How To Manage Passwords
Here is an easy way to manage all your passwords. I use and recommend LastPass. The free version of the service offers everything a home user need. Alternatively, you can try the open-source and free Bitwarden or the more famous 1Password.
These are password managers that securely save and organize your passwords, and also create safe ones for you. You won’t have to memorize or write down your passwords anymore. To make things easier, with one click, they will sign you into websites.
All you need to remember is one master password to have access to all your other passwords. The service ensures that all information is stored encrypted so nobody can ever access your data without the master password. Among the features of the service, they offer you: access to all your passwords on all your devices, save and fill passwords, password generator, two-factor authentication, and security challenge. This last feature scans all your logins for duplicated, old, weak or compromised passwords.
If you need to come up with passwords that you have to remember, but hard to guess, make sure to create something at least 14 characters long, mixing letters, numbers, and symbols. The best idea, in this case, is to use a passphrase. You can learn more and get one at Use a Passphrase website.
Give it a try and remember to keep your master password hard to guess and safe.
