1Password is a superb password vault / password manager app – for iPad, iPhone, Mac, and Windows. It’s on sale right now at a full 50% off – down from $17.99 to $8.99. This sale has a very particular theme –it is titled ‘Heartbleed Sale’.
Of course this is a week where we should all be giving a great amount of thought to how we handle our passwords – as it’s the week where we’re learning about Heartbleed, which has been described as the worst bug ever on the internet. It has also been described like so by leading security expert Bruce Schneier:
“Catastrophic” is the right word. On the scale of 1 to 10, this is an 11.
If you haven’t already done so, its worth reading up about Heartbleed and figuring out which of the sites and services you use have been affected by it – and changing your passwords at an appropriate time.
And to look for a good password manager app if you don’t already have one.
Here’s an App Store link for 1Password; it’s a universal app that is designed for both iPad and iPhone.
