Geek Squeaks (#2015-40) FEATURING — Use Qwertycard To Generate And Keep Track Of Passwords — and MORE GREAT STUFF

December 14, 2015

Use Qwertycard To Generate And Keep Track Of Passwords  – As computer and internet users, where we log into numerous accounts, we are still failing to keep our information safe. From experience of helping others, I find that most people use weak passwords and will use the same password to log into numerous accounts. On top of that, most folks will write down those passwords and keep them near the computer. An easy solution to all of this is what is called a Qwerty Card. I had heard about these cards in the past; and, just recently I came across them again on Tech Crunch. How this works is that the card reflects the QWERTY keyboard and each letter on the keyboard is assigned a unique character. When you purchase a card, you are given a unique base code. To generate a really strong password, you first type your base code, then your own password, then use the Qwerty card to generate the coding for the website name. You can also simplify this process and still maintain a strong password by reducing the number of steps. To learn more on how this works, either visit Tech Crunch or the actual site that sells these cards (click here)…

EncryptOnClick Is Like Hiring Your Own Highly Experienced Data Security Guard – I nearly forgot about EncryptOnClick, until I saw that the developer recently updated it. If you want a simple, easy to use encryption program, this one is definitely a keeper. After you install EncryptOnClick, you can copy the contents of the install directory over to a flashdrive (to make it a portable app). Very nice program, that is FREE (that uses 256-bit AES encryption). You can encrypt individual files or entire directories.

Geek Squeaks (#2015-31) FEATURING — Android 6.0 Marshmallow — and MORE GREAT STUFF

October 12, 2015

Android 6.0 Marshmallow – If you currently have an Android supported device (smartphone or tablet) there is a possibility that you may be entitled (for FREE) to the newest Android OS called Marshmallow. I currently have a Nexus 5 smartphone, which is a Google based phone, and I received the upgrade this week. My Samsung Galaxy Tab S (tablet), I will have to do some research to determine when and if this device will receive the upgrade. You may have to do the same thing. Again, the OS upgrade is called Marshmallow.

Marshmallow

After receiving my upgrade, I had minimal knowledge as to what the new features were. I went on the hunt and found what I was looking for (to educate myself) at the official Android Marshmallow site (at Android.com). There you will find the complete features list by clicking on “All Features” at the bottom of the page. If you are wondering, Google names their operating systems using a confectionery theme. Below is a complete listing:

Cupcake (1.5) – Donut (1.6) – Eclair (2.0–2.1) – Froyo (2.2–2.2.3) – Gingerbread (2.3–2.3.7) – Honeycomb (3.0–3.2.6)[a] – Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0–4.0.4) – Jelly Bean (4.1–4.3.1) – KitKat (4.4–4.4.4, 4.4W–4.4W.2) – Lollipop (5.0–5.1.1) – Marshmallow (6.0)

———————————————————

If You Are A “LastPass” Subscriber You May Want To Read This – LastPass is an online password manager where your passwords are stored in an online encrypted vault. They have been bought out by LogMeIn (a company specializing in remote desktop management). If you visit the LastPass blog you can read more about this announcement and the various comments that indicate that people are not happy with this move. This is another reason why I do not store my passwords online and instead use local software to manage my passwords. If curious of what I use to manage my passwords, CLICK HERE..

.LastPass_&_LogMeIn

———————————————————

How To Hide A File Inside A Picture – I have to give credit to BetaNews for showcasing this little app called Free File Camouflage that is easy to use that gives you the ability to hide files inside a typical jpeg image. What attracts me to this software is that it is small in size (portable); thus, a nice addition to my tech toolbox.

Features:

  • The software can be used with the main interface or via the explorer “send to” context menu (the first time you only need to select a directory with some images).
  • All the files are encrypted using AES and hidden inside an image.
  • What happens if someone tries to open a camouflaged image? Well… nothing! He will only see an image!
  • This software is also useful when you want to send an exe via email. Currently many email providers (or companies proxy) don’t allow this.
  • Recently also GMail has disabled the support for attaching a zip file (even if protected with password) with an exe in a draft message.
  • With Free File Camouflage you can send via email whatever you want!

