Keeping Passwords Safe

With age, our ability to remember things declines. So I’ve finally decided to use a Password manager, specifically 1Password both the Mac and iPhone version. Currently, there’s a 20% discount if you go via Steel until 31 August 2009. So I decided to just purchase it even before the 30 day trial ended.

Now I can start using harder to break passwords and not have to remember every one of them. All I need to remember now for the most part is 2 long passwords (or one if I use the same for the Mac and iPhone) and a 4 digit code. Another thing I especially like is being able to store credit card info protected by a password. No need to pull out my credit card from my wallet if I’m doing online transactions (well for those that don’t support Paypal, like online food delivery).
