Since I use my Gmail daily, and it has valuable information, it also has 2-step verification process for extra security, so I will take the chances and use Gmail to store my web account passwords. this way I need only to remember my Gmail account password (this is no big deal) and then you can use Gmail search engine to easily find the website username/password you're looking for.
- Normally websites send you a verification Email with your username to your Gmail account, I forward this Email to myself with the password, and move it to "passwords" label.
- If I change my password, I look for the Email in my Gmail account that holds my previous password, and reply (to myself) with the newer password
- Many times, Google Chrome saves my password, with time it holds a lot of passwords that most likely I forgot.. so once in a while, I export all Chrome passwords and send it as a text file to my Gmail account (use text file to allow Gmail search to find them for you). This tool (ChromePass) is pretty simple and does the job.
- Some sites don't allow you to save the password (when you log in, you won't see the "save password" button (in chrome). When you hit such a website, and you still want it to save the password:
- Right Click on the username field, and select "inspect element"
- Find the token autocomplete="off" and change it to "on", hit enter
- go back to the username/password fields, and you'll see the "save password" button right after you fill your information
