In today’s age, almost everyone owns a few email accounts, some have multiple Facebook accounts. How do you remember all of the password for these accounts? One way is to use the same password for all, this is very dangerous because if someone managed to steal your password, he or she has total access to all of your accounts.
One method of separating your password between different accounts is to use the name of the service. For example, your password is ‘qwerty’ and for your facebook account, simply use ‘qwertybook’. To make it harder to crack, use ‘qwertybook1984’. This is not exactly the best method, if you need to remember 100 over password, you will need a password manager.
01 – Encryptr – Android | Win | Linux | Mac OS X

Encryptr only ever encrypts or decrypts your data locally on your device. No plain text is ever sent to the server, not even your passphrase.
Being cross-platform, it allows users to securely access their confidential data from a single account from the cloud, no matter where they are. It’s currently available for Android, Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X
02 – Password Safe – Android | Win | Mac OS X
Password Safe allows you to safely and easily create a secured and encrypted user name/password list. With Password Safe all you have to do is create and remember a single “Master Password” of your choice in order to unlock and access your entire user name/password list.
Security starts with you, the user. Keeping written lists of passwords on scraps of paper, or in a text document on your desktop is unsafe and is easily viewed by prying eyes (both cyber-based and human). Using the same password over and over again across a wide spectrum of systems and web sites creates the nightmare scenario where once someone has figured out one password, they have figured out all your passwords and now have access to every part of your life (system, e-mail, retail, financial, work).
