Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your e-mail account, your website’s FTP password, online passwords (like website member account), etc. etc. etc. The list is endless. Also, you should use different passwords for each account. Because if you use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password you have a problem… A serious problem. The thief would have access to your e-mail account, website, etc. But how to remember all those passwords? KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish). There are many versions for all kinds of phones and other devices to keep your data safe and even to take them with you.

VeraCrypt makes it possible to secure your files. VeraCrypt is the continuation of TrueCrypt, whose development in 2014 was unexpectedly stopped by the developers, because it would not be 100% safe. The warning came as an unpleasant surprise without further explanation. On the basis of TrueCrypt, a group further developed, tested and extensively tested the code and declared it safe. Users of TrueCrypt can immediately get started with VeraCrypt. You can use it to create a virtual encrypted disk (VeraCrypt calls it a container) as a regular file on your hard drive, and “mount” as a real disk. It is possible to encrypt an entire hard disk partition or a part of it, but it can also be external device like a USB stick. In this container you can store data that you do not want to become public if you lose the stick. VeraCrypt also has a mode called Traveller. This allows to launch the VeraCrypt software on the stick automatically when it is connected to the drive of any computer. You can easily mount your password-protected disk and access your secured files.
