Passwordmaker: Manage all your passwords with a master password

Are you one of those, who can't resist the temptation of using single password (at most two or three) for all applications and websites. You know this isn't secure, yet you do it anyway. Why? Because it's difficult to remember a unique password for each and every web site that requires one.

Sounds interesting, then read on.

Passwordmaker, a Mozilla firefox add-on can manage all your passwords with one single master password. It is unique for the website.

For generating it, you key-in the master password and the URL of the site. Then based upon a complex one-way hash algorithms it generates a encrypted password and copies it into your clipboard, from where you can paste it into the website form. The important thing is that the master password is not at all stored anywhere.

Coming from Mozilla, it is safe enough to be trusted. Click here to download and install or click here to know more about it.
