I will never put lots of passwords into a vault

You make some great points.
I understand and I agree. My passwords are not in a vault. They are generated every time.
In my app, you have to 1) pick the right "site key" (creates hash) 2) draw the correct pattern (salts the hash) and the subsequently generated (not stored) hash is used as your password.
So my passwords are not stored anywhere, they are generated from the key and the salt (drawn pattern). Mostly I think the idea is interesting, but as you said if passwords are leaked then no password method is secure. Some are just more secure than others. Smile | :)
