In today’s world of never-ending passwords you need some format to keep these safe. Some of us have the ability to rattle off numbers and passwords at will.
However, there are those of us that need the ability to ‘remember’ these items without actually having to remember each one. SplashData’s software platform SplashID gives you the ability to store these passwords in a secure format on both the users computer and a variety of portable devices (i.e. Palm OS, Blackberry, PocketPC, Smartphone, etc). The items are stored using the Blowfish encryption technology (256 bit) making it very secure and accessible using only one password to access the application. The items can be modified on either the computer or the handheld device and the items update via a sync function. (Desktop versions are only available for Windows and MacOS platforms) Each entry in the program can be identified using any number of user defined categories (i.e. Internet passwords, Credit Card info, Frequent Traveler Programs, etc) and separated by types (Travel, Bills, Personal, Work). There is also the ability to modify the multiple fields for each category for the specific information you require. Overall the program is a useful package for those that have difficulty remembering important passwords and information. It can be especially useful for those that have an overload of passwords and other information they need to recall at the most inopportune moments.
BitDefender is an anti-virus software that includes anti-spam and firewall. In addition, the newest version (number 10) features privacy protection tool, a tool for safe web surfing, as well as a root-kit detection and removal tool.
The software is easy to configure and use. If you are always online, it will update itself regularly, without your input. This relative newcomer in the field of antivirus software, of Romanian origin, quickly won accolades from reviewers all over the world. Just do a quick search on the internet and see for yourself! I have been using this software for about one year now, and give it the highest mark. It has faithfully kept my system free of infection. Of course, if you choose to activate all the tools offered by BitDefender, you will pretty much tie your own hands by making your web surfing experience very cumbersome indeed, with BitDefender asking you every two minutes if you agree to accept this or that cookie. That is why I generally instruct this software to do certain things only, and as for the rest, I rely on my own common sense.
