If you are like most computer users, you have a small armada of passwords for the plethora of accounts you have. With that many accounts and passwords surely, things will be forgotten and lost. Then you must go through the hassle of continually resetting the password every time this occurs! Now you could opt to use similar passwords for all your accounts, but then you run the risk of not just one but all your accounts being compromised. Or you could use different passwords for every website and always click the “Remember Me” button. Still, again, if some unauthorized user accesses to your machine, they have no issue logging in to all your accounts. I know what you are thinking, “Why don’t I just write them all down?” That is a good idea; however, are you willing to carry that book with you everywhere you go? What if you lose it at the house or lose it when you are out in public? Thankfully, there is help.

Password managers enable you to keep track of your passwords and accounts without having to remember them all. The added benefit is that password managers can create extremely complex passwords for your accounts, ranging from 20+ characters, including symbols, numbers, and capital letters! Furthermore, most password managers have an autofill feature, meaning you no longer have to use “Remember Me.” What’s the catch? There is none! The only password you are responsible for is your “Master Password,” so make sure it is incredibly secure! You will use this master password to log yourself into the password manager, granting you access to all your passwords and accounts.

One of our personal favorites is LastPass. LastPass flawlessly integrates with most browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc.) as a browser extension. But don’t take our word for it, go and give them a try! If you are worried about LastPass getting breached, a legitimate concern to have, worry not. LastPass does not personally store your passwords. While they may be stored on a server LastPass owns, the passwords are encrypted to ensure that even in the event of a data breach, hackers cannot uncover anything that may damage users.

If you are worried about password managers, please do not hesitate to reach out to us! We are more than willing to answer any questions you may have to help ease your concerns. I think password managers are great. They allow the user to create extremely complex passwords without the worry of having to keep them written down or stored in one’s memory. They make the day-to-day web browsing much more comfortable and more convenient.

    Very good discussion! The good coder to me is the one that can identify when to write good software and when just not to write anything at all, because sometimes the requirement become irrelevant given the work to accomplish certain tasks and money comes in the picture.
