Keeping your passwords secure is growing in importance. It seems like every few months, websites are getting hacked and usernames and passwords are revealed for the world to see. Using the same password on various sites can increase your chances of having your accounts breached on multiple occasions.
We know--it's way easier to remember one phrase than a ton of different ones. Fortunately, there's password management software out there that can help you keep track of all of your different accounts and their unique logins. 1Password is one of our favorites, because it allows you to create, store, and manage all of those accounts and passwords, as well as store account information, notes, software licenses, and even your credit card information--all without the fear that it'll be discovered by prying eyes.
Read on to learn how to set up 1Password and take the next step toward a more secure online presence.

1Password for iPad is the first app we installed on our new iPads. It makes keeping unique, complex passwords, logins and other information secure, and it works in tandem with desktop and iPhone versions to keep everything in sync.

Agile Web Solutions' 1Password password-storing and security app has

into bringing a new version of its award-winning app to the iPad, following successful
releases on Mac and iPhone.
