A password manager is an app / cloud / web based service that helps you remember and keep track of all your passwords.
How Do Password Managers Work?
Logging into just one service allows you access to all the other sites and services you use. That’s why the top password managers are named “LastPass” as in this is the last password you will need to remember, and “1Password”, meaning you only have to remember one password, not 500.
What Are the Benefits?
- They help you create different passwords for each site (this is much safer than using he same password all over the web)
- You can easily create and use very complex passwords, like this – Sp3rC0p13xn0!!
- Stay focused on your work by minimizing the distraction of resetting your passwords when you forget them.
