Matt Reider has created twofold free service called LockBin. LockBin is an AJAX website built in PHP. It stores our passwords securely, and uses OpenID to do so. It is sort of funny to me that it uses OpenID, because the technology was never intended to be used in this way. But it serves as a good way of encrypting data because I can save unique encryption keys for each user, without storing their keys anywhere on my server. The encryption key is their OpenID, which is located elsewhere and verified using a neutral 3rd party.

In addition to organizing your credentials, LockBin also lets you give feedback about the websites you use for online banking, email, insurance, or any other online service. By rating your bank's website, for example, you can help other people make decisions about which bank they should choose. These ratings are available to the public as a way of pressuring organizations to improve their customer service. All ratings are completely anonymous.
