Help Managing Passwords

Last week, I discussed the dangers of using the same password on all your accounts, which always leads to this question: How the heck do I remember all those passwords?

The simple answer is you can’t; you'll need help from some type of password management program in order to use long, complicated passwords on each of your online accounts.

Password management software is an easy way to create and manage all your passwords across all your devices and websites in a secure manner.

Using them means you only need to remember is one password.

Most all of them include encrypted storage of your passwords,
password generators, auto form fillers, 2-factor verification and can integrate right into your browser or mobile device.

The initial process may seem a bit complicated for some non-technical users, but once your password manager is setup, it’s really simple to use.

One of my recommendations for new users is LastPass which comes in both free and premium versions. You can test it out with the free version and only pay the annual fee if you want the premium features.

This issue is too important to ignore, so get help if you need it.
