App-etite: 1Password makes logging in simpler

Remembering passwords is awful. That’s something nearly everyone can agree on, whether you’re a technophile or someone who barely uses the Internet.

1Password is one of many options to keep all those pesky passwords in one place without having to resort to reusing easy passwords that leave you vulnerable to hacking.

With this app, you can store passwords in a locker, which can be synced across devices through Dropbox and iCloud to access them as you browse.

You can generate new passwords in the app – though it’s not the most convenient process. The app features its own browser, which makes it even easier to access your credentials.

Overall, this is a useful app that can give you peace of mind. That said, many aspects of the service – particularly in its setup process – could be more intuitive. Free, for iOS and Android devices.
