The last word in security for passwords

Application: Strip Password Manager Platform: iPhone, iPad Price: US$9.99; free for Lite version

Remembering a password is easy - when you only need one. But with all the ID-theft horror stories circulating, relying on a single PIN for all your accounts is a security strategy for only the bravest - or the most careless.

Tales of encryption

People do important things on their Macs and, as such, the work they do must be kept private. My computer stores research notes, patents, business strategies, celebrity contact information, customer credit-card details, trade secrets - all things I would prefer unauthorised people never saw.
