Safe (Free) "online" places to save log-in info !

I know this sounds like somewhat of a "security" issue BUT...does anyone know if there's a safe way (free) where I can save all of my log-ins/passwords ? I've had a couple of hard drive crashes now and I'm nsick of losing all that info ! I've actually been savin all of my log-in info to a folder in my webmail.BUT,....THAT'S TEDIOUS ! AND...I tend to only update that about once a month !! I need something like a "social" (But,not "public") place where I can save all of of my log-in info that's safe (Other than my pc) ??????? And,if it makes any difference (In case,there's an add-on) I generally use Firefox for my browser.

If you want to use LastPass browser extension to manage passwords and logins you can also use LastPass Pocket (download app to USB) and run it from there to open your encrypted LastPass file and store your logins in the portable app.

LastPass via USB | User Manual scroll down to see LastPass Pocket

Get browser extension here. (Not LastPass Universal Windows Installer) see other links on the page

Save logins online? LastPass does that via browser extension.

EDIT: You need one master password to access them.

Back them up? LastPass Pocket does that via USB.

KeePass is also a great password safe KeePass Password Safe - I use that for saving all my internet, banking, software and hardware passwords (and a lot more besides). OK, you have to remember one password to get into KeePass but then you can get in from any Windows PC if you do what I do and keep the password file in a DropBox folder. Also, there are variants of the program for Android & iPad/iPhone (see this page) Downloads - KeePass - I can recommend KeePass2Android which I use on an Android tablet.

Callender...thank you very much for your reply.I've downloaded lastpass.But,I'm having nothing ut problems with it.At this point,I don't even trust.Firefox tells me "Your connection is not secure"."The owner of links.t.lastpass.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website".

links.t.lastpass.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.pages00.net, *.silverpop.com, *.engage.spqa1.com, *.engage0.silverpop.com, *.engage1.silverpop.com, *.engage2.silverpop.com, *.engage3.silverpop.com, *.engage4.silverpop.com, *.engage5.silverpop.com, *.engage6.silverpop.com, *.links.mkt31.net, *.links.mkt41.net, *.links.mkt51.net, *.links.mkt61.net, *.login.spqa1.com, *.login0.silverpop.com, *.login1.silverpop.com, *.login2.silverpop.com, *.login3.silverpop.com, *.login4.silverpop.com, *.login5.silverpop.com, *.login6.silverpop.com, *.marketer1.silverpop.com, *.marketer2.silverpop.com, *.marketer3.silverpop.com, *.marketer4.silverpop.com, *.pages.spqa1.com, *.pages01.net, *.pages02.net, *.pages03.net, *.pages04.net, *.pages05.net, *.pages06.net, *.recp.pages.spqa1.com, *.recp.spqa1.com, *.rm02.net, *.rm04.net, *.sc.pages01.net, *.sc.pages02.net, *.sc.pages03.net, *.sc.pages04.net, *.sc.pages05.net, *.spqa1.com, *.sc.pages06.net Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

That means that your Firefox installation has a problem. It's either not up to date or configuration is wrong.

Have a look at this:

No connection to any sites in Firefox

Check your antivirus as per this thread: Your connection is not Secure

Maybe get FEBE Extension for Firefox to create a profile backup before fully removing them fresh installing Firefox?

a problem with firefox

Before you consider any of the above report any problems found when visiting these sites:

How's My SSL?

Qualys SSL Labs - Projects / SSL Client Test

Also in Firefox enable "Menu Bar" and check for updates.

Right click blue part of Firefox window and tick "Menu Bar"

From the drop down list under "Help" - choose "About Firefox" to check for and download updates.

The ideas of "online" and "safe" are mutually exclusive, choose one and throw the other away. Basically, there is no safest place than your own computer put put sensitive information, specially passwords.

Many programs claim safe storage, but more often than not they don't properly secure their storage or make it too easy to crack, and even if they do, you must put your trust in them that they'll not look at your passwords. It's simply to risky to use someone's else system (marketed as "the cloud") to store your most valuable secrets.

Use a good password manager, but an entirely local one. Make sure you set a good password (or even better, a keyfile) for it. Then you can upload to some file-sharing service with confidence they'll not be able to decrypt it (assuming the software has no bugs.......) or just carry the database in a pendrive. That gives you safety, but not "online".

That's a very dangerous assumption. How do you know that it's really the case?
In the vast majority of cases, certificate errors means a security compromise or site mismanagement. The only case I would deem it as a false positive is a wrong local date, or a known browser bug.

Because I don't get that issue on my machine at home or my machine at work.

From LastPass support:

LastPass - Why does my browser indicate that LastPass has an invalid or expired security certificate?

Most certificate warnings are caused because your PC's clock is not set correctly. Verify that your clock is set to the correct day, month, and year and retry.

If you still experience the issue, then your PC may have had its default list of certificates modified in some manner.
Would like to see any SSL/ Certificate problem listed as requested.

Check computer clock here:

Accurate Time

Also suggest:

Get RCC.zip from here: Index of /files

Run it and it will scan FF Certificate Store.

From my machine - no problem with certificate.

That only means that the connection has been safely established from YOUR computer, not necesarily the OP's. The "works for me" catchphrase is nice and all, but bad to blindly follow specially in case of security, even more concerning a site that you want to give all your passwords to (which is of course a terrible idea in itself).

Seeing the exact error would allow us to determine the real cause of the warning.
