1. Bitmoji - the best free app to create your own personal emoji: all right, guys. So I want also talk to you about big Emoji. If you haven't heard a bit emoji, I love it. It's just so much fun. And it's such a great application. It's really intuitive, releasing to use really user friendly, and it's just a lot of fun. You got to give it a go if you haven't tried this, and if you haven't heard of it, you should know that it's huge. It's already has psycho or 50 million users worldwide, and it grew over 3000% between last year and the year before. So it's growing really, really quickly, and more and more people are starting to use but emoji. And when you start to use it, you'll find out really, why so many people love it, and it's just because it allows you to create your own personal emoji, and it's kind of your own avatar. But the really cool thing about it is that they every day they come up with new things, new expressions, and it's just using kind of your big motion. You know, your personal emoji and it gives it gives it that personal touch off, you being actually the character and wearing different customs, saying different things, different expressions. So we all know that Emojis are really popular and we all love emojis. I use them all the time when I'm chatting with people and that one of the reasons why we love them is because they're expressive and we don't have to type right. So humanity have these natural tendency to go with things that are, you know, really simple that I guess that imply less work. So when you type, you have to kind of, like actually take longer actions. And we just put like a smiley face instead of saying, Yeah, I really like that sounds really good. You know, you have to type all of those words and have to think about all of those words. But if you just send an emoji and it's a smiley face, it says it all right. So it's That's why Emojis are so popular. And then the recent white big emoji, so popular is because it's kind of like an emoji, but an emoji off yourself and I'll show you in a moment a couple of examples from the big emoji I created for myself and I'll show you a video as well, so we can learn a little bit more about being moody. Let's start with the video first. - All right, so there you have it. That's been emoji. And like I said, you'll just love it. You you have to give it a go to just truly enjoy how much fun it is, and you can use it. You know, the really cool thing is that you can use it when you're chatting with someone where you're using WhatsApp or whether you're using, you know, telegram or whether you're just sending an SMS to someone you can attach your big emoji or just send your big emoji in that message and you can even send it by email. It allows you to share share it pretty much anywhere. And I love it. You know, I've had so much fun with it lately, and I have had so many laughs because they bring out new characters all the time. So they haven't, you know, a couple of on the use movies, you know, they use characters from movies, so they have even to go on from there, one I really like about the game of Thrones. So have you, you know you're into game of Thrones. They created, like your own character just dressed up with, you know, like Jon Snow and stuff like that. And Superman, Batman, anything you can think off, like you know, like what you're seeing here on screen. Just somebody saying Cheers, Yes, left out loud. So instead of you typing and you can just use your big multi, it'll save you a lot of time and you'll have a lot of fun. And people just really have a lot with that or they'll just enjoy. Just give it a go so you can download your big emoji application in your mobile device. If you go to the APP store or to the group play store, you'll be able to download it. And then once, once you set it up, it'll just start guide you through the process of actually creating your personal emoji. And don't worry about it's really simple releasing to use. And once you go through the process after setting it up, you won't have to do it again. You do it once, and then it will just automatically create all of those fun characters for you with different expressions, different costumes, different moods. And I'll show you an example right now from mind. The one I create for myself and the one I'm using all the time. Give me a sec. All right. So I'm bringing it from my other screens. You can see it and let me let me expand that cause bigger. And this is me. This is just basically my big emoji. Unless you're seeing there, it's just a couple of expressions I chose. There's like, literally, like so many. You never get bored with it. You never get tired because they're bringing me new ones every time, all the time. And they're just a little fun eso you got? You have this one like I got this or you phone with this or hello? You there And there's a little expressions like that out there. Very common expressions that you would use in conversations when you're chatting with someone and there's a lot of them that also don't have any texts which are just fun expressions like the ones that are here. So, the other day, somebody sent me a message in or are you okay with this? And instead of saying, Yeah, I think that's a good idea. That's fine. I just sending this little guy over here, you know, this bit motor here and they got the message. So it just saves me a lot of time because you don't have to actually type, and at the same time, it's just a lot of fun. It's really cool. So give it a bit emoji ago. Like I said, it's just growing exponentially. They now have over 50 million users across all over the world, and it's really curious. About a couple of days ago I had this friend of mine who I had never talked about. We've never talked about bit Mo Ji, and, you know, she just sent me of emoji with a glass of wine, and it was kind of like a toast, and I thought it was hilarious. We just it just looked. It looked just like hair. So I loved it and she, you know, talk to her, and she told me she's using it this all the time as well. So give Emoji ago. You can go to their website like I showed you a moment