Secure Password Hints and App

As we spend more of our time online and are using software for all aspects of our lives, it is more important than ever to make sure our information is secure.  The start of that security is your password.  How can you make sure your passwords stay secure?  Here are some tips:

1. Use a unique email address for your passwords
2. Provide extended answers to security questions
3. A phrase is better than an alpha-numeric password

For a more secure login, try the app 1Password. "In addition to web usernames and passwords, 1Password saves a variety of information that you might find in your wallet (licenses, social security numbers, credit cards, etc.), software serial numbers, non-web account information (like iTunes and e-mail) and freeform secure notes to store any data you’d like to keep safe from prying eyes."
