Third-party applications that protect your passwords, documents and folders
How are you? Have they found interesting the two previous articles on security IOS and OS X ?
Leave me your thoughts in the comments on this post .
We have reached the third and final article on security, I hope it’s as interesting as the previous ones. Let’s see how we protect passwords , documents that we carry in our devices and folders that it created eg Dropbox with personal information .
Reasons for using third-party applications
Although our Mac and iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad are already very safe, never hurts to add security , especially when that security complements and do not imply a change for which already include our devices.
We will discuss two applications whose use is different and their accessibility is checked. We know there are many more, perform a search online we get a bunch of free and paid options , each person must choose the most comfortable fit.
1 PassWord :
This great application has received many awards and is recognized by millions of users worldwide who use it daily to ensure your passwords, credit card details and logins pages and online services.
the great advantage of this application is that you only have to remember your master password because if we do not remember the application itself will not do it for us for safety .
Many passwords to memorize and it will force us to include in these numbers, capital and other signs , making it difficult to retain data in memory so many .
This app creates us if we want to secure passwords automatically, which do not need to memorize because the teacher we access everywhere. The secure password is the one that is stored on the websites and online services where we have our own and the teacher is nowhere to be seen , only in our head, is not recommended write it down on paper as he does many people , of course that you should not say it to anyone.
Is available for all types of operating systems of our computers and mobile devices , so we can use it without problems. Dropbox also allows you to save a Pendrive or an encrypted document safely containing all passwords and information that it generated with 1Password . This is useful if we want to access our bank or website from a different to ours and of course computer, we do not know the passwords that are long , then introduce the pendrive or accede to our dropbox account , open the document that contains the information and introduce the master password to access that document and see the personal data to be entered into the online site you want . Once we close the document , we will have to enter the master password to access it , so it’s okay if we leave it on a computer that is not ours , will always be a safe place .
1Password closes automatically after few minutes without using it , all to ensure your privacy .
