Hackers are everywhere and they are looking for weak passwords to get in and cause destruction on your networks and devices daily. The best way to combat that is through strong passwords. They need to be complex and lengthy. Be sure to include numbers, letters, and symbols with a good number of characters. Even with today’s sophisticated hacking methods, computers still are not able to crack long passwords quickly. The challenge is how you remember a secure password with all those numbers, symbols, and letters. Well, your answer would be a password manager. The manager secures your password for you, so many times you do not even need to know what the passwords are. The manager then fills it into your browser when you need to recall it for a certain site. If you are looking for password management, some options would be Last Pass, 1Password, and Bitwarden. I have tried and liked Last Pass and 1Password and liked Bitwarden because it is hosted on your own server instead of the cloud and helps to manage passwords internally. It’s helpful when your manager notifies you when there was a breach and there is a possibility that one of your passwords was compromised.
