or turn blue from hyperventilating when you can’t remember that crazy password again!
