Password Management

Password Problems and Solutions

Are you like many computer or smartphone
users when it comes to passwords?

Do you have reused passwords on more
than one web site?

Then this is for you.

A password is your secret key to
the digital world but they are subject to
hacking.

Your computer may be secure, but are the
companies you buy from secure?

Just look at recent hacks where
user names and passwords are stolen
and sold to hackers.

Do you shop on line? Did you buy
something from a store on the web?
Do you check your bank account records,
perhaps you trade stocks or buy
real estate? You, my friend, are
a target.

Hackers use breaches to supply crooks
info to cross-reference one breach database
(your name) against another.

There is a solution, use a password
manager. It stores all your passwords
and keeps them safe. You just need
to remember one password to access
all you web sites, email, or data.

A password
manager will keep track of all
your web site passwords.
It will create complex and un-hackable
passwords for you or will make
suggestions about the passwords
you create. Need to change passwords,
like you should about every three
months or so, then password manager
can do it for you then update your
saved password to the new one.

If remembering and
managing multiple passwords is a
task, or if you are not creative
with passwords that you can remember,
then a password manager is your best
solution. I use KeeperMSP and MSecure.
They are easy to use, stores all your secrets,
is inexpensive and can be managed for
you, i.e. local help is available.
Depending on your needs, it ranges
from four to eight dollars a month,
fully managed, installed and setup
for you.

Now go do passwords right.
