How Can I Keep Track of Passwords?

Episode 1616 (34:11)

Steve from San Antonio, TX
LastPass

Steve wants to know about the Aeropex Headphones. Leo says he really likes them because they transmit the sound through the cheekbone beside the ear.

Steve also wants to know how he can keep track of passwords. Leo says that we do so many things now online, that passwords are out of control. That leads people to use the same password over and over, which is even worse than no password at all. So Leo recommends a password vault like LastPass or OnePassword. But the negative is, that if users lose their master password, they're really screwed. But when they add two-factor authentication, then it's OK. Leo suggests making a backup of passwords with the Vault, and keep them in a text file on a USB key that isn't accessible online.
