Store Passwords using Hints with Password Clues:
Password Clues is a simple app with an extremely pleasing UI. When you launch the app for the first time, you would be asked to signup by creating a master password. Enter a strong password and re-enter it to confirm your sign up. If you find it hard to think of a strong password, you might also use some free Password Generator apps.
Once you sign up successfully and enter your account, you would see an empty status with a sad smiley face at the background. You can add an account by clicking at the Plus (+) button at the top on the left panel. This would open up another panel where you can add details for your account, including the website or service name, username, and password. After filling the information, you can click on Submit. This will add your details to the Accounts list. Likewise, you can add as many account details to the app as you want.
The next time you want to view a password for any of the added accounts, you can click on its entry in the Accounts panel. This would show you a password hint, like the one shown in the first screenshot.
This type of hint would enable you to recognize the password easily. Like the hint in the first screenshot depicts that the password starts with letter “S” and ends with “0”, has special characters, digits, and both case letters, and is 14 characters long. If you want more hint, you can click on the Eye icon at the center of the figure to open the second hint. This would be sufficient to remeber quickly what exactly the password is; and is safe too!
