What is the best program for safely managing passwords.  Since most new passwords are longer and require Caps, lower case, numbers, & symbols and recommendations of changing every two months; I need help with password management.  Any good suggestions?

oldrailroadgeek,
 
That is a very good question, as passwords keep getting more complex and it's important to have many passwords, rather than using one across many sites. I recommend Lastpass as a password keeper. You can have it installed across multiple computers and sync your passwords, it will generate random passwords for you, if you'd like, and you can log into sites from it. If you purchase the premium version (it's not expensive), you can also have your passwords synced on your phone.

Hi,
 
Another option if you want to avoid having your passwords on the net is to use KeePass

Sari, SleepyDude, & fooddelivery666;

     I thank the three of you for your recommendations.  I chose Last Pass as the program I will use, but again, thanks to all of you for taking the time to offer solutions.
