A few moments ago I realized I have forgotten my master password - a major no-no!
I checked my usual places for storing such confidential information (which is mostly migrating to PasswordMaker itself - I'm using it less as a *maker* and more of a place to store secure info... with the nice ability to auto-populate web pages...)
Anyway, it's not there...
What if I forget my Master Password?
You're out of luck.
Fortunately, I'm lazy, so I've stored the master password both in memory and on disk - so I don't have to type it each time I use PasswordMaker (which is probably why I've forgotten it... :)
But because of that, I can bring up PasswordMaker...
First thing I did was File|Export and saved everything (including the master password) as an RDF file. Not sure if that's actually useful without the master password (will I need it to import on another computer? probably...)
Then I did a File|Export and saved it as HTML. Brought that HTML file up in FireFox and *bingo*! There's the master password - unencrypted!
That's surely a security risk, so you don't want to keep that file around for long! (and maybe even securely delete it...)
But I'm glad that option is there! Otherwise I'd have to clear everything out, create a new master password, and import all my accounts.
