Many people do not want to deal with the hassle of remembering long, complicated, and separate passwords across different accounts. There is a tendency to reuse passwords that are easy to remember and are associated with the individual, for example, the person’s last name and birth date. A survey conducted by Ipsos on behalf of Google shows that 65% of Americans are reusing passwords on different accounts. This is a big security risk.
That’s when password managers come in. Password managers help make life easier by simplifying the process of remembering so many logins and passwords. Password managers automatically generate complex, hard-to-decipher passwords and auto-fill them for you when you visit websites, so you do not need to remember them. You can use them when you are on a computer browser or on a mobile app for your phone.
Here is the list of benefits of using a password manager:
There is only one password you need to remember– It stores all of your passwords in a single account. The only password you need to remember is the one you use for your password manager account.
Generate complex, hard-to-decipher passwords– It can generate complicated and random passwords for you. Password cracking software is designed to guess commonly used passwords. Complex and random passwords are more difficult to guess than those people come up with.
Use the convenience of auto-fill– Save time from typing and remembering long passwords by enabling auto-fill.
Keep your credentials secure– A password manager stores your passwords in a secure vault, which can only be unlocked using a master password. Add a layer of multi-factor authentication to help keep everything extra secure.
