QuoteI have read what you wrote, as others will, and if they know what they are talking about they will conclude that you do not. Perhaps, when you have gained a little more experience, you will arrive at the same conclusion. I am not playing a game with you, just trying to cut through the specious bluster.

Quote from: BurkeKnight on July 31, 2013, 07:36:55 PMUsing RoboForm is very good idea.It stores the passwords in your documents folder and is cross browser.Even integrates with Windows.http://www.roboform.com/
Quote from: BurkeKnight on July 31, 2013, 08:07:11 PMRoboForm does not send any personal info.If you pay for the desktop instead of just getting the free, you get more features.You also can set up a master password to further protect your passwords.

Quote from: BurkeKnight on August 01, 2013, 04:34:20 AMIt does not matter one iota where the password was stored. Browser, brain, it's all the same in this case.
Quote from: a10gf on July 31, 2013, 03:54:11 PMQuoteour opinion on the security protocolYes. I suppose most here have at least some of their personal forum related PW's stored (login, ftp, sql etc) in the browser, and feel secure doing so. Anyone ever heard of, or read about, any browser stored passwords ever being exploited ? (have never seen this mentioned anywhere so far, but I'd guess the hackers must be working on it).
