Everyone Needs a Password Manager
Is your bank password your dog’s name? Do you use your birthday to log into your email? Do you think you’re safe, because you memorized one long, strong password that you use everywhere? In all three cases, your secure accounts are in danger. Malefactors can guess simple, weak passwords to break into your accounts. And if they breach one of your secure sites, stealing your username and password along with thousands of others, they can try that strong password on all of your other accounts. You need to use a strong, unique password for every site, and remembering that much information just isn’t humanly possible. The solution? Enlist a password manager to both remember your existing passwords and generate new, strong ones.
