If you’re not using a password manager, you really should be. While it might seem daunting to stop relying on iCloud Keychain or a web browser like Safari, it’s really easy to step up your online security with a password manager like Dashlane, the official password manager of Cult of Mac.
In fact, it’s incredibly simple to import all your passwords into Dashlane. It’s the first step toward taking true control of your passwords — and in today’s video, I’m going to show you how.

One of the amazing benefits of selling software on the internet is that you can reach customers from all over the world. So why would you cut out a huge potential market just by assuming everyone who wants to use your product speaks English?
In fact, ignoring other markets can be one of the biggest marketing oversights software companies make.
Doing anything online means remembering a slew of passwords. That’s why we’re strong advocates of using a password manager like Dashlane. But why use a password manager when your web browser offers to keep track of passwords for you?
The short answer is that, in today’s age of security and privacy concerns, password management is about a lot more than convenience.

Your iPhone carries a lot of information, but it’s not a locked box. Eventually, for one reason or another, you’ll go to find a text thread or photo that you’re sure you kept, except you didn’t. Well, with the right tool, almost any data that was lost can be found again.
If there’s one thing photo libraries do, it’s grow. And as they increase in size, they also become harder to organize. Duplicates creep in, folders get mixed up, and the size can easily get out of control. But a Mac app called PowerPhotos offers new moves for managing your digital photo library.
iTunes was groundbreaking when it launched in 2002. But since then, it’s evolved very little, especially in terms of managing iOS data. Updating your iPhone means mastering a maze of syncing options and data categories. iTunes is also the very definition of a walled garden, limited to moving content around that already lives on it — you can’t just pull music straight from your folders onto your phone.
MacBooks are workhorse machines, but they’re also luxury items. The consideration that goes into their design and form is just as much a reason for owning one as their performance. So when you get a case — and you should definitely get a case — you should be aware that some are better fit for the MacBook look and feel than others.
With all of the news about data insecurity at Facebook, you might be thinking twice about using the social network to log in to other apps. Sure, using the Facebook Login feature makes it simple to create an account or log in to apps and websites.
Unfortunately, it also adds to the data dossier Facebook is compiling about you and your friends.

As indie developers, we can get too caught up in how things work — what features our product has, what users can do with it. It often seems like if we can just explain how our product works, everyone will become a devoted user.
We spend lots of time pulling together onboarding videos and tutorials. But there’s a whole other front in the battle of promotion and conversion: making an emotional connection between a potential user and your product and brand.
If there’s one thing you would like to spend less time dealing with online, what would it be? Filling out the same name, address or credit card info for the hundredth time? Maybe remembering and entering each of your dozens of (hopefully strong) passwords?
