This blogger mentions SplashID Safe as a tool to use in the fight to protect your online identity. Old so-called "Zombie Accounts" are one risk to keep in mind. You need to be vigilant in order to track all the user accounts you create online and make sure they don't come back to haunt you.

Along with doing your taxes, there are other things you should probably be doing around the house this time of year to keep your home in top condition. You may not even be aware of some maintenance tasks you should be doing. And if you want to have a nice garden this year, early spring is calling your name. To help you stay on top of all these seasonal tasks, we created Homeowner Calendar. It's name speaks for itself, and it's only 99 cents on the iOS App Store.

For important passwords like bank logins and email accounts, it's a good idea to change them periodically. Ideally you would change them every 3 months, but that can be inconvenient, so January is a good time to browse through your SplashID Safe database and pick out a few high security records to edit.
We've talked about it before, but here a some pointers on making good passwords:
- use a combination of letters and numbers and at least one uppercase character
- use different passwords for different sites
- stay away from the easily guessed passwords like Jen123
- since you're using SplashID already, try to use the password generator to get truly random passwords

To do this, you can create an extra user in SplashID > User menu > Edit Users.
The User name has to be in email format but does not have to be a valid email address. You could use firstname.lastname@example.org.
Then you can put any record under this user that you do not want synced over to your device(s).
