Passwords (and security questions) are the key to accessing all of your sensitive data, so having a way to keep them secret, making them secure, and yet being able to find and use them when you need to is more critical than ever.

There are many password management tools available to help manage your password effectively. Our favorite, LastPass, now even includes multiple platform compatibility for free (you can use their website, and an app on your phone).

Here is a review of some of the best managers out there, and PCMagazines editors choices.

Think you have a great password? Here's a site where you can see how long it will take to crack it.

ZipGrade is a useful app for teachers. Julia Belej gives a brief description on how this app works: "Students take a multiple choice test and fill in the corresponding answers on the bubble sheet. To grade, a teacher can download the Zipgrade app and scan the bubble sheet. The app automatically corrects the sheet and gives you a score! You get 100 free scans per month (after it costs $6.99 for one year), and there are a variety of bubble sheets (20, 50, or 100 questions)."
