5 Key Benefits of Using a Password Manager

Remembering passwords can be challenging. Cracking passwords, given the appropriate technological tools, is simpler than one might expect. Moreover, reusing passwords poses a significant risk.

Enter the password manager.

Password managers operate like this: you enter all of your usernames and passwords into the manager, and it secures them in an encrypted vault. Thanks to encryption, only you have access to your actual passwords, not the companies providing the service.

Your password manager can help in transforming your outdated, simple, or recycled passwords into distinct, randomly created ones, enhancing the security of each account. These newly generated, complex passwords are subsequently saved in the vault.

Next, to safeguard your vault, you create a one master password. This becomes the only password you need to remember. Additionally, you can implement further security measures or protocols, like two-factor authentication, to enhance the vault’s security.

Then, whenever you’re logging into a website or app, your password manager intervenes. You verify your identity to the password manager, which then provides the correct credentials and logs you in.

The benefits here are numerous:

  • You don’t have to remember 137 unique passwords.
  • You have no incentive to reuse passwords.
  • Every account gets a unique, complex password.
  • The process of logging in gets simpler (no guesswork or password resets).
  • Your business and personal accounts become exponentially more secure. 

So, what are the next steps?

The reality is, setting up a password manager for personal use is quite simple. However, rolling one out across an entire organization can be more complex and might necessitate IT assistance.