ago. Big emoji dot com, and you can find more information And of course, you can also go to YouTube and find more videos about emoji. And you can also find the application directly in the APP store and Google. Play downloaded, create your bidmotion. Start having fun. Cheers, guys. 2. Duolingo - the best free app to learn a new language: Hi, everyone. This is jewel lingo. It's an application you can use to learn any language. Will almost any language in the world at least the most popular ones? If you want to learn Spanish, French, German, Italian, English, whatever it is that you want to learn, at least from like I said before the main languages, you can go to jewel lingo dot com, and you can then download their application. You can also find application there, Ricky from your mobile device if you go to the APP store or to the place toward in Android devices. I've used this application myself many times. I recommended to my students all the time as well, and I've just seen a lot of people learn a new language through Dueling Go. And that's why I want to recommend it to you today. And best of all, it's free. It's really easy to you and to use, and it's really fun. If you look at what they have here on screen, you know, you release and speak. They have, you know, grading. There they have your count. Hearts has a lot of fun things in the application. If you downloaded and start using it, you'll see a little bit more what I mean. It's really easy to use. It's really user friendly, and it's a really good way to get started with a new language if you're wanting, if you've ever wanted to learn your language and you just never giving yourself the opportunity. For example, if you're in English, be care. Listening to thes video right now and have always wanted to learn Spanish, this would be a good weight on a fun way to get started, and you don't have to study a lot. You know, you can do it like five minute today or just a few minutes here and there every week and at your own pace on advice. It's free. And let's just watch a short video about jewel lingo. These video that I'm going to show you is a testimonial, and it's a little bit focused on school kids and kids. But don't let that bother you too much. I just want to show you a bit about the experience and about the help people are using it, but I have seen people, you know adult use it, and anyone can use it on the other thing you need to think about when learning any language is that our natural process is to start off like a kid like a kid would. And by that I mean that if you think off your learning process when you were a baby and how you grew, you didn't start to read and write. You know, you started off learning to speak, learning to talk. That was one of the first things you did. You did, and you crawled before you walked. And he walked before you ran, right? So you got to do the same thing when you're learning in your language and Julian go takes you through the process. When you download the application and your register for free, they will create a profile, and they'll basically put you in beginner, intermediate or advanced and based on your level, their personalized experience and then allow you to learn the new language through their application. So let's watch this video about Jewell. Ingo. Everything was so in pieces. So just like the way I learned French growing up like I learned in pieces and if you missed something too bad, you just kind of kept going. That was the teacher focused method of learning, not really very much dialogue or cooperative education going on. The whole philosophy has changed to make or allow for students to have more responsibility for their own subject development. I couldn't imagine someone trying to learn a language without experiencing dueling Go because it is. It is like nothing else. I have the entire school using, doing go. I have seen great ones working at grades above their level. I have seen great aides who never wanted to do French and take to lingo in their hands and become the most focus students I have ever seen. Textbooks like looking at the boy like Felicity. It's not that flood, but we're actually doing something. Now that I realize the potential for learning in this way, I absolutely would not go back to text book learning. Absolutely not. All right, so I hope you enjoyed that video on. Like I said before, if you wanna learn a new language and you're being thinking about it for a while, 18 your to do list in your bucket list and you've never actually started Jewell linguist, a really good way to get started. So I hope you enjoy it and really look forward to you speaking your language. Cheers 3. Flipboard - the best free app to create your own magazines and curate content: Hey, guys, please allow me to introduce you to a flipboard if you haven't heard about Big Board before , I just had to flipboard dot com so you can see what I have on my screen. And it's basically an application that allows you to create magazines or follow magazines in your mobile app or on the Web. And it's awesome because it just curates content from all over the world across different topics, different industries and from different sources, and it just puts everything together in a single place for you. Very easy to replace that functions, kind of like a virtual magazine. So if you're anything like me, you might recall, when you've been to the doctor and they, you know, they had these stack of magazines there for you to read and you would just start reading them. And you enjoy the process because it was fun. You know well, while you were waiting and we just wanted to kill off some time, especially many years ago when you didn't have a mobile device, that's what you would do. You know, we just pick up a magazine and spend some time reading. And even today, even though you have your mobile device. A lot of people seal go through magazines as their, you know, killing time. Or they just want toe read a little bit and have you know something in their hands? Well, there. It's just a different experience, of course, and then having your mobile and flipboard gives you the