LastPass is a great free service to store and creates unlimited login ids and passwords. You can download its mobile app.

 

Whenever you sign up for a new site, you just have to click once and it will generate a strong password. You can go for some easy passwords to remember. This service can easily remember all of your login credentials, no matter how many times you register for a domain. It will present a clean drop-down list of your login.

    • I’ll second that. All the tools are great and useful, but Evernote is probably the most useful of the lot in terms of how much it will help you automate. As always, Philip, great read on this blog. And you too, Mary. Keep up the good work.
