The ability to remember user names and passwords, and even fill out online forms, is not new. In fact, it has been built into web browsers for sometime now. However, thanks to notoriously bad implementation by Firefox, which makes all of the data easy to view via the Settings, and people tending to use the same passwords over and over on multiple sites, many have become easy targets for hackers.

One easy and free way of solving this issue is to use a password management tool and there are several fine ones on the market, although not all of them are actually free. My favorite, and one that has been recommended by several security experts, is called LastPass.

There is also a “Premium” version of the software available which costs $1 per month. This allows customers to use the program on mobile devices — and it works with pretty much EVERY mobile operating system and browser that you could possibly think of, from mainstream to obscure to dead ones like Windows Mobile. It is also ad-free.
