Over a period, I have used many password protection software, but this one appears to be the best I have used so far.

1Password can create strong, unique passwords for you, remember them, and restore them, all directly in your web browser. Also it can sync between your details between your mac, iPhone and Ipad.

You need to buy one license for your mac and another license for your iPhone and iPad, all you need is your drop box configured in these devices. Eventhough priced on a bit higher side, this is definitely a useful application.

If you are working with website development or want to block or redirect access to specific domains, you have probably edited the system file /etc/hosts like me.
