What is a password manager and how can they make your life easier?
The best advice when creating passwords is to create one which is strong and unique for each account, which means we need to remember a lot of passwords! That’s why password managers are here to help. They have been designed to stop us from reusing passwords or from using weak ones.
Password Managers solve all of these problems by generating and storing strong complex passwords for you. They automatically fill in the login information on each website for you, which means you don’t have to remember every username and password. If you’re creating a new account your password manager will even generate a new and secure password for you. They store your passwords in an encrypted vault and you only need to remember ONE master password to log in and unlock the vault.
Some popular Password Managers available to use are 1Password, LastPass and Dashlane. These versions also have mobile applications so your accounts can be kept secure on all devices! Most Managers have a free and premium accounts available. However, to take full advantage of all the security features you do need to pay. It’s a small price that could save you a lot of hassle and prevent anyone gaining access to your accounts.
