6 Tiny But Very Useful Web Apps

The guy behind Digital Inspiration has also built up quite a few tech projects that could come handy when needed. Here are 6 of them that I like and booked.

1. Secure Passwords

A simple tool to generate secure strong password using bcrypt algorithm that can be unique for every site. You just need to remember a single passphrase and the tool will create the different passwords for you. The author also published the code to Github so you can download and run on a USB key or even Dropbox folder to run it in off line mode.

2. Encrypt/Decrypt Messages

This online tool uses the AES algorithm to encrypt and decrypt your plain text. You can use this to communicate with others without having to worry about the sensitive information being sniffed by the bad guys. You simply enter your message in plain text, select a strong password and click the Encrypt button.
