One of the things that you’ll notice when you have a website is that suddenly you’ll have a lot of passwords to memorise.
Although some people may think it is ok to have the same password for multiple websites, it isn’t. Just as using a single word as a password or “123456” as a password.
This is no longer safe.
One of the things that you should do is to have a unique username and a unique password for each website.
Plus, each password you choose needs to have letters, numbers, and even “, #, =, ? among others to make sure no hacker can access your accounts.
But how can you memorise so many passwords, with a huge length (most websites require a minimum of 8 characters passwords)? This is where password managers come in.
There are many great password managers, both free and paid. With their help, you won’t need to memorise any password for any website. And they are safe. So, here are the 3 best free password managers you can use:
Keepass is one of the best free password managers you can have. With KeePass, you will have a very strong encryption, and your passwords are not centralised in a unique database.
So, even if a hacker accesses one of their databases, they won’t access all your passwords and you still have the powerful encryption protecting you.
Although there are other free password managers that are more aesthetically appealing, the thing is that with KeePass, you have full control over your encryption keys. And this only happens because you’re the one who creates them and they are not stored anywhere.
Another great advantage is the fact that you can have browser integration. And you can be sure this will save you a lot of time.
LastPass is one of the most well-known free password managers.
There’s no doubt that it is a lot more aesthetically appealing than the KeePass but their features are very similar. One of the main advantages of the LastPass is the fact that you can use it on all your devices.
No matter if you’re using an iMac, an iPad, the latest Windows version, or an Android tablet or smartphone, you can have the same LastPass on all these devices.
When you need to change one password by any reason at all, it will immediately change it on all your devices. And this is a true time saver.
This last version of the LastPass includes a new sharing centre, a new emergency access password inheritance, and a better user interface of the online password vault.
If there is one thing that we have some doubts regards their default settings of the password generator. We believe they should be enhanced.
3: LogMeOnce Password Management Suite Premium:
One of the main advantages of Logmeonce password manager is the fact that it works well on multiple operating systems including Linux, macOS, Windows, Android, and iOS.
Built with a two-factor authentication to make sure you’re the only one who has access to your passwords plus providing you with a password strength report, you can be sure that your passwords will not only be safer as they won’t be hacked that easy.
However, there is a catch. If you want to have a SMS-based two-factor authentication, you’ll actually need to pay a fee.
As you can see, you have multiple options to make sure you have all your passwords and accounts secured.
There’s no need to keep having the same old password in all the accounts you will need to create for your new website.
