1Password available at 50% off regular price
The developer of 1Password is making it available at 50% off until November 30. For some time now I've been recommending a password storage program called 1Password. It keeps all of your web passwords, credit card information, and more in an encrypted data vault so that you need only remember one password. (Hence the name.) Without something like 1Password people tend to use the same passwords repeatedly, to employ easy-to-remember but easy-to-hack passwords, or to write passwords down in a log book (or sticky notes) next to the computer. None of these are best practices from a security perspective, and 1Password solves all of that.
Normally 1Password for the Mac is $50. Until November 30, you can get it for $25 either through the Mac App Store or at the developer's web site. The iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch version is also on sale and available through the App Store.
I've been using 1Password for over a year now and find it indispensible. I think you will too.