Anker CD Slot Mount Car Mount Phone Holder – This is a unique method to mount a phone holder in your vehicle that is made by Anker.

Exciting News! S10 Password Vault Now Available On Google Play (as an Android App)

August 12, 2015

You may have noticed on yesterday’s Geek Squeak I posted “A Quick Study On The Anatomy Of A Good Password” that featured the S10 Password Vault. I have tested and tried numerous password managers and in my humble opinion, S10 Password Vault is the best out there. You don’t hear much about it, due the developer himself is very humble.

When I started using S10 and found out how good it was I was hoping that there was an Android version available that I could download to my Android devices (smartphone and tablet). At that time, S10 was not available at the Google Play Store; however, the developer had a downloadable Android version available that required a manual install of an .apk file. I contacted the developer, expressed my gratitude for S10, and encouraged him to get the Android version of the S10 Password Vault onto Google Play Store (where the app would gain more exposure and the install process would be more automated).

Cover art

GREAT NEWS! The developer contacted me today and informed me that S10 is now available on Google Play – CLICK HERE – (and is also available for iPhone/iPad in the App Store). The developer also advised that S10 Password Vault has been upgraded, as well.

I know many people are going with the online password managers; however, my “words of wisdom” is to go with a software version such as S10 where you know your data is much safer and more manageable; and you know for sure where your data is located.

To get you started with S10 Password Vault, visit the main website – CLICK HERE – so that you can see how feature enriched this software is; YET, simplistic.  I have been using it for years and would be totally lost without it. S10 Password Vault can either be installed on your computer or be downloaded as a portable app.

A big THANK YOU to the developer of S10 Password Vault…

Geek Squeaks #2015-11 @ What’s On My PC (Featuring: A Quick Study On The Anatomy Of A Good Password and MORE)

August 11, 2015

A Quick Study On The Anatomy Of A Good Password – I plucked the information below from my work security notices about passwords and thought it would be good to share with my readers. It pretty much sums it up nicely about the creation and the composition of a good password.

Did you know the longer the password, the harder it is to crack? Consider a 12-character password or longer. Things to avoid: Names, places, dictionary words. Mix it up. Use variations on capitalization, spelling, numbers, and punctuation. Most importantly, don’t save passwords or use “remember me” especially on public computers.  Make sure your computer is secure.  Never give your password out to anyone and don’t post your password in plain sight.

From my experience I have found that people that use computers (and other devices) on the personal level (such as at home) use very weak passwords, never change them and are very liberal on who has access to those passwords. To solve this problem, I highly recommend that you use a password manager such as S10 Password Vault that will help you manage, organize, store and generate your passwords.

S10 Password Vault

Have you ever tried going offline for days at a time? I don’t know if I could detach myself from my devices. I am serious, I have never tried it. Found this blog post at the Huffington Post “Why You Need To Go Offline For A Week” where the author explains that “you go completely offline (no internet allowed at all) and off grid (so no phone calls, texts etc.) to have a complete break from technology and communication with anyone you’re not physically with”. I encourage you to read this article to see his end results… I definitely need to go offline, get off the grid and go to hermit land.

Going Offline

Check out this men’s lithium powered mountain bike – This is an example of how battery technology is improving all of the time. This bike (or scooter) is by X-Treme Scooters (Model XB-300Li)… The Lithium Powered Electric Bicycle has a 300-Watt rear brushless hub motor for power operation. The bike has a key start and a variable speed control twist throttle. The bike can be powered exclusively by the motor, can be pedaled and power assisted, or be exclusively pedaled. Mountain bike components that make the bike great for trail and road riding include a seven-speed Shimano Tourney Gears Shifter System, lightweight 100 percent aluminum alloy frame, fully adjustable seat, and a RST Capa T7 hydraulic front fork for maximum shock absorption. The bike is also equipped with strong front and rear brakes, a battery indicator, a headlight, tool kit, and cargo rack.

