How to securely maintain all of your passwords

If you believe you are technologically challenged and need help with managing all of your passwords — This is for you.

One of the most aggravating things about apps and the web is having to maintain all of your passwords. These days, a password is needed for many things such as checking emails, signing into the home WiFi, checking a bank account, signing into your computer, unlocking your phone, unlocking your locker or safe, and logging into a Facebook, Snapchat or Instagram — That is just to name a few. It’s unrealistic to memorize all of your passwords. It’s unsafe to reuse the same password for all of your login accounts. So should we do?

What if I told you, you could lock all of your logins, passwords, and bank account information away in a secure vault that can only be accessed by one single password? That’s exactly the purpose of iCloud Keychain, LastPass, and 1Password. All three are password managers that allow you to keep a collection of all of your passwords in one place. Similar to that notepad you have at your desk with all of your written passwords — which is incredibly unsafe to do. With password managers, all you have to remember is one password, the password to the password manager, your vault. Still not understanding? Here are the steps:
  1. Choose your password manager (Note: iCloud Keychain is only for iPhone, iPad, and Mac)
  2. Download LastPass or 1Password in the Google Play or App Store
  3. Create your password manager account on the designated websites/apps with a unique password (i.e. No@cce$$4U)
  4. Start populating your password manager with your accounts and passwords across the web.

Once you have done this and organized all of your passwords inside of your password manager, the only password you will need to remembered is the password to your password manager that holds all of your passwords. That’s it! It’s a neat trick to share with your friends and family and now I am sharing it with you.

Review: iPhone X is great, but Pixel 2 shows how to turn it up a notch

In late October millions of people, including myself, stayed up at on a Thursday night/Friday morning to preorder the iPhone X. It's the usual story when new iPhone's preorder floodgates open up. That was my first preordering experience with Apple and it was fine. Many others had a few issues. I stayed up for the first time because this was the first time, in a long time, that Apple has made major changes to iPhone. What I had in my pocket at the time was an iPhone 7 Plus. I had the iPhone 6S Plus and the first generation Google Pixel before it. After purchasing and using the iPhone X for little over 3 months and switch back to a Pixel 2, I wanted to write about what I liked, what I didn't like, and why I switched back to Android with the Pixel 2.

The Hardware -- The GoodThe iPhone X is sexy af. Yea, you read that correctly. From when I first opened the box and when I first placed it in my hands, it felt like I was putting a Rolex on my wrist. Though it may not have been a…

News: Google explains their design secrets behind Pixel phones

Last year, Google did the same by giving CNET the inside scoop on the first generation Pixel phone's design. This time, Google shared its secret sauce across the tech news media.

Normally the word "design", in relation to smartphones, is synonymous with Samsung and Apple, but Google has strengthened their efforts in their smartphone design to bring their artistry into the conversation. Android Pit, a website that covers news about technology and business, got the inside scoop interviewing Alberto Villarreal, the designer of the Google Pixel 2 XL, on Pixel phones design secrets.

In the U.S., a 64GB Pixel 2 will set you back $649 outright, or $27.04 monthly when purchased through Google's financing program. That raises to $749 for a 128GB model ($31.21 per month on financing) if you want 128GB of storage.

The Pixel 2 XL starts at $849 with 64GB of storage ($35.38/month on financing), or $949 for 128GB ($39.54/month on financing).

The Pixel 2 is available in three colo…

Pixel 3: This Could Be It...

Tech news sites erupted when people, that installed the latest Android P beta on available Android phones, noticed a specific smartphone mockup. Hidden in the settings when switching to the new "home pill", there's a smartphone like no other as seen below.

A lot of people, including myself, believe that this is the first look of the upcoming Pixel 3. For the past two years, Google has held a "Made By Google" event to show off it's latest hardware. The Pixel, phone by Google, has been the highlight of the event. Like the talented designer that Ben Geskin @VenyaGeskin1 is, he took to his skills to create a lifelike mockup and it looks absolutely gorgeous.

Why do I think this is pretty much spot on to what we can expect Google to announce in the fall? If you currently have a Pixel 2 and head to the "Active Edge" settings, you can see that the design of the phone is located for instructional purposes.

What do you think? Did Google just reveal the desi…
