Macs come with the Keychain management system to save all your passwords and secret notes. Pastor is a similar sort of program which you can get for free.The program lets you store any sort of information such as passwords, private links, logins, serial numbers or secret notes to yourself.
The program may be a little counter-intuitive, as it lacks any guidance the first time you start it up, but is actually very easy to use.From the Pastor interface, select 'new entry' then enter all the relevant information including name, url and any password.
Pastor has an inbuilt password generator, which you can use to see if your protecting the entry well. Once you're satisfied with the password chosen just lock the entry via the button in Pastor's menu bar.I would suggest trying out Pastor if you're not totally convinced by Keychain and are looking for an alternate application for storing your passwords and not spend a penny.
