As you know, my accounts were hacked a few months ago and it I learned so much from that experience. I could of avoided the entire situation by doing a few simple steps. One of which is to use a secure password management system. The one I use, is 1Password and that’s why I wanted to have them on the show.
Most of us aren’t great at technology, so we end up not taking the steps we need to take. So the purpose of this episode is to give you the tools and confidence you need to move forward and protect yourself. What is so amazing about 1Password is there continual effort to make their program better and easier for us to use. The largest team in the company is their customer support team, and they pride themselves on providing great customer service. 1Password is a place where you can keep all of your personal information safe and secure. You can store everything from your usernames, passwords, and websites. The great thing is when you use 1Password, you never have to remember a single password ever again. Now, I’m sure you’re thinking, wait a second… if I put all of my personal private info in to 1 place, then what’s keeping someone from just hacking that and getting all of it. At that point you kind of feel like you’re just making it easy for the bad guy. However!!! This is not the case with 1Password, and this is another reason why they are above other companies that offer this service. 1Password actually stores none of your information. It is all located only on the device in which you use the application. And that information is heavily encrypted.
1Password doesn’t just do passwords; they also produce encrypted answers to your security questions. This feature is huge! Why!? Because we all live our lives very publically. Social media is an incredible thing. But it also puts a lot of your personal information out to the world; information that hackers use to answer your security questions. So 1Password has the ability to create encrypted random answers to your questions, and also stores all of these answers for you so you don’t have to remember them.
We go even deeper in this episode about how to download the program and how to properly use it. You are putting your accounts at risk by not taking these steps to protect yourself.
