Nowadays, we all have a billion passwords. Maybe not quite a billion, but we have many of them. How do you keep track of them all?
Are you one that uses the same password for everything? So that one data leak and you are screwed big time. Do you use the following passwords?
- Password 1234
Yeah, that isn’t too secure. I have known people who have used that and couldn’t understand why their email was getting hacked all the time. I can tell you why!!
The best way to do a password is the following:
- Minimum password length
- 12 characters
- Lower and upper case letters
- Numbers 0 to 9
- Special Characters
You will have to check where you are putting your password in. Some might not allow some of these characters.
If you make a password, you now have to remember it. Or you can write it down somewhere. Not good.
This is where you go out and get a company that provides an app, software, website, or something else to help you provide a safe place for your passwords.
Yep, it is called a password manager. Here are a few of them
- Google password manager
I could go on and on.
Does it do
Well, you can create an account and start to store your passwords. It will even help you create a secure password. Then, you can save it to the password manager, and there you go.
Is a web browser safe to store passwords? Well, it all depends on the person. You can keep your passwords using Google, Firefox, Microsoft, or Apple. They all have different types of security.
However, you will most likely have to create a complicated master password so that you are the only one with access to your passwords. But remembering one password is better than 100.
Up to you
What you do with your passwords is up to you. But losing your information, social media accounts, and other things. Is it worth it to go the easy route?
