Not exactly about books, but important for indie authors and almost everyone else, particularly if they’re paid online.
From The Wall Street Journal:
When it comes to remembering all your passwords, you’ve got three choices:
1) Have a memory like Dustin Hoffman’s character in “Rain Man.”
2) Make the multistep “Forgot Password?” reset process a part of your everyday life.
3) Use a password manager that remembers all your login details—and can even automatically log you in.
What’s never a choice? Using the same password across all of your online accounts. To stay safe, every single account needs a unique password that’s hard to crack.
A password manager works the way you’d expect: You set up an account through a desktop or mobile app and input your various usernames and passwords. Then they are securely stored in a digital vault of sorts. When you need them, you can go copy them, or use a browser plug-in to autofill them when you’re on websites. The only password you need to remember? The one that opens the password manager.
These apps aren’t new, but with more frequent security breaches there’s never been a better time to set one up.

PG has used LastPass forever and has always been satisfied. When he buys a new PC, one of the first things he does is to install LastPass so he has access to all his passwords, including those for the various software programs/online services he uses everyday.
