99% of the time, when your bank calls you, it’s to sell you more services.  If there’s a problem with your account, they’ll simply lock the account and wait for you to call.

They will also never ask you for your PIN, no matter what the reason.

It’s usually outsourced and standardized (just seeing the word “Brassring” triggers some mild PTSD in me). After hundreds of applications over the years, I’ve just taken to building a version of my resume that’s text-ready for pasting. I’ve never had an application crash on me, they usually auto-save at every page Read more

I don’t know why they don’t list tinder, but aside from Grindr they list 3 other dating apps. I don’t think this is necessarily a homophobic thing.
I can’t imagine why they don’t list tinder unless its just that they assume everyone knows that it is, especially since they mention it in the descriptions of other apps.

Like Snapchat? I get that this is not 2014, but I would bet as many people have heard of Snapchat as Tinder. Or at least close.

I wonder if the list was to help parents recognize apps that they might not necessarily recognize. So in your example, a parent might  know what Tinder is, but not know that Bumble (and Grindr and Skout and Badoo) are very similar apps.

Any time I reinstall windows for myself or a relative, first thing I do is come to lifehack and look for these pack/ninite links.

I primarily use Debian so this package manager has a familiar interface - Thanks for making me aware of this!

Yes KeePass is the best. You can do it all for free. Keeping the database in your cloud storage account is the best. I love having a database that is always up to date no matter what device I’m using.

Yup! Been using this combo for a while now. Was considering Enpass or BitWarden to see if it cleans up the interfaces any. Being able to keep everything in my personal cloud (Synology NAS) makes me feel that much more secure.

Another vote for Keepass. Being able to use it offline, off a thumb drive, my android phone, windows computer, and a linux box, is great.

KeePass, and the Android app Keepass2Android. By using them and Dropbox to hold the password vault/file, I can effectively imitate paid subscription-level services from other providers. Multiple users, multiple devices, cross-platform, etc. Read more

I believe that this is the article that used to be called the Hive Five call for contenders. The actual Hive Five comes later...

Plus one for keepass.  The only way is offline.

I prefer KeePass, for the non-cloud-based nature of it. I don’t feel at all threatened/nervous about a potential security breach because there is no centralized repository where my passwords are, merely my local database file. Now, I do (for convenience’s sake) keep that on my Google Drive so I can sync it across Read more
