Once upon a time, I thought that password managers were of the devil.
How can it be safe to store my passwords online, all in one place?
Plus, won't it be time-consuming to set up and maintain online password storage?
Those were my thoughts.
But then I did some research.
And I found that, though password managers certainly don't guarantee password safety, they're leagues better than typical storage methods.
Let's be honest -- most of us store passwords on paper on our desk. Or on a Word Doc on our hard drive (guilty).
And we use the same passwords for multiple accounts (again, guilty).
The bottom line is, password managers provide a level of security that's far beyond what most of us manage on our own.
And bonus, they're seriously convenient.
I love my password manager.
It integrates seamlessly with my browser.
It auto-fills all of my login details for me, and generates secure passwords for me so I don't use the same one, ever.
It saves me so much time.
I use LastPass (though I know 1Password is great, too).
Many of my clients come to me without secure password storage; they simply aren't aware of how easy a problem it is to solve.
I'm making it a point now to discuss this with them.
Get a password manager -- it'll change your life.
Hope that was helpful,
