Do you have trouble remembering all of the passwords you use across the Internet? Some people try to solve this problem by using the same username and password for multiple sites. The problem with that is if a hacker gains access to one of your accounts, they’ll try those same credentials on the most common websites, probably ones you use. On the other hand, changing your username and password for every site can get confusing. So what’s the solution? 1Password by Agilebits.
