Have you heard of “Password Managers” before, but not sure what it is? Well a Password manager is a software application or hardware that helps a user store, organize and create strong passwords. Password managers requires one password to log in with, then you can access all of the others. These type of programs help to generate or create strong passwords. Which is needed, so that hackers have a much harder time trying to get into all of your info.
What makes a good password you ask? Each of your passwords should be at least 16 characters, and contain a combination of numbers, symbols, uppercase letters, lowercase letters. Your password should be different for every site you log into. Using one word and then changing the numbers or symbols after isn’t secure. If a hacker cracks one account, he or she will be able to access the rest of your accounts.
There are many different password managers out there, we have used Roboform and LastPass for a few years now and wouldn’t get rid of them for anything. These programs do take a few minutes to get used to, but they are worth the time. The only password you have to remember is the master password, which is encrypted so its harder for hackers to get.
