Password management, am I right?

If you're anything like the members of my family, you have a few weak passwords you use for various Web sites and services, and you can never remember which one goes where.

Maybe you write them down, but then invariably the Post-It note goes missing. Keeping them in a spreadsheet? Good plan, but that's hardly a secure spot for important data.

What you need is a password manager, a tool for securely storing all your passwords, generating hack-proof new ones for your online activities, auto-filling those passwords so you don't have to type them manually, and syncing them between your various computers and mobile devices.

Sounds great, right? One of the best tools for the job is RoboForm, and for a limited time, LivingSocial is offering a 2-year RoboForm Everywhere license for $15. Normally it would cost you $40.

RoboForm starts with a software client that's available for both Windows and Mac. It's basically a heavily encrypted database for all kinds of important info: passwords, credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, software registration codes, and so on.

But the software also integrates with your Web browser, offering to generate ultra-secure passwords for you as needed and apply those passwords whenever you sign into a site that requires one. It also offers automated online-form completion, meaning you won't have to type your name and address every time you buy something online. Very handy.

The RoboForm Everywhere license automatically syncs all your RoboForm data between your Windows/Mac computers and your mobile devices. (RoboForm apps are available for Android, BlackBerry, and iOS.)

If you're not already using a tool like this, you won't believe how much easier it makes your online life. And $15 for a two-year subscription is an outright steal. (You can turn it into an actual steal, too: As with other LivingSocial offers, if you can get three friends to buy in after you make your purchase, the deal is free.)

Have you found a password manager you like better? If so, tell me about it in the comments!
