GeneralShould I allow google to manage my passwords? Do you? Pin

So, I manage my passwords locally - I've never really invested in a password manager, mainly because I JUST DON'T TRUST THEM. When I see terms and conditions that say, "If we get hacked and someone gets your passwords, we will pay you lots of money to compensate our error."

When it comes to security, I'm paranoid. I prefer to manage it myself and not depend on other people. Looking at JSOP... Another example: Report: Amazon awarded secret $10B NSA cloud computing contract, Microsoft files protest - GeekWire[^]

I have no idea why the NSA thinks this is a good idea. Maybe they aren't putting much interesting stuff up there, but still.... Sorry, ooo shiny I got distracted.

So, I guess google has added something to chrome that will magically save all my passwords in their vault, and frankly, I think that's just creepy. Hell, they probably have them already now that I think about it.

Comments?
