Cyber Protection for Travelers


KeePass Password Safe - a secure password manager for your sensitive login information


Do you worry about cyber crime and identity theft when checking e-mail, credit card charges and online banking in Internet Cafes? I do.  It’s the main reason I avoid accessing personal information on a public computer.  KeePass,  a free/open-source password safe which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way, might just be the answer to lugging along a laptop. With KeePass, you can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key-disk and remember one single master password to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).

It allows you to organize your entries into categories and offers several ways to conveniently enter your username/password; you can use drag and drop, copy to the clipboard, or create auto-type sequences that can enter the login information with a single click.
