Bonus Posting This Week! I have to leave this information behind because it’s something I get asked almost daily.
How do I remember all my passwords?
Answer: I don’t. I use a password manager called 1Password. There’s even a 30 Day Free trial so you can test it out before spending $50 on the software. Get it here…
And that’s it. It’s the best kept secret in the tech world. 1Password is your password and identity manager. It’s so much better than other simple password managers I’ve used in the past including my MAC’s Keychain. 1Password works directly with your browser, saves your user names and passwords, and creates strong, unique passwords for each site you use. 1Password can then automatically and securely log you in, enter credit card information, and fill registration forms, all while encrypting your information. With this little program you will only need to remember one password. Hence why it’s called “1Password”.
Securely sync your data over-the-air between Macs, iPhones, and iPads with Dropbox, or locally over Wi-Fi
Yes, there are iPhone and iPad apps for 1Password that will sync your passwords on all your devices. I use Dropbox as my primary form of syncing between devices. 1Password will not work with your primary browser on IOS devices like it does on the desktop. 1Password has it’s own stand alone apps. These apps do have their own browsers that can access your 1Password data but no word on when 1Password will ever work with your IOS browser like on the desktop.
Store other sensitive information in Secure Notes
Yes, store all your bank and credit card information in 1Password. You can then fill out forms securely using 1Password. The program is encrypted so your data should be safe in the event of the loss of any of your computer equipment.
Create Strong Passwords
Passwords provide the first line of defense against unauthorized access to any accounts you use online. The stronger your password, the more protected your accounts will be from hackers and malicious software. You should make sure you have strong passwords for all accounts on your computer and any accounts you use online.
So that’s my bonus posting for the week. I hope this one helps because this may be the best way to secure your computer. Another way would be to make sure you have an awesome anti-virus program. You can find that here…
