For every online account you use, you need to create a long, strong, unique password and use this alongside Multifactor Authentication.
Remembering all of your long and complex passwords can be tricky and sometimes impossible. However, by using a Password Manager, you can create and keep all your passwords safe and accessible in one encrypted space, which requires you to remember only one master password.
Information that is stored in a Password Manager
- Supplier Account logins and password details.
- Email addresses and passwords.
- Social media logins and and password details.
- Website and platform logins and passwords.
- And much more.
