You can’t expect to remember all your unique passwords. Yet the days of writing them down on Post-it notes are over. Here’s where password managers come in.
Password managers generate, manage, and store many different passwords. So instead of having to remember all your login information, the password manager stores and auto fills that for you. Many password managers have apps you can use on mobile devices. This gives you the advantage of convenience not only on your desktop computer but also on the go.
More Benefits of Password Managers
Some password managers offer added security benefits, as well. They might:
· warn you of weak password and login credentials;
· remind you to change your passwords;
· notify you if your passwords may have been compromised in a breach;
· advise you against repeating access credentials if you’re about to do so.
Another advantage is that you can conveniently share passwords with others. Maybe you want to allow a work colleague access to applications you’re using remotely. A managed password sharing feature can allow them to see selected passwords. You can choose what information is shown so important details stay private. Also, when you change your credentials, the password will change on their end, too.
You can also use a password manager to secure other important information such as credit card numbers or other personally identifying information. Keeping that kind of data in an unencrypted note on your desktop or mobile device is unsafe, but you can take advantage of password manager encryption to safely store those precious details.
