Password Managers, Do You Have One?

Imagine you are at your desk trying to log into one of the software programs your business uses online. You type in the password, and it doesn’t work. You try a different password, and that doesn’t work. Before you know it, you are locked out of the account and have to change the password, or you choose the forgot password link and have to change the password. With either situation you find yourself in, it takes up a lot of your precious time and mental energy. 

If only there were a way you didn’t have to remember umpteen million passwords for everything. Having a spreadsheet with all login credentials is a good idea but not ideal for time-saving, especially if you have a lot of passwords. Writing them in a notebook is good until you lose or misplace them somewhere. 

Password managers are superheroes, in our opinion. Having a password manager in our line of work is necessary to keep up with our business passwords and the login credentials of our clients. We also need security to keep all the information safe. 

With password managers, you can share passwords securely, autofill login credentials, automatically update new passwords, and it can create passwords for you. The only password you need to remember is the master password for the password manager. Some manager programs have secret keys for when you get locked out of your account. You use the secret key and your master password to get back into your account.
