Re: [PLUG] Password Mangers

I tried one of the "KeePass" Linux versions a few months ago, I'm not 100% sure which one. KeePass is .Net, which means Mono on Linux, and while you can make arguments both ways I don't really want Mono installed.

I found that version exceptionally ugly, and uninstalled all of it.

I use PasswordSafe, which was originally Windows but has been in Linux beta for years now, and has even made it into the Mint18 repos. It is less cross-platform than some, but it works for me.

While I get the convenience of the various on-line and in-the-cloud tools, I'd personally never use one in a million years. I'd never use the "automated" ones either. PasswordSafe can do an "auto-type" but otherwise it's purely manual, and I like it like that.
