I received my pack of 4 about 2 weeks ago now and I love it. I put 1 on my car keys, 1 inside my wallet, I gave 1 away and I have 1 more spare that i’m still deciding on what to attach it to.

I have read reviews about other tracking devices and the Trackr Bravo stood out above the others. I would encourage you to go and have a look at the Trackr Website and see for yourself why I made the choice to purchase the Trackr Bravo.

Another nice thing about getting yours using the link above, you will be entitled to an extra Trackr, completely free.

Above is a picture of one of my Trackrs attached to my keys.

How it Works

Tired of losing your keys, wallet, or phone? Attach the coin-sized TrackR bravo to any item – then use the TrackR app to locate it in seconds. Quickly ring a missing item around the home or be notified before leaving things behind.

Lost your phone? Press the button on your TrackR device to ring your missing phone, Even on Silent Mode!

TrackR’s Crowd GPS Network even updates you of your item’s latest location on a map! Watch the video below to learn more!

Listed below are a few of its features

Distance Indicator

Hotter? Colder? The TrackR app displays the distance between you and your items – letting you know how far those pesky keys are

Item Ringer

With the quick tap of your finger, TrackR can ring your misplaced keys – no more hiding under the mail! Finding keys has never been easier.

Phone Finder

Can’t find your phone? Press your TrackR device’s button to ring your phone, even if it’s on silent! We make finding your phone too easy.

Crowd GPS

Lost something? TrackR’s item tracking network will help you find it. When a TrackR user is within range of your lost item, you receive a GPS update.

Separation Alerts

Forgot your phone again? Custom 2-way separation alert notifies you before you leave items behind!

Wallet Thin Design

TrackR bravo uses beautiful anodized aluminum construction for the thinnest and most durable tracking device.

TrackR has an app for both iPhone and your Android smartphone. The beautiful application allows you to easily track your lost items so you can always stay connected with your most beloved things.

To wrap up and put it simply – I love it.  Check it out

Facebook Account Hacks

In this last few months I have noticed a few of my friends mention that their Facebook account have been hacked. Unfortunately this isn’t anything new and it won’t stop anytime soon, unless YOU actually do something about it and change a few habits to make it harder for the guys wearing the black hats (the unethical hackers) to gain access to your information and online accounts.


FreedomPop – The brand new FREE UK mobile service

Of course, you know what the first thing is I’m going to tell you……

Change your password to a really good one and don’t use it anywhere else.  However, i have something else to suggest you do first, and I will come back to this point.

I’m sure you have been told never to use the same password on more that one website.  To be honest though, who can remember all those different passwords and how do you come up with a really strong, also called “High Entropy“, password anyway? The answer is pretty simple actually.  The trick is not to try and think of one yourself and then try to remember it yourself, nor should you be writing them down, and PLEASE, I beg of you, never save them in a text document called passwords, or anything else for that matter.

I generated the above 100 character, extremely strong password, in less than 10 seconds. I’ve been using LastPass to LastPass Download Linkhelp me manage my passwords so that I have a different, very strong, password for every site and multiple accounts on a site. It makes browsing easier and more secure and it’s really simple to use!  You can get it at https://lastpass.com/f?4350906 .  LastPass is an Password Manager that you use to generate, and securely store all your passwords in one place, secured by a single Master Password. This master password is the only one you will have to remember. The only catch is…… Well, not a catch really.  You know that I mentioned you have to change a few habits….   make sure you have never used this master password anywhere else on the internet with the email address associated with LastPass, otherwise, you will still be at risk.

Continue reading below this video introducing you to LastPass…

LastPass makes things really easy for you.  But if you have any questions about how to get stuff done, feel free to comment on this post and I will help you out.  You can, if you prefer, have a look at their tutorial videos and Frequently Asked Questions section or help pages.

Now, let me give you another site where you can go and generate a really good password. Go have a look at Steve Gibson ‘s Ultra High Entropy Pseudo-Random Number Generator.  You remember that long password at the beginning of this post? copy and paste that into Steve’s site and see how long it would take for a hacker to brute force.

Coming back to Facebook.

I would recommend you change your Facebook password and any other website that uses the same password. What the Black Hats do is when they manage to get into one of your accounts, they will then first try banks and other important websites to try and match emails and passwords. Then they will go to other social media sites and try and get in to them. After that, they might also create fake accounts to pose as you and ask your friends to add you. They then send out a personalized message to your friends and have a link in the message to a site with embedded malicious software. Basically, by allowing a Black Hat into your life, you have just made it so much easier for them to hack your friends with a new fishing attack.

If you have read everything up to here, I congratulate you for it and want to say thank you as well.  Now don’t forget to take action.

  1.  Get Lastpass and keep your unique Master Password safe.
  2.  Start changing your passwords and let LastPass remember them for you
  3.  Please subscribe to this blog for the next steps to keeping your personal details, personal.

Thanks again for reading my blog

Stay safe

Bernie
