Are you still writing down your passwords or manage them with your browser? This might not be a good idea.
Browser add-ons are nice, but are they as secure as you need them to be. There are special software tools you could use to manage your passwords.
Benefits of password storage tools
The great benefit is, that you are the only one who has access to your passwords. You just need to remember one password and have access to all passwords you created.
If you use one password or single-sign-on from the bigger platforms and your account with them gets hacked, good luck.
It’s not that I’m paranoid, but safety comes first. I use different passwords with every internet service I use.
Due to the password tool I use, managing my passwords is easy as I could arrange them in groups.
Furthermore, I could even give them a color if they are very important to me or in case there is some action required with the service it belongs to.
On top of that, you are able to even set expiry dates, thus you have to create new passwords once in a while.
Which password tool to use?
Well, there are so many out there today that you have a great choice.
However, I could recommend KeePass. Since years, I use KeePass now, and I have spoken to many IT professionals about password storage.
To my amazement most of them are using Keepass either.
The beauty of KeePass is that it is available for many operating systems like Windows, Linux, Android and even for Apple devices.
A password generation feature is also integrated, which helps you to create random passwords. Usually I even alter the random generated passwords with some extra stuff.
And of course, KeePass also shows you how strong the password is that you created.
Combined with your own cloud, you could have your password safe with you where ever you go.