opportunity to kind of combined those experiences. And personally, I love it. You know, I use it all the time to read things, to read about technology, to read about news, and I really enjoy it. But I guess better than me talking to you about it is you actually seen it our life right now. So let's go to this video that will explain really quickly what labour is and how you can use it. And I'll show you another example in a moment. My example, Fleet board and how I use it. - So I hope you enjoyed that video. And one of the curious things I found about Flipboard is that even though it's huge because it's literally huge, it's being used by millions of people all over the world. I still find that a lot of people are not even aware of its existence. They don't even know it's there. They've never heard of it. They never used it on and they should. And you should, too. It's just really good. It's just like I said, having your own digital magazine or browsing through those off others. And there's, you know, all sorts of companies that have created their magazines there, or new sources newspapers from all over the world. And I'll show you my personal example. So let's go to If you go to your brows here and you go to mauricio. Rubio dot com would have exercise summary CIA rubio dot com You just hit Enter, and that will basically redirect you to my FLIPBOARD. And I've said that up in my you know, domain management company because I wanted to redirect them. Everybody here and I don't have a lot of followers or anything like that because, like I said, I'm not like actively promoting this all the time, and a lot of people are not even aware of its existence or don't use it like I do, but I love it, you know. I've added over six seconds here. Over 1000 articles have created over 20 magazines off different things, different topics that I kind of kind of allows me to organize my thoughts or really interesting things because I'm you know, it's a techie. I'm looking, looking at things and exploring new technologies and reading about things all the time. On I do that as well as an entrepreneur. I'm looking at new applications, new technologies that are out there, new products, and sometimes it gets overwhelming because there's so many things coming out every day, and it's difficult to organize them. So I found that my flea board, it's a really good way for me to organize that. I look at that information later on and you're what you're seeing. Here are my magazines, and these are magazines I've created. So you basically create kind of like your own magazine. You choose, you know your title. You can even put like us up title and a description of what it's about. And then you can just You can just start sleeping things into it, kind of like adding things into it so you can start adding, you know, already calls videos from YouTube. Whatever you want from the Web, you can basically put it in your flipboard. So, for example, if you looked at my magazines, you could see here tools that I recommend or things that I've found useful. You know, you can find out here information about my startups articles where I've been mentioned, or people that have interviewed me information of what's new things that are coming up. I just put them there, thinks about education, innovation. All of these magazines that you're seeing here are not like they don't come via flee Borden itself. I just created them and I just started adding content there, and it doesn't need to even be content directly from FLIPBOARD. It could be content from a website, something that you saw online on. You browsed and you thought it was really interesting. You can add it to your magazine and you can shared with the world. Like, for example, these ones that I have here are public. Um, I do have a couple of other ones private that I keep for myself. And of course I'm not going to show you that right now, but you get the idea you get the picture is just a really good product like you saw in the video. Give you to go, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it. 4. CamScanner - the best free app to scan documents: cam scanner is another really powerful app that I use all the time for standing documents for scanning and sharing. You can download it to your moral application. Just go to the APP store or to the Android play store and search camp scanner, and you'll be able to download the APP for free. And you can also use it the up for free. The only caveat it has is that when you scan a document, if you're on the free version, he will put kind of like a trademark a to bottom of the file, they would just say, scanned by scanned by camp scanner. I've never really had issues with that. I used a free version all the time, and it can documents all the time with Cam scanner, and I always leave that at the bottom. You know, scan with Camp scanner and I send the documents to whoever I need to send them to. And I've never had anyone asked me like, Why does it say, scanned by camp scanner at the bottom? I think people are fine with that, and like I said, you can still use the free version. Unless, of course, you feel you don't want to have that scan bite camp scanner at the bottom, and you want to take that out of your documents. Then, by all means, please purchase the paid versions. Camp Camp Scanner I've been using this application for years as well, and it's just really into it really easy to use. Things I love about this application is that you can scan multiple documents in kind of like what it's called batch mode. Within the application, You can also sink your files to the cloud. It does have a limit, but I've never gone over the limit on the free version, either. You can create your your free online account to manage your documents and sink them. They're like you would, you know, with Dropbox or Google Drive, but directly with Camp scanner, the other radical functionality I used all the time. He's emailed to yourself, and it's just a scan, a document, and there's a bottom there that the application has, which is called email to yourself. You press that button and it will attach automatically the PF what