In my last tip, I explained why it’s critical not to use the same password all over the Internet, but this invariably leads to a common question: How do I remember so many complicated passwords?
The answer is simply 'you can’t', which is why you should use some form of password manager so you can create long, secure passwords for each of your accounts.
Password managers are all designed to create and manage your passwords for all your websites and devices in a very secure manner so all you have to remember is one password.
They include password generators, auto form filling, encrypted storage, two-factor authentication and they easily integrate with your browsers & mobile devices.
Password managers can be a bit complicated to get setup for non-techies, but once it is configured, they are easy to use.
One of my favorites called LastPass which has a powerful free version.
This security step is way too important to ignore, so if this is more than you can handle, get some help!
