The dangers of using a laptop to browse the internet while in wifi hotspots, including popular cafes, has been in the headlines. Watchdog showed how easy it is for hackers to share our information while we’re online as the wifi works as a network they can access. People are looking for ways to keep their wifi communication secure, so a site like Geid could prove popular.

Geid has a system called SecureConnect which encrypts and keeps data secure while you’re using wifi, and at the moment the site is offering a free trial period, so it’s worth taking advantage of this protection. The site also has a blog with information about keeping your computer and communications secure. It’s a new site which has started up just as wifi security is a hot topic, and with users worried about whether and how to use the internet while in public places the products and the information available at Geid should be useful.

Mitto – Keep Your Passwords in One Place

Mitto is a secure password management site which lets you store all your website passwords together. We all have times when we forget the passwords we use for the many websites we access, and the temptation is to have an easy-to-remember password and keep it the same for all websites. This is not a secure option, but not being able to gain access to websites is frustrating, as is the need to keep setting new passwords when we forget. So sites like Mitto are popular and useful.

This is a free service, and easy to use. It works anywhere and isn’t limited to the user’s main computer. To set up automatic logins via Mitto, the user goes to the Add Sites option to include their main websites in a list, and once the passwords are included these can be accessed by a single click. The Mitto website assures security, with the methods used explained in detail, and points out that by using it to access other sites there’s less chance of falling victim to Phishing. Mitto also keeps a track of logins so users can check to see when they last used websites. This would also help them notice if anyone else is using their account, so this technique could be a help against identity fraud.
