Security is becoming an increasingly important issue with the way we use our smartphones and the internet for everything. You have multiple passwords for everything in your life and hackers are getting more adept at getting your information from just your phone. These five apps will help ease security concerns, whether it keeps track of your passwords, or helps you browse the web safely, you will get peace of mind for free.
Don’t worry about having to remember all your different passwords again with LastPass. The app keeps track of any passwords you may have and uses a secure key to log in to each so you don’t have to remember a different one for each site. Begin by creating an account and logging into all the sites you want the app to keep track of. Once everything is in, you can create a master password that only you will know. The app will then create strong passwords for every site you have that you don’t have to remember.
Losing photos can be the hardest part of having your phone stolen or hacked, but that’s where Private Photo Vault comes in.
