Managing your passwords

Managing your passwords

Your online security is very important, more so when your are logging into a service I’ve setup for you!
I understand that remembering different passwords is a nuisance (or impossible), which is why I don’t.

I remember one password, a really good long one, if you’re a client of mine you will be bored by me moaning on about it, so here are two solutions: 1) write them all down meticulously and put that book in a secure safe bolted to your home (preferably fireproof). 2) Use a Password Management System.
Below is a list of the top 5, as rated by various users on various groups, personally I recommend Lastpass.

Worth noting is that most of them are free, often with premium options like mobile apps.

Show Hidden Files on your Mac

Launch the Terminal and enter these commands exactly as shown. The first command activates the ability to see the hidden files:

defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

Now you must relaunch the Finder by killing it, this is how the changes take effect:

killall Finder

If you want to hide hidden files again (those preceded with a .) and go back to the default Mac settings, you can just type the following:

defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE

Again you will need to kill the Finder so that it can relaunch for changes to take effect:

killall Finder

That’s all there is to it!
