StickyPassword Helps Manage Your Passwords at CES

StickyPasswordOne of the great frustrations of modern life is the need to remember a multitude  of passwords and it’s getting worse as hackers get more sophisticated and passwords need to get longer and more complex. The ex-AVG team at StickyPassword have put together a comprehensive cross-platform password management solution. Todd sits down with Thomas to learn more.

StickyPassword Premium is available on most platforms, including Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Amazon devices, and can synchronise between those platforms either via direct wifi or through the Amazon cloud. Security is covered with AES256 encryption and the data file is encrypted before transmission minimising the risk of interception. Where available, i.e. the iPhone, fingerprints can be used to secure the app and data: for everyone else it’s a single master password.

If you want to try it out, there’s a free version that has everything except the sync. For that it’s $19.99 a year.

YubiKey from Yubico Gives You Quick Secure Access to Your Sensitive Information

yubico-logoThe YubiKey from Yubico gives you the ability to login seamlessly and securely with your one-stop secure access key. Yubico is working with the FIDO alliance and U2 tokens to give you web security for your access to a variety of sensitive web materials. The user has a secure user-name and password along with physical USB token, the YubiKey.

The YubiKey can be used with your computers or smartphone. For use in a computer, you can just plugin the USB key into the computer’s USB ports to gain access to your sensitive passwords and usernames. For smartphones, the YubiKey utilizes NFC (Near Field Communications) technology to talk to your smartphone and allow you to surf the web safely. The device offers seamless authentication to your sensitive information online.

The YubiKey is available now on their website Yubico.com and connects with services like LastPass to give you true two factor secure identification and login. It’s available there for $25. The upgraded FIDO enabled version will be coming soon.
