1Password

Ask Adam loves 1Password.

Everybody needs a password manager — whether we like it or not, we all have dozens (and some of us have hundreds) of passwords to keep track of. Without a secure place to write them down, most people do very dangerous things like using the same password again and again, or putting their passwords into a text file, their address book, or a Google doc. In the best case, you’re spending a lot of time looking them up and keeping them up to date. At worst, your password may already be in the hands of those who wish to cause trouble, either for money or just for their amusement.

If you’re not already using a password manager, 1Password is the best choice. It costs $3 per month for an individual or $5 per month for a family, and offers team and business accounts as well. If you’re the DIY sort, 1Password offers a lot of great documentation to help you get started. If you’d prefer to work with an expert, you can make an appointment with Ask Adam to get going.

Everybody needs backup. The easiest way to back up your Mac right now is to sign up with Backblaze. You can begin backing up in seconds, without even sharing your credit card info. I use Backblaze on all my Macs and almost all of my clients do too.

You can get started with Backblaze by clicking the “Get Backblaze” button below. Make sure you use a strong password when you sign up, and make sure you keep that password in a safe place!
