Password Vault – store all your passwords securely and give your brain a rest


passwordvault Password Vault   store all your passwords securely and give your brain a rest

Not a day goes by without some news about yet another break in at some massive database or other. If it’s not Target, it’s Adobe or Sony or, well you name it. So how do you protect yourself? You can’t, unfortunately. But what you can do is maintain some kind of password system.

One option is to use an online service like Lastpass.com to store hardcore, difficult to break passwords, or the other is to buy yourself a Password Vault like this one here. Neither solution will prevent crackers from breaking into an online service and stealing millions of login details, but it may help you switch and manage your passwords more easily.

The little gadget stores PIN numbers, passwords and login details, and is itself secured by a single password. So don’t forget that one. If someone tries to hack into it, it will lock for 30 minutes to help stop unauthorized access. No word on how many passwords it will hold, nor whether it will create any for you, but it does need 3 AAA batteries (the passwords are retained while you change batteries). Priced at $49.95.
