Lastpass

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016

A lot of people still use the same password for multiple websites, this is highly insecure, because if someone guesses or finds out your password, they also have access to all those sites you use it on.

But who wants to remember a whole bunch of passwords?

LastPass gives you the opportunity to make a master password for all applications and websites, your actual passwords are totally encrypted and nobody can decrypt them. This software captures your username and password upon sign-up or login and uses them later when you come back to the place you previously visited.

When you try to create a new password, LastPass gives you the opportunity to generate a strong password that is a combination of numbers, and small and capital letters.  In the browser’s toolbar you can automatically access different saved websites and you’ll be logged in straight away.

The software has two versions – free and paid. The one that you pay for hides all kinds of advertising, giving you a lot of space. This password manager will eliminate all duplicated and weak passwords that you possess, giving a lower chance for hackers to get to your information.

LastPass for applications captures and replays your passwords. This is a premium feature for paid users. You have to set up a strong master password, because anyone who has it can control everything that you have. If this password isn’t that strong, then you can also add multi-factor authentication.

The free edition of this software uses Google Authenticator. Thanks to this extra layer of authentication, only those who have your master password and smartphone can hack into your belongings. With the premium edition of the software, you can put a fingerprint authentication if your smartphone or laptop has this feature built-in. To make things impossible for hackers you can add an extra layer known as Yubikey. This is a tiny $25 USB that you can carry on your keychain. Once you associate it with the application, login will require both master password and this small device. If you don’t want to spend money on USB, there is an app called Sesame that you can put on any USB drive.

LinkStash – Cross-Browser Bookmark management

Friday, February 15th, 2008

Linkstash is a program for managing your bookmarks. It has surprisingly cool and useful features, considering most “bookmark manager” things don’t really do anything too amazing or especially useful. It manages all your bookmarks and works with all the main browsers, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Netscape and Opera, very useful if you like to use more than one browser. It also opens and closes with the browser.

It has lots of features including :

  • Dead links checker and updater,
  • Favorites sync,
  • Color highlighting of folders/links,
  • Fields for comments, ratings, etc.,
  • Secure encrypted password safe with automated password control for auto website log-on.

Its even available in a portable version!

I was very impressed with this program, definitely the best bookmark manager I’ve come across yet. Multiple backups, option to encrypt the whole bookmark file, even configure certain sites to open in certain browsers. Lots more features than I can go into detail with here.

Vidoop – Goodbye passwords?

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

At a first glance of the name, you’d be forgiven for guessing that this site had something to do with videos. It doesn’t. Vidoop is an online service that aims to let you log in to multiple sites without having to remember a password for each one. The difference between this and other password managers is how this is implemented.

Once you make a free account at Vidoop, (and install the optional firefox add-on), you will be given a selection of pictures with corresponding letters each time you want to log in to a website. You then type the corresponding letters to the pictures that match the topics you have previously chosen such as dog, flower, food, etc.

This aims to eliminate the need to remember passwords in a more secure way than conventional methods such as having your browser remember it for you or using password managers.

It’s certainly a unique idea but only time will tell if its a good one or not! Check it out for yourself here.

Password Agent is a useful program for anyone who has trouble remembering passwords. It lets you have a safe, secure place to save passwords and associated information.

Also you can use the built in password generator to make difficult to guess passwords for additional security. No need to worry about forgetting these yourself, as you can store them in the program of course.

It also works as a place to safely and privately keep general notes. I like how the whole program is also USB thumbdrive compatible so you could use this on any computer!
