Use Excel to Keep Your Passwords Safe

A simple way to keep your passwords in a secure place is to create an Excel worksheet, enter your passwords and other important information about your web login or account. Once you have saved the file, you can lock it with a password (Now that is a password you will have to remember!). Here is how you do it in Office for Mac 2011:

Once you have created and saved your password file in Excel, go to the File drop down menu, and scroll down to Passwords:

From there, you can choose a password for your file

If you are using an older version of Office, go to Excel>Preferences>Security and go through the same steps to create a password. 

Once you have saved and secured your file, save it to either 1) Dropbox or a 2) Flash Drive that you either keep with you or store away from your computer.