Tips On Password Creation and Management

May 4, 2015

Finished a refresher training today at my work that featured tips on password creation and management that I thought I would share with you. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to use strong passwords and different passwords for each account that you maintain. I can tell you from personal experience, that nearly every computer I have ever assisted anyone with (home and work), their passwords could be easily compromised.

Today’s Geek Squeaks – September 21, 2013

September 21, 2013

A summary of Today’s Geek Squeaks:

Squeak #1 – (How to get to the Windows 8 event logs): I ran into a situation with my computer where I needed to get to the Windows 8 event logs to perform some troubleshooting. Do you think I could remember how? Guess it is age or I don’t troubleshoot enough. Take a minute to read how to get to this log in Windows 8 and take a look at what the log looks like. You may need it in the future (see below);

Squeak #2 – (A Pill That Turns Your Body Into A Password): A friend of mine put me on this one. You can’t make this stuff up, because this is real. Motorola has revealed a stomach acid-powered pill that will literally will use your body for password authentication. I can see it now in the workplace; “Did you take your password pill this morning? If not, please proceed to HR for a suppository.” (see below);

Squeak #3 – (Remotely Change Your Password On Your Android Device):  Ever lose your android smartphone? Google recently came out with an update to their Android Device Manager that gives you the ability to remotely change the password on your phone or tablet, in the event it is lost or stolen (see below); AND,

Squeak #4 – (128 GB Flash Drive): It amazes me how flash drives are slowly evolving into excellent backup strategy options by the amount of space that is being developed for the drives (see below)…

Use Password Chameleon To Generate A Different Unique Password For Every Site You Use

August 17, 2012

If you are not using some form of software to manage the passwords to your online accounts, then this tells me you are using weak passwords; or you are using the same password for every account; or you are writing down the passwords somewhere. I can go with writing the passwords down, as long as you are using some level of security (like storing them in a locked area), but I will bet you are not doing this. When it comes to computer security and passwords, I have found it is human nature to not take the extra steps to make sure the accounts are protected and have also found that most people really do not understand the importance of it all.

Today, I came across a really unique website that really caught my attention, called Password Chameleon, that is very different than any password manager I ever experienced.  As a matter of fact, it does not get any easier than this.

Password Chameleon

With Password Chameleon you only need to remember one password and the domain name of the account you are accessing.

For example, to access my blog account whatsonmypc.wordpress.com, I enter my secret password (which actually can be easy), then the domain name, which is wordpress.com, then click on “Generate Password”

Password Chameleon

After I click on “Generate Password”, a strong password is then generated.

Password Chameleon

What is cool about Password Chameleon is if I forget the password,  I can go back to the Password Chameleon website, enter my secret password, the domain name, click on “Generate password” to retrieve the same password I created the first time. You can come back anytime to Password Chameleon to get the password. Where the beauty of this lies is that I can retrieve a password for my accounts from any internet enabled computer by simply visiting the Password Chameleon site.

Password Chameleon uses a technique called “hashing” to combine your secret password with the address of the site and produce your password.

  • Passwords are never saved.
  • There is no database of passwords that could be hacked.
  • Passwords are generated on your computer using JavaScript, so nothing is sent over the internet.
  • Password Chameleon uses SHA-1 encryption to generate each password.
  • Passwords are 10 character, 64-bit sequences.
  • Passwords do not contain easily confused characters, such as 0 and O.

I am now using Password Chameleon, in conjunction with my password management software, to generate and keep track of my passwords.

Password Chameleon is a very cool concept that I hope the developers continue to enhance even further. On a further note, you can also download a Password Chameleon app to your windows computer, windows phone, android devices, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer browsers which makes it even easier to manage those passwords.

A Simple Easy-To-Use Password Vault

March 22, 2010

What I have found, as a result of following the software circuit, is that oftentimes software (during its’ lifespan) can end up being over developed and bloated.  As a result, the end user becomes frustrated and drops the software in search for something more understandable and simpler. I have found that to be the case with many of the software applications that serve as password managers.

