Standard Notes uses stronger encryption technology than industry-leading password managers

Standard Notes is a free, open-source, and completely encrypted notes app that runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android and the Web. The focus of Standard Notes is simplicity and security. What has me sold on Standard Notes is the “end-to-end encryption” that features stronger encryption than the industry-leading password managers. No one, but you can read your notes. I would not be afraid to store passwords or any other confidential or personal information in Standard Notes.

Standard Notes uses stronger encryption technology than industry-leading password managers. In most cases, leading password managers use PBKDF2 for key derivation and AES-256 for encryption. Standard Notes uses post-PBKDF2 Argon2 for key derivation and post-AES XChaCha20-Poly1305 for encryption. This means that Standard Notes makes for an excellent place to store passwords, keys, and other secretive credentials.

Get the last FREE version of FastStone Capture

A screen capture utility is a “must have” on any PC (or flash drive); especially if you are a writer, blogger, graphic designer, desktop publisher, etc… I have tried and tested many of the capture utilities and the one that has set well with me is “FastStone Capture”.  FastStone Capture went commercial after version 5.3; however, the freeware version is still available at various sites around the internet.  This little utility is a well thought out screen capture utility. It  is no wonder the author opted to go commercial with it. I highly suggest purchasing this screen capture utility if you can; but, if you can’t, follow the instructions below to get the last “FREE” version.

Before I tell you where you can get FastStone Capture (the last freeware version), let me give you some hightlights. The download that I will refer you to is a download for the portable version that can be installed on your flash drive or into a folder of your choice on your PC. This way, if you do not like it, simply delete the folder; but I’m telling you this little app rocks and is very easy to use.

FastStone Capture uses very little screen space and provides (6) different screen capture modes (see below) that can be activated by clicking one of the mode buttons in the application or by using hotkey combinations on your keyboard.


1. Capture Active Window

2. Capture Window /Object

3. Capture Rectangle Region

4. Capture Freehand Region

5. Capture Full Screen

6. Capture Scrolling Window

With FastStone Capture you have the option of sending the captured result to a built in graphic editor, to the clipboard, to a file, to the printer, or to an email (as an attachment).  The output file can be saved to the most common graphic file formats (e.g. gif, png, bmp, jpg, tif) or as a PDF file. Settings are also available that allow you to auto capture to an edge/watermark or to prompt you each time to assign a caption or label to your captured result.  This little app also features a built-in graphic editor, a screen magnifier and a screen color picker.

If you do not have this app, I suggest you get it now…  You can download FastStone Capture (last freeware version) [ HERE ] .

If you would like to take a look at the paid (current version), CLICK HERE

Kudos to the author of FastStone Capture for making such a wonderful application.

Protect Your Online Privacy with Surfshark VPN

If you truly want a method to browse the internet privately; to keep yourself from being tracked; and to hide your location (even from your ISP); then, you should be using a VPN (Virtual Private Network). Please do not let the big words scare you away, because installing and using a VPN is quite simple (and is actually a no-brainer at a time where anything and everything you do on the internet is a deep intrusion of your privacy).

A Virtual Private Network is a service that allows you to connect to the Internet via an encrypted tunnel to ensure your online privacy and protect your sensitive data. A VPN is commonly used to secure connection to public Wi-FI hotspot, hide IP address and make your browsing private.

Recently, here at “Tech News for You”, I decided it was time to explore the various VPN services and buy into one. I highly suggest that you avoid any VPN services that are free due to the likelihood those services will be harvesting your data and selling it. A commercial (and reputable) VPN is the way to go and there are some really good one’s out there. The cost is minimal considering the protection you are buying into.

The VPN service I ended up subscribing to is Surfshark. If you are interested in Surfshark, you can get a FREE month (30 days); register & get the USD 2.49/mo deal; get 30-day bonus on top; and use Surfshark on unlimited devices…