Whatever document is can and it will send it to yourself through your email in your mobile device. So you're basically using and turning your mobile device into a scanner, and you don't have to use you know, the traditional scanner that you have to plugging into your computer or laptop, and it's really curious. But I still see a lot of people, especially at the office and across many offices, in different businesses that I visit or or that I go to. I still see a lot of people scanning document the old way. You know, they have this huge thing, this huge printer, which also scans document, and they go there and it takes them a while to you, said they're trying to use it. I don't know, really what's the best way to use it. And even if they do, it still takes him a while to kind of documents. So these application solves all of that. You know, you just use your mobile device, you just take a picture. But it's designed and specially created to scan documents so it will be, and it will look a lot better than if you just took a picture of the document with your mobile device incented, you will actually you actually feel on. You'll actually get the, you know the result as if you had actually can it in a scanner. But you use this application via your mobile device, and it's a lot faster, you know, because we have our mobile devices with us all the time, where they're turned on all the time. We're used to, you know, just the screen of the mobile device touching a button on it to do something. And so it's It's definitely I recommended application, and you can use it on your trips. If you're you need this kind, for example, for business. If you need to scan receives off purchases, you've made off dinners and stuff. You just scandal. What scandal? Take your second. It will streamline the process of your going back to finance and putting all your bills and receipts through the system. So all I know it's really a good application, and I recommend you use it. Whenever you need to scan something, just leave it there in your mobile device, download the APP and just open it up. Scan it and you know it gives you the option off cropping off editing, and it's really just very intuitive, very easy to use and you can go to camp scanner dot com and you can read more about it and information about the product. And as you're seeing this on your screen, I know what you're thinking. That website looks really hold on. It doesn't look really good and I agree with you. I don't like their website at all. I think their website is really, really bad. It needs to be improved. It looks like a website from the nineties. But beyond that, forget that and set that aside for a second. And think about the application per se and the application is just awesome. I love it. I use it all the time. It's really good. And let's just watch a short video so you get a feel for the application of what it does. Okay, so let's go here to YouTube again. There's lots of videos on camp scanner, and you can go there and search for it. These one waas, the one that I found which was particularly good in religion, summarizes the essence off camp scanner in a good way. So let's watch it together. Ham scanner.

Once camp scanner is installed onto your smartphone. Any document or photo you see in the real world can be digitised using your phone's camera . Just take a picture of whatever you want. Scan.

That's pretty much the end of the video. And, like I was saying, it's great application. If you need to scan a document, sometimes you need to you know you're doing on Erin that the government's office or somebody asks you for a contract that you need to sign a contract. Whatever you need to scan whatever document, whatever you're thinking off that you know, if you need to sign something and just sign a form and then scan it camps Canada will lie to the really quickly. It's a really good product. I've been using it for years, and like I said, they have a free option, which is awesome. He just puts a little at the bottom. That little thing with which says can scan by kicks camp scanner never had any issues with that on. I didn't have someone asked me about it once. Andi. I just said to them all, that's just because I'm using this application and it's a free version. So it has, You know, that little trademark at the bottom And they were like, Oh, that's right. No worries. That's fine. Anyway, guys, give it a go, and I'm sure you'll love camp scanner. 5. LastPass - the best free app to manage all of your passwords and logins: Hey, guys. So one of the applications I want to talk about today's cold last pass, and the name comes from the last password you'll ever have to remember. This is basically a security application, and it's just one of my favorite applications. I use this all the time on a day to the day basis, and I use it on my mobile device. I also use it on the computer on my laptop. I use it all the time, and I'll tell you in a moment why it's just really a great tool to manage all of your passwords, to keep track of all the sites that you visit and automatically be able to log into those sites. It's also a really good application to manage your security because it will allow you to create safe and secure passwords and by safe and secure passwords. I mean long passwords and passwords that have not just, you know, letters and numbers, but special characters and capital letters. And yeah, like I said, you can generating last pass and you can define within last bus how many characters you want a password to be. So I've even generated passwords within last but it's about, you know, off about 100 characters. The other really cool thing about last, best like I mentioned before is that you can use it in all of your devices, and it synchronizes information between them. So they're always in sync on there, always easy to access, easy to use, and it's just very user friendly and very intuitive. I have tried other password manager applications, but last bus is by far my favorite one and another great thing, which makes it stand out from the crowd, it said. It has very, very powerful functionality in its free