Well I don't believe just because a product is closed source it's automatically insecure.

But why do you arbitrarily trust KeePass and not LastPass? KeePass could just as easily be lying to you about encrypting passwords. Is it because KeePass is open source and LastPass isn't so you know the inner workings? Is it because since KeePass store the files locally that makes them some how easier to check - if so how? For example you can't say "I tried opening the .kdbx file Keepass created with notepad and I couldn't see any of my passwords, therefore it's encrypted"

comment Where to keep key file used as composite key for Keepass 2
I am actually having trouble deciding between Keepass 2 and Lastpass. Pros of Keepass 1)more secure because everything is kept local Cons 1)doesn't easily integrate into a web browser Pros of Lastpass 1)works on every computer with an internet connection 2)don't have to worry about backing up - all administrative work done for you cons 1)less secure as the passwords are in the cloud 2)can only be used for websites e.g. not really designed to hold passwords for programs or external hard drives etc.

So you wouldn't use password managers like Lastpass at all then?

comment Forgetting passwords typed in too frequently
Ya but subvocilization doesn't work with strange characters, for example ~ and it's too long to say < and > and I always get the two mixed up

comment What are the pros and cons of using a password safe instead of writing passwords on paper?
@Flo agreed but my point was that computers are suseptable to way more damaged than paper, for example viruses, settings getting corrupt etc. sure someone can burn or break a piece of paper but all that could be done to a computer hard drive as well.
