Create a 'password safe' for online passwords
Authored by: themacnut on Dec 05, '05 07:49:59AM

Um, but why not just use the Keychain? It's about as secure as your encrypted disk image, and keeping multiple passwords securely was pretty much what it was made for.

The Keychain IS a "password safe"

Yes you could use the keychain access utility. It would also work. It's just less convenient than just clicking on a document icon in the dock thats all.

Apple really should have done that for new users, but I guess they have to leave us SOMETHING to complain about :-)

What Could Be More Convenient?

I would have to agree with TheMacnut and many other posters here. The keychain was designed for this and is about the easiest thing on the planet to use. One time only you need to type in your username and password at the protected site and then click on the default blue button in the dialogue that appears to save the password.
