Secure Passwords

Keep it secret, keep it safe

First rule

Securing your passwords and being safe online

Quite often people need to use passwords for so many reasons, such as online banking, website logins, forum logins, email accounts and so the list goes on. Unless you have the brain of a super computer, inevitably it will be impossible to remember so many different passwords, and for this reason most people will then setup online accounts but tend to use the same password everywhere. This is really not a good idea and if someone manages to guess a password for one of your accounts, the chances are that they will try using the same password on other accounts you may have, in the hope that you have used the same password again.

If you are sensible, you will not use the same password for all of your online activities, and keeping these passwords safe is critical to preventing identity theft, protecting your own security, maintaining your own privacy and so much more. A great way of doing this is to choose software that can keep this kind of data and information safe, and we present two options for doing just that.

Password Hacker



Efficient Diary

Software Encryption

Efficient Diary is a free software download, with options to purchase a pro version if you want to. The free version however is so excellent, that unless you want specific abilities you would be fine using it. It has a search and find facility, and its layout and feel is similar to using Microsoft Word. More importantly, you will set a login password (that means you only need to remember just one password and not hundreds), and the software encrypts all the data so that your private information is fully protected.

It has no "nag screens", it is free and the software vendors do update the software from time to time as well. It has no spyware and does an excellent job of providing a safe way of keeping your valuable data safe!

Once on that page choose Free Edition and Portable Edition Available. Free Download Now >>
And under the section Download Efficient Diary choose Free Editions, and pick the one that suits you. On a main computer system or laptop, we suggest the first option there.
