I use AI Roboform to manage my passwords. I have built up more than a thousand password over the years.

I'm pretty sure there is no Linux version of RoboForm. Is there something similar for Linux\Ubuntu?

Thanks...

typically its not a good idea to have a browser remember passwords, but lucky for you the browsers and tools in linux save most passwords.

I haven't used any of these but a search of the repositories shows:



$ apt-cache search -n password
libdbix-password-perl - Perl module for creating a global password file for DB passwords
libterm-readpassword-perl - ask the user for a password
mypasswordsafe - Easy-to-use password manager
password-gorilla - a cross-platform password manager
zope-passwordresettool - password reset tool for Plone


Looks like mypasswordsafe or password-gorilla could be an option.

I have looked myself but have not found anything comparable to RoboForm. I have settled on Revelation Password Manager. Unfortunately, it is just a standalone password manager. You might also try out KeePassX if you are using KDE.

What about the KDE Wallet? I use Opera to remember all my passwords, so although I'm a KDE user, I really can't vouch for it.

KeePass Password Safe is a free, open-source, light-weight and easy-to-use password manager for Windows. You can store your passwords in a highly-encrypted database, which is locked with one master key or key-disk. KeePassX is the Linux version keeping database format compatibility.

You beat me to it. I use keepass for years now and it's stable and easy to use in both windows and linux.

try lastpass.com ! plugins for Linux and windows, it does the job great ! - imports from Roboform, FREE, and BETTER, no arrogance towards Linux.

I switched completely.

+1 for Keepass
Installed 5 minutes ago and I can see it beats Revelation and Gpass.
