With nearly every service-based web site and webapp requiring a user ID and password, life can quickly get complex. Or worse yet, life may become highly insecure. On the one hand, we all should be using complex passwords to thwart off hackers but remembering them becomes a huge burden. Most of the time, we fall into the habit of using a single, easy-to-remember password across a number of sites. Unfortunately, this is the online equivalent of handing your car keys off to a thief. Over the past year I have come to know and love the Mac software application, 1Password. 1Password provides a highly secure repository for all of your online passwords and other sensitive information. Through browser-level integration, you can quickly save passwords into the 1Password application and retrieve previously saved passwords all with the click of a button. 1Password can also generate complex passwords for you which will frustrate even the most ardent hacker. But alas, how does this review fit into a web site which focuses on web-based applications? My friends at 1Password have recently unveiled what I will go on the record as saying, the single most useful webapp to date. With my.1Password.com, users are now able to safely synchronize their passwords from their local 1Password Mac application to the web enabling access on virtually any browser. You can now safely randomize and strengthen your online logins while only needing to remember a single password.
