Best Password Vault

Take it from Leo--

What's the best password vault? | The Tech Guy: "Carla is overwhelmed by a ton of passwords she has to remember. What can she uses for just one password to rule them all? Leo says to use a password vault that will generate a unique and strong password that's difficult to crack. The best passwords are long and random with a combination of upper and lower case, numbers, letters and punctuation. That's what a password vault generator will buy you. Leo advises using LastPass. You can download and use it for free, or pay $12 for some additional features including mobile use. Other options include DashLane for the Mac, One Password for the Mac. And to remember your one lastpass password, use a pneumonic, where you use the first letter of each word of a phrase with punctuation, and then toss in a phone number. It will look random, but easy to remember or at least reconstruct."

The largest of those seized sites, Silk Road 2, lasted exactly one year to the day...." (read more at the link above)
