Digital businesses are constantly evolving with every new year and 2022 is no exception. One modern development in the age of digital businesses is the influx of accounts and passwords an organization needs to manage. Technology is being updated and new devices are emerging all the time. With more and more accounts and passwords to manage, are you using the right technology for your online business?
What are Password Managers?
Password managers help to drastically enhance your workflow. They are applications that store your passwords securely so you can access long-string passwords with ease. Password managers have features such as saving passwords, generating random secure ones, and auto-fill. Password managers are becoming a necessity for operating in a digital context.
Avoid Data Breaches
Most account/password breaches happen due to a guessable, short, password. Machines that are dedicated to brute-forcing passwords can even find the password’s you manually created to not be secure enough. Password managers give you the option to generate passwords as long as 30 characters with a random variety of cased letters, numbers, and characters. Plus, you don’t have to worry about memorizing the whole thing. Just keep secure your password for the manager itself, and you can access your other stored passwords.
There are many password manager options available that can be suitable for online businesses such as LastPass and BitWarden. Individuals who like to keep their accounts and password management secure and simplified can benefit from these managers as well but also have Google Password Manager and Apple Keychain as more user-friendly managers.