version. I actually even have a premium subscription with them, and it's just really cheap. You know, you paid $12 a year, and the reason I actually got into that subscription in the beginning with was because at that time they didn't have the option off having the free very shown across all of your devices. So basically they gave you the free option or the free version if you were using to get in a laptop or in a next up or in a more well, but you couldn't use it across everything without paying for the premium version and because I started using this product and I just loved it and started using it so much, I decided to upgrade to the paid version. But like I said before, it was just something really cheap. You know, I only paid $12 for that. The good news for you guys sees that that's no longer the case with last bus. Now you can actually access all of your passwords across multiple devices, and you don't have to pay anything for it. So I don't actually plan to renew my premium subscription because at the moment I don't really see the need for it. I think the main reason why I actually opted into that prima subscription and paid that yearly $12 was because I actually wanted to have access to last us across everything because I just started to use it all the time. And let's just scroll here a little bit. So you see, Yeah, here's there where I was saying to you Now you can use it on all your devices for free. That wasn't the case a few years ago, and it's now that it's something they released recently, and now you can use it across all of your devices, which is just awesome. And if we scroll down, you can finally, with more information about last bus like unlimited password storage so you can put their all your passwords. It doesn't matter if you have 100 1000 a 1,000,000 you can put them there. They're not gonna charge you more for it. Keep simple digital records. So, for example, you can add notes within last best, and they're secure. Notes. They're encrypted, they're protected. And there's a lot of other great features about last best like, for example, it can help you generate passwords. He will remember your password on your logging. Um, there's other great functionality like, for example, they can run a test on your current passwords and check, which are the weak ones. And then you can get last bus to update all those parts. Password team to secure passwords. And in a way, it's also kind of like a book marking service. Because while you're saving your passwords on your logging credentials, it's just also saving the u. R. L. So I like I said, I use this all the time. It's This is like I used this on a day to day basis on my mobile and on my deck stop and on my browser, and I'll show you the moment I love the browser application. It's really good, and it's also really easy to install and just logging into the public into that extension and started using it. I will show you that in a moment. But before we go into all of that and before, I actually show you how it looks like in there on the inside and how to create your account and everything else, let's just look at a little short video about last pass so you guys get a feel for it as well. So I'm just gonna go here on YouTube and I already went through a lot of their videos, and I picked this one in particular because I thought he was one of the best ones, and it's short and sweet. So here you go, guys. Once you add the last pass extension to your browser, you'll see the last pass icon in your browser toolbar. Click the icon to access your vault, launch or edit sites, fill forms and generate passwords when you're on a website. You'll also notice the last class icon in any field. When you click it, this infield icon auto fills your saved passwords for you. Or if you're creating a new account, the infield icon helps you quickly fill your information and generate a secure password. Then last pass will save. That's a tearful automatically. All right, so I hope you enjoyed the video. And like I said, you can find these in YouTube, and you can find a lot of more videos from last bus. If you go and search for last bus, just look for the official last bus account and you'll be able to know which one it is just by looking at the one that is has to stick of verified. That means that's the official last bus account. You'll see a little other videos, like the one I'm making right now from different people about last pass because it's just so popular. It's just such a good application, and they have millions of users worldwide, and I definitely recommend it, especially because a lot of people don't understand nowadays the importance off security with their passwords. And as we become increasingly more and more tied to technology, and more and more digital are in, for our information is to be kept safe. It needs to be kept secure. And a lot of people they rely on our limited human capability off remembering passwords so they might choose, You know, a six digit password on eight digit password, which is really insecure. They might also be doing things like using common words and mixing words. They might be using information from, you know, their personal information for their passwords or their family information or the name of their daughter or than you know, the address where they live. Or a combination of numbers between, for example, their birthdate or a special date. And, you know, hackers. Now they have automated scripts, which in which can easily exploit this information. And a lot of people, you know, they put a lot of their information as well on sites like Facebook, and they make it publicly. They make it publicly available. And then it's just there sitting for hack, you know, open for hackers or for someone to, you know, maliciously use that information. And that's why I recommend that you always keep your information very private. very safe. Very secure your personal information. And I also recommend the use and application like last past, because you condemn, define how long you want Europe like your password to be, and you can. Also they find what you want used as a password. So, for