Passwords are everywhere! It is the minimum security safeguard for all our devices – from our computers to ATM banking, to voice mail to security alarms.
But how secure are your passwords?
Passwords that are easy to ‘hack' or guess are opportunities for attackers to access personal or sensitive information or install malware (malicious software).
We are plagued by the necessity to remember a multitude of passwords. Some websites have basic complexity requirements and others do not. Some require you to change your password on a regular basis. We need different passwords for banking, social media, shopping, and just about anything online.
Keeping track of all these passwords can be a nightmare and the worst thing you can do is make them all the same.
One solution is to use a password manager. A password manager is a locally installed software applications that you can have on your computer and your mobile devices. It assists you to create and retrieve complex passwords on demand for all of your on-line (and off-line) user accounts from your Fracebook to your bank accounts.
There are a number of password managers that help store all of your accounts such as Dashlane, LastPass, 1Password, KeePass, RoboForm, Keeper Password, Sticky Password, and True Key.
Your password manager account is controlled by a single strong master password to unlock your “vault” of individual account passwords.
