Password Managers

Written by on February 27, 2014 in PC Mike's NBC-TV stories with 2 Comments

We live in a world ruled by passwords. Almost everwhere we go online , we need a password. How do you keep track of them all? Some apps and web services can safely, securely and seamlessly manage your digital world. Here’s my suggestions…

Password Box is a free app for Apple and Android devices that uses encryption to store your account login and password information. You can store multiple accounts and then login in with one click, instead of having to enter in all the information. It’s easy to add and change info and besides your smart phone or tablet, it also works on your computer.

passwordsOne of the most secure password managers you’ll find is called 1Password. It works on all mobile platforms. This app generates complicated and very secure passwords for you…and remembers them. It’s a bit complicated to set up, however, especially on Android devices, which don’t see to have all the capabilities that the app offers for the iPhone. But then again, the iPhone app is $18. The Android app is free.

My favorite password manager is LastPass. It works on iPhones and Android and your computers. It is extremely simple to use, storing Web site passwords, credit card information and more behind a master password that you set up. It is very secure and powerful. It’s only drawback is to get full use of all the features like automatic login, you need to buy a $12 a year subscription.

  1. How about Dashlane for managing passwords?

  2. Nonetheless, if you need extra currency information,
    this app can do this too: you can view foreign money developments over a
    5 12 months period, graph any currency towards some other, convert any forex
    to another (all currencies of the world can be found on this app)
    or do just about some other thing you can consider if it entails any
    of the world’s currencies. Such open features allow its operating system to be used by many tablets
    manufacturers, both Big and small tech companies like

    for the smartphone platform, dearer handsets that are far more costly than normal cell-phones,
    which most likely initially hindered it from gaining a robust foothold in the mobile
    market.
