It’s the 21st century and every day is SOME or SOMEONE’s day, because why not.

And today is not just any day – it’s WORLD PASSWORD DAY!

Passwords are important, we don’t need to state the obvious. Everyone deserves some privacy and passwords make than happen. A secure combination can make sure you don’t get your photos, videos and documents or worse – your whole online identity stolen by somebody else.
