PASSWORD USB DRIVE

I'VE BEEN WORKING IN AN OFFICE FOR OVER 25 YEARS, AND WE ALL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.  LITTLE NOOGIES OF PAPER WITH PASSWORDS TO DIFFERENT WEBSITES, SCRATCHED OUT AND CHANGED, ILLEGIBLE, ETC.  IS THERE A WAY TO PROGRAM A USB DRIVE TO HOLD ALL YOUR PASSWORDS SO THAT YOU DON'T NEED THE PIECES OF PAPER?  SOMEBODY COULD MAKE A TON OF MONEY JUST WHERE I WORK WITH ONE OF THESE!

Well, HP has a Simple Pass finger print scanner that allows you to save a username and password and the computer will enter the info for you with the swipe of a finger. Unfortunatly, they are only equiped on their laptops. Mine, the Dv7 has one and I used to sign into this site before I posted my comment.
IIRC Mybusters showed how weak they can be (i.e. easily circumvented).
Yes, they are not perfect, but they would be better than a flash drive that would be much easier get your passwords from becasue there would be no security measures on that. I guess now it is more convienence than actual security.
That would be true if you "left the flash drive behind and plugged in" but I assumed the idea was to make it easy to take along with you for convenience...but I may have read more into it than was there....

Thanks for the reply! Sorry, I was kinda vague - I want the thumb drive to remember the site and password and enter them so I don't have to. Does that make sense?
Try something like kneepass portable.
Using his Knees might not work so well :-P But using KEEpass might LOL
:P
;-)
You can set most browsers to do that, unless your company IT monkeys have deliberately disabled that function.
