Protect yourself with a password manager!

Updated: Nov 19, 2019

One of the best ways to secure yourself online is to use a unique password for each site and service.

Protect yourself with a password manager

One of the biggest issues we encounter during testing is the use of weak passwords and we come across terrible passwords every day.


A password manager is an essential part of your online security arsenal as ever more software and services move to the cloud.


If you reuse the same login credentials for multiple sites and services, just one security breach or successful phishing attack could leave them all vulnerable, and simple passwords that are easy to remember are often equally easy to crack.


A password manager solves both these problems, generating complex, unguessable passwords for your accounts, storing them all in an encrypted vault, and filling out login forms for you automatically. 


Some password managers and generators store your encrypted login info on your hard drive, while others will upload your details to their own servers, enabling you to access them from any internet-connected device.


There are plenty of sites and blogs with opinions on which you should be using, but we use.
