Rick from Placerville, CA

Rick wants to know what's the best password vault to use for the money.  Is there really a difference security wise? Leo says that LastPass is the one he has used in the past. But his current favorite is an open-source one called BitWarden (a sponsor of the TWiT network). There's also OnePassword, RoboForm. No matter what you use, let the password manager generate the new password.

Andrea from Long Beach, CA

Andrea's mother has problems remembering her passwords. What's the best way to do it? Leo says we all have a problem remembering them, and if it's easy to remember, there's a good chance it will be easily cracked. She'll want her password to be difficult, but by extension, that makes them difficult to remember. Writing them down isn't a bad idea as long as nobody has access to them. A password vault would be a good idea, where she would let the software generate all of her passwords and all she needs to remember is the master password.
