Password Manager?

Password Manager?

Bram S.1
New member | Level 2

Hello. Is there any way to create a secured folder within dropbox to use as a password manager? I don't trust any of these 3rd party apps. In fact, the only company I trust is Dropbox. With the security of my data and syncing of my data, Dropbox is a natural choice (for me) to turn to for an advanced password management solution (Aside from saving details and locking them up in a file somewhere).

Not using Dropbox, no. You might be able to using a third-party utility, but you seem to want to avoid that. There are also plenty of password manager apps that will sync with Dropbox. 1Password, for instance, is said to be pretty good. (and one of the moderators here is a mod over there as well. If he trusts it, you probably can as well.)

Thank you. I'll check that out. Any thoughts on KeePass?

I can't offer an opinion on any password manager I'm afraid. I've tried a few, and while they all delivered on their promises, I just stopped using them. I just don't find them convenient. The only password manager I use now is the grey matter between my ears (what little there is of it).

See... I have the same thought process and was going to "upgrade" from a .txt file to a password protected Excel sheet. It's FREE, and it's as secure as my dropbox account. Far more simple especially since I use various 2-step logins. Thoughts?

Oh.. and thank you for your time thus far 🙂

Send me your password protected Excel file and in a matter of minutes I'll show you how not secure that is by sending you all of your passwords. 🙂 Seriously though, while a password protected Excel file is better than a text file, it's only marginally better.
