Sooooo many people I know have password problems these days. Most of us use different versions of the same password for every login on the internet – and who can blame us? Remembering different, complicated passwords is nearly impossible and writing them down is nearly as dangerous. The other common method of password management is to compile all passwords into an excel document. Also, not the most secure option. Weak password management is very appealing to hackers and none of us have time to deal with those guys.
Which brings me to a very important question…
How do I manage my passwords in a functional easy way and protect my data?
The solution is easy – use a password management tool! This is an easy fix that increases your security against a very common problem. Below are two options for password management tools we have used.