example, you want to combine character, special characters, letters, words, capital letters, and that just makes a password even more secure. Because it's a random number, it's really, really hard, almost impossible for, like a hacker or an automated system to detect it, because they've had to go through like millions and millions of combinations to be able to crack that. And that's why people love last bets because it's just so secure. And it is way more secure than you relying on. Like I said before your limited capability of creating ah secure password and I say secure because you'll probably be using something that's not too long, something that's not combining letter special characters, capital letters and numbers. So that's why I recommend it. And I'm gonna go back to the website and just continue scrolling here to show you a little bit more information about them. So 45 year passwords. They also have, you know, some mobile applications, additional mobile applications about, apart from the official last best like, uh, like this one, for example, that they're showing here on screen, which is the two factor authentication application. So it's just an extra thing that you can do to secure your accounts. You've probably seen this in some off your banks. For example. They might ask you to type your password and then ask you to confirm on SMS code that they'll send to your mobile device. So last best already generated two factor authentication application, which you can also use. It's also free. It's also really good, I recommended, and let's just go here so you can see the difference between the free and the premium plan . Like I said, even if you went for the premium one, it is pretty. Chip is just $1 month. If you look at the information in the free one, in my case, it's pretty much all I need. I don't need anything besides, besides that and the functionality that they're offering for the premium one. It's just something that I don't really personally need. But if you I feel that it's for you will please go ahead and make the purchase. So I do got to say that, you know, originally, when I first heard about a password manager on a password management system, I was a little bit reluctant and Heston to use it because I wasn't really comfortable confiding all of my passwords to a company or to a system. And then I get a little a lot of research, and I read a lot about last bus and its pros, its cons, issues they had had in the past and how they had trouble shoot them and how they had result them. And I read a lot of information, but they recommendation to use last bus actually came from a developer, a friend of mine who had been using for years. And he, you know, I showed him an Excel sheet. I had this Excel sheet, which I had with protected with a password, and I had that encrypted. It was really funny, you know, had that encrypted. And I tried to make it like, really secure. So it was like encrypted. And I had it in, you know, without a long password and everything and in that Excel sheet was where I was storing my passwords at the time. And these developer friend of mine, hey, was really surprised that I was I was using, um, you know, my excel file to actually manage and save my passwords. And when he started talking to me about last beds, well, he said to me, Why are you still doing this in Excel? There's some much better wait for you to do this and you shouldn't be using the same, which is another come by the way. Another very common mistake is that people use one password across everything, and they use the same password across all their applications and all their accounts. That's also really insecure, by the way. You should never do that. You should have, ah, particular separate individual passwords for all your accounts. And like I said, you're not going to remember so many different passwords, especially if you're using a lot of applications like me, for example, so you want to go with something like last pass that will streamline and simplify that process and make it easier for you and going back to the story. So he explained to me how he had been using last was for many years and had never had any issues, and I decided to give it a go. You know, I looked at some videos and I looked at some information online and I thought, I'll give it a go. I've been using last bus for years, and I've never had any issues with them. I loved it. I still love it. And let's just go here and let's go to logging. I don't have an account, So I'm gonna go and create an accountant, and I just want to show you how easy it is to set up an account and what it looks like when you actually start using it. So let's go here to create an account, and I'm gonna put here my email address and the reminder. I'm just gonna put a year. It's a reminder it's optional. Not gonna put anything, and I'm gonna put here. I agree to their terms. Continue. They just want to check that, actually remember my passwords. All right, that's it. So that count has been created. They probably got an email from them confirming that Yep. You go. Welcome to last pass. And this is the email that you get from them and just some more information there that you can let you read that later when you create your own less this account. But I just wanted to show you the process. And now that we've done that, there's multiple ways you can use last bus. Now that you've actually create an account, one of them on one of the recommended ways that I'd recommend is just download the mobile application. Whether you have an iPhone in the APP store or an under devising the Google Play store, download the last bus applications so you can access it on your mobile. If you're in a browser or you know not just desktop or laptop, you can also go to last past dot com. Go to their logging, enter your credentials and then access your your felt. What's called the vault where cheese where you store your passwords in last bus. So let's just going right now. And as you can see here, it looks pretty empty right now because I haven't added any sites yet. But we can do that in a moment. I'll show you how it looks, or you