Using Password Managers for Top Security
Having secure passwords is a big deal these days. So much of our lives are online and cyber crime is going strong! One of your best lines of defense for your personal accounts is a complex password.
Many people will choose one strong combination of letters, numbers and characters and then use it for everything. The problem is, if that password becomes compromised, then all your personal information is at risk. So what is the best option? We love password managers!
These handy little applications will store, generate and manage multiple random passwords for you on an encrypted database. You can retrieve your passwords when needed by using a master password. Easy peasy.
Just make sure said master password is a strong one and avoids the common substitutions or order such as:
- First letter is a capital
- o's are substituted for zeros or As for 4s
- punctuation or symbol at the end of your word
(Bet we described the majority of your passwords there!) While these passwords may be difficult for a human to figure out, they are not for a computer program.
