I wish there was a little reminder when logging out that asks Are you sure? Or a beep. I do not want to log out or forget and then can't get back in.

Only thing I can recommend is to write down your usernames and passwords for each website you visit. I have a "little black book" for all my passwords & stuff like that, because I'm paranoid and have very complex passwords which I can never remember, especially now that I'm older.

Nice to know there are other paranoid people out there. I use a recipe card box filled with 3x5 index cards.
You men and your little black books....

My little black book isn't so little anymore. As my needs changed, so did the size of my black book.
Black is my choice of colour - I had other options. But my Day-Timer is my constant companion, my memory in a pocket. Well, the current size no longer fits in my pocket. But I'm sure I come across as a half-assed preacher since I guess it could be mistaken for a bible by those who don't know me.
Actually my password list is in a special subdirectory on my computer.
Unless one knows where to look they won't find it. Besides if my wife ever finds it, that's no big loss (I hope) and my daughter isn't computer literate enough to find it. She's 12 and can't even read a road map! But black books are important for those of us who need memory aids.

I used to depend on Google Chrome to store passwords. I purchased a new computer about a year ago, but I could not find a way to view my passwords (fixed in recent versions of Chrome). I found a password recovery utility on the Internet which successfully recovered them. Then I thought about what I'd just done--whether I'd uploaded my passwords to an identity thief. I spent the next 3 or 4 hours going down the list and changing them all.

I used to use the password vault on my BlackBerry until I lost the password for it. Now I have a spreadsheet (both hard-copy and password protected in the PC) where I keep track all of my usernames and passwords. It would be nice if all of these websites would standardize their password requirements. I'd love to have just one username and maybe three passwords.

SqliteStudio. Uses the sqlite3 database engine. You can file anything with that, so passwords are a snap.
You are already using sqlite3 if you have a smart phone or use any net browser (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, etc)
The price is right too.
runs on Windows 9x/2k/XP/2003/Vista/7, Linux, MacOS X, Solaris, FreeBSD and
should work on other Unixes (not tested yet).
I have been using it for over 4 years now. The stuff just works.
What's not to like?

Truecrypt is an excellent tool...provided you trust the computer you use it on, or keep it completely off the internet.
It's freeware, just search for it, and their site discusses some situations where way more paranoia is justified than for here...
