I can't say that you totally can't store passwords in your mobile phone but try to remember if you can. Do a phone lock just in case you lose your hp. :)

Eh, I don't think it is safe to save any passwords in your mobile, especially if you intend to save it together with the corresponding usernames, login details, bank info etc. Even if you may have lock your hp with a pin, you can never be sure that the person who got hold of it can't get pass it. Given today's technology advancement, all the more we should take precautions.

If there is really a need to save your passwords in the mobile, I suggest you save it randomly without the corresponding account details. Maybe as part of your to-do list, calendar events etc and not to name it under a folder called, "Passwords".

Else, can also explore devising a secured passwords in creative way, such as the "Bruce Schneier's Method". I have submitted a related article for sharing :), pending approval. Here is the link .

These are my two cents' worth, hope it is useful.