S10 Password Vault iconRecently, I was looking for an easy-to-use application to store my usernames and passwords and came across S10 Password Vault. Initially I was skeptical, due I had never heard of this application; however, after a test run I knew I was onto something good.

S10 Password Vault is FREE for personal use, can be run as a PORTABLE APP or a FULL INSTALL, is small in windows size, is  not cumbersome, will autotype the usernames and passwords for you, and will generate random passwords if need be. The really “cool factor” to this password vault is that it will work with any program (that requires a username and password) and not just web site accounts. Another thing I found, that I was in search for is, I can use it as a bookmark manager and program launcher, as well (even though it is touted as a password vault). This is especially useful on my flash drive. I commend the author, Sten Herlitz, for developing a really nice (easy-to-use) password vault that is feature enriched and developed with the end user in mind.

A Safe and Secure Sticky Notes Program for your Flash Drive

December 27, 2009

If you are someone that uses a portable flash drive on a regular basis, then you most likely have experienced that feeling when you either forgot to unplug the drive from a foreign computer or that feeling when you have misplaced or lost the drive.  If this has not happened to you, believe me it will.  I am a heavy duty flash drive user and I have experienced both, even though I go to great lengths to monitor the whereabouts of my flash drive.  As a result of my carelessness, I have learned to use layers of protection to prevent access to the data on the drive in the event the drive falls into the wrong hands.

In conjunction with using encryption software on my flash drive (such as the FREE version of SafeHouse), I will also use programs on the drive that offer password protection and additional encryption.  For example, the sticky notes program that I carry on my flash drive is a FREE program called PNotes that not only can be password protected; it can also be configured to automatically encrypt your notes.

image

This little gem of a program contains a boat load of features that continues to get better and better.  PNotes can also be installed and run from your computer as well.

PNotes Features:

  • Ease of use – no installation, just unpack the downloaded archive to any location and run PNotes.exe.
  • Fully adjustable – you set the default fonts, colors and dimensions of notes.
  • Individual note adjusting – every note can have its own settings, like fonts, colors etc.
  • Rich text formatting – any portion of note’s text can be formatted separately.
  • Password protection – prevents unauthorized access to program.
  • Encryption – allows you to store notes as encrypted files, so even in case of loosing your USB stick nobody could read them.
  • Backing up – the notes could be backed up before saving – with any reasonable levels of copies – and quickly restored at any moment.
  • Transparency – opacity level for notes may vary from completely opaque to absolutely transparent.
  • Skins – there is a variety of skins for PNotes (some of them are just works of art) and, moreover, you can create your own if download PNSkinCreator – a small utility for creation PNotes skins.
  • Docking – you may dock notes to any side of screen (all together or each one separately) and get as a result a kind of panel.
  • Scheduling – it is possible to schedule each note to remind you about significant events by many different ways. Using this feature you may just hide notes and don’t worry, you’ll be notified in time.
  • Overdue reminders – have you set a number of reminders and turned your computer off or taken the program in whole to another computer? Never mind, next time the program will start it will check it’s settings and inform you about any overdue reminder.
  • Favorites – add frequently used notes to favorites for easy and fast access.
  • Searching – you may perform the quick search in notes either by their contents, or by their titles.
  • E-mailing – contents of each note or number of notes as attachment may be sent by e-mail.
  • Control Panel – this is your central command post. All management is put into effect here.
  • Grouping – notes can be separated into different groups for easy management. You may freely create, modify or delete groups and change every note’s belonging by single click or just drag_and_drop.
  • Internationalization – PNotes is fully Unicode supported and translated into many languages.
  • Portability – PNotes leaves no traces in Windows registry and can be started from any drive (fixed or flash) on any computer. Take your notes with you to any location.
  • Other features – of course there are many other unmentioned features in program, but I suggest you to discover them by yourself, these are delights of any new program, aren’t they?
