What is a password manager?
A password manager is an application where you can store all your passwords. The password manager ensures that you can create a different secure password for each online account, without having to remember these passwords yourself. A password manager uses one master password to access all passwords.
In a password manager you can not only manage passwords, but also manage credit cards or secure notes. It is possible to create new passwords within a password manager.
Most well-known and secure password managers are 1Password and LastPass.
Tips to safely create and store passwords
Creating secure password and storing password secure is very important. A few tips that can help you:
- Make sure the password is at least 15 characters long. The longer the password, the more difficult it is to hack the password.
- Make sure to use a combination of lowercase / uppercase letters, numbers and special symbols. This makes it more difficult for hackers to hack the password.
- Make sure to use a different password for each online account. This avoids the risk of all your accounts being hacked, once your password is leaked.
- Always store all your passwords securely in a password manager, such as 1Password or LastPass. This means you do not have to remember difficult passwords yourself and that you can use a different password for each account.
- Regularly check whether your email address and password have been leaked in a data breach. A useful website for this is Have I Been Pwned. Make sure you get a notification if your email address has been leaked. Immediately create a new password as soon as your password has been leaked.
