1Password for Android
Create, use and edit secure passwords with 1Password for Android

The number of web sites and applications that require users to log in with a username or email address and password is staggering. For maximum security you should try to have a unique, hard-to-remember password for each login you use, so if one gets compromised, the rest remain safe.

Doing this by hand is almost impossible, which is where a password-management service like 1Password comes into play. This lets you store all your passwords securely in a vault that’s unlocked by a single master password (this is the one you need to remember), then auto-fills them into websites as and when required. It’ll even generate secure passwords for you.

The service originated on PC and Mac, extended to mobile and – until recently – was limited to a read-only app on Android. That meant you could access your previously stored passwords through the app, but not add to them or edit existing info.

From version 4, however, the app has been rebuilt from the ground up to be fully functional, so you can update your passwords from your Android device, then sync them back to your computer or Apple mobile or tablet if you wish. Or, of course, you can use the app completely standalone.

Unfortunately this comes at a cost – the free version of the app is the old, read-only version, but a one-off, in-app purchase unlocks the rest of the functionality.

What's new in 6.5.4 (see changelog for more)?

- Added Canary Islands to the countries list. {OPA-1178}
- Updated localizations from our fantastic translators on Crowdin.

Verdict:

Now that 1Password has implemented all of its functionality into the Android app, it could become a compelling alternative - depending on its price - to rival services like Lastpass.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
