Day 60: Password managers explained
Are you using them?
No. Well you should!
Passwords are a tricky concept.
The more complex your password is, the better.
Hard to remember
The more complex, the hardest to remember.
And this part can be frustrating.
Passwords must be unique for each site
For each site, that you have an account on.
Your password needs to be unique.
Reuse complex password everywhere?
Once someone gets a hold of your super unique password.
They can get access to ALL your accounts.
Password managers come in
Password managers solve the above issue.
They allow you to use a “MASTER” password on the password manager.
Then, you are able to get access to all your passwords!
There are free and paid options out there.
