Everything seems to require a password now, from your bank to your yoga studio. As encryption gets stronger, the passwords required get more convoluted. On top of that, you should have a different password for each Web site that requires a login -- no reusing your pet's name. Sorry, Fluffy.

Enter LastPass, a free app that stores all your passwords in one place. It sounds scary, but this storage space is itself password-protected, which means you only need to remember one master password to access LastPass. It even stores online form information, like your name and address, to save time on new sites.

LastPass, too, works everywhere, even across browsers. It can sync automatically between Mac, Windows and Linux computers; iPhone, Symbian, Android, Windows and Blackberry smartphones; and Firefox, Explorer, Safari, Chrome and Opera browsers -- and probably anything that's coming on the digital horizon.
