The ability to remember user names and passwords, and even fill out online forms, is not new. In fact, it has been built into web browsers for sometime now. However, thanks to notoriously bad implementation by Firefox, which makes all of the data easy to view via the Settings, and people tending to use the same passwords over and over on multiple sites, many have become easy targets for hackers.

One easy and free way of solving this issue is to use a password management tool and there are several fine ones on the market, although not all of them are actually free. My favorite, and one that has been recommended by several security experts, is called LastPass.

There is also a “Premium” version of the software available which costs $1 per month. This allows customers to use the program on mobile devices — and it works with pretty much EVERY mobile operating system and browser that you could possibly think of, from mainstream to obscure to dead ones like Windows Mobile. It is also ad-free.

Taking advantage of the rise of portable devices, an ever-growing number of viruses designed to affect them are being found. By default, whenever you plug in a storage device in your computer, Windows automatically enables a auto-play function, which runs the a file called “autorun.ini”. Such malware uses “autorun.ini” as a vector of transmission and, through that auto-play, infect your computer.

Most paid antivirus suites scan USB devices for viruses as they are plugged into the computer, which does not happen with most free ones. If your antivirus does not provide such feature, USB Immunizer, developed by BitDefender Labs, might be the perfect solution to improve your security, as it automatically disables the auto-play function and injects a vaccine into your device, leaving it perfectly immunized against such infections.