can do it manually. So, for example, you go here outside and you can go click there, and you could just enter the your L. So let's say, for example, ever note. Yep. Ever know dot com The automatic could populate that for us. A productivity tool on your user name. It's gonna be my email. So I'm gonna put here online Demo D female That calm gonna put here Password. All right. And I would hear safe a night's created here my ever note password storage hearing last bus . Like I said, it's a really easy thing to use. You kind of learn as you go. I'm not particularly fond of their last best dot com. You know how this interface looks. I don't think it's a great interface, but that's just how it is. But if you win here, you can check your account settings and you can change stuff. Over here. You can change your password, although things you you know, you normally doing account the accounts heading so many site. But if you went over here, you also have the option of generate secure password so you can go here. And that's what I was talking about before. So you see here how it generated these random password and it's just, um, 12 characters. But I can change that. And if I click here on advanced options, I can say to it last, possibly generate a secure password with upper case, Lower case numbers and Carrick special characters. And I want it to be, you know, 30 characters long. That's pretty long, but let's try that. All right, so there you go. The thing you could actually remember this if you actually were trying to generate a 30 character password, I'm sure you wouldn't be able to remember this. It's just it's just too difficult for the human brain to remember this, unless you have. You know, that's this special memory, right? But most people would not be able to remember that, and that's fine. That's why we have these systems. And that's why we have technology. And that's precisely what discourses about this course is about how we can leverage on the great things about technology on all the different tools that are out there and special tool, especially tools like Last bus, which is free. And if we want to get their extension in the browser, you just go to your browser settings and then here on their extensions, and I'm showing the single Google chrome. That's because I love chrome. That's what I use all the time. And, well, it's like 60 70% percent of the users worldwide use Google Chrome if the biggest browser out there. So most of you watching these are probably using chroma. Swell. That's why I'm showing you everything here on chrome. So if you go here on, get more extensions and you search for last pass well, actually strike here, but you could still search for it. So if you go here last pass? Yep, And last best free password manager offered by last. Best outcome Exactly. That's what we want to go. We're going to get the official thing, and we go here to add to chrome and you see how over here I don't have anything at the moment. It's gonna create their little icon. Wait a second at two Chrome. This is the icon that you're going to see and yes, at extension. And it just added the extension a second ago. So here is the extension. Do you see that really there and it's great out because I haven't looked in. But if I wanted to log in, I could just go here and enter. Could say, Remember my email so I don't have to start Start typing my email every time. You could also get it to remember your password. I recommend you live this off just in case you know you you're at your desk or at home when you forget to you live. You know your computer there without having it locked or secured. Eso. It's better for you not to remember passwords in case somebody else he's using your computer or or they have access to your computer. So if we just log in, go to logging all right, so nights it turned red, so it means it's active, and I really like the browser extension. By the way, I think it's way better than going to last past dot com, You know, here to the to the vault and using this ugly interface, and it's not really very user friendly. You know, these icons here. Some things are confusing. You don't really know something's where you need to go to. But if you go here to the extension, which I love. It's very simple. It's right there, you know, like I want to generate a secure password. It's faster is just one click over here. I had to click, like three times to get there, but here it's just one click, generate password and recently used secure notes. What we talked about before my vault, which is what you have here on screen, and we'll show you all the different password that you haven't over time. This will start populating more and more. Okay, so if we went to, for example, I don't know, let's go to Yahoo, for example. And if I was going to create an account, for example, ing Yahoo, sign up. Do you know this year where it is password This little I come? That's the last vice last bus icon, And if I click there generating feel so you get this option here and more options and then you can choose here how you wanna, how long you want to set your password? Like I said before, what you want toe composed off. Easy to read. Easy to say. If you do want that, I never used these things. By the way I generally used just length and I take everything so it's more secure and I generally put in, you know, 30 but or or 40 some things. I do passwords off 18 characters, 20 characters. It's really up to you. And you could just put feel it'll automatically feel it for you and then when you're signing it will automatically saving and store it for you. So I'm gonna go back to last pass here, the Volt, and I'm going to sign out. Andi, we're just here back to the beginning, and I just wanted to go back here to say this is definitely a really good tool. I recommend that you use it and you will help you manage your online presence, your different accounts or different passwords and will make your life a lot easier and more secure. So give it a go, tried yourselves and let me know how it goes. I'm sure you'll love it. I've been using it for a long time, and I still use it every day.
