Why do I need a password manager?
Did you know that weak, compromised and reused passwords caused 80% percent of all data breaches in 2019? This can be quite surprising, considering that 91% of people know that reusing a password is a security risk. So why do the majority of people practice poor password hygiene anyway?
Currently, the standard ‘secure’ password requires a minimum of 12-16 characters, combination of upper/lowercase, numbers and symbols. As you can imagine, creating secure, unique, and memorable passwords for each and every one of your online accounts is tedious and cumbersome at best. This might explain why 65% of people still reuse their passwords across multiple sites and accounts despite the risk.
However, by using a password manager, you can avoid compromising your passwords all together. Password managers securely store your passwords in an encrypted password vault that can only be unlocked by one master password. Instead of memorizing dozens of passwords, you only need to remember one. Password managers also auto-generate highly secure passwords and update them for you, alert you when a password has been compromised, and warn you when you encounter a phishing attack.
