Password Management: Why You Need It and How to Choose the Right System

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 81% of hacking-related breaches leveraged passwords that were stolen, weak, or both. Weak passwords often occur because people find it time-consuming and difficult to maintain multiple passwords. The pitfall in reusing the same password is that if the hacker guesses it, he or she then has access to every site or application associated with it. 

Most people use passwords for both work and home computing, making them vulnerable on both ends. A password manager helps you keep hacking at bay by storing your passwords either locally or remotely through an encrypted database. By using a password manager, you save yourself the headache of remembering multiple passwords because you generate and remember one "master” password. This master password becomes your key to unlocking and accessing multiple passwords.
