So many *choose your own explicative* passwords to remember with different requirements!!! Ugh, there must be a way to remember them all without writing them on post-it notes!! Hello Password Manager!
What is a password manager and why should I use one? According to Wikipedia, a password manager “assists in generating and retrieving complex passwords, potentially storing such passwords in an encrypted database or calculating them on demand”.
Here’s how it works:
- Install the Password Manager
- Enter all your passwords you want it to remember
- When visiting a website, the password can be pulled from the password manager and automatically filled in to the fields.
When you are required to change a password, you can use the password generator, built into most Password Managers, to generate a long complex password. Now, you can be secure and compliant without having to remember that password.
When selecting a password manager you should ensure that it *does* store your passwords in an encrypted format and has multi-factor authentication. For the top Password Managers in 2019, including complete features and reviews, check out this article from PC Magazine here.
