Most of us are obliged to memorize a lot of passwords into our heads to use them in email accounts, social network sites, online bank accounts, etc. It will be effective storing all these passwords into an application so that you can easily arrange them without the need to memorize each new password you get.

This application is called Passafe which is designed for Gnome and acts as a password manager that allows users to save details like the username, password, URL, and a field where you can add some descriptions related to the saved password.

Passafe also allows to access saved URLs directly from the application with the possibility to copy to clipboard saved usernames and passwords. To install Passafe on Ubuntu 11.10/11.04, open the terminal and run this sequence of commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mdeslaur/pasaffe
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pasaffe

Once Passafe is launched, you are required to submit a password for the application so as only you can use the application:

You can now start adding passwords using the Add button:

That's it!
