Password Manager

Feb 2, 2009

Oops I forgot my password; Why you need a password manager!

If you are like me, you are terrible about managing your passwords. Either you can’t remember them or have so many in circulation that you can’t remember which password is for which site. Solution? Password Manager.

A password manager is designed to store all kinds of crucial information: passwords, credit cards, software registrations and so on. Once you have entered the data, only one password is required to unlock the program. Many password manager programs allow for synchronization with Smart Phones, so you have your passwords and other data at your fingertips wherever you go.

I use my password manager daily and no longer waste time going through the dreaded “forgot password” process that most sites require to retrieve your password.

What is this going to cost me?

Nothing! If you are looking for a basic password manager setup, there are many freebies available to you, the most popular being KeePass; a free open source password manager.

Need help choosing the right password manager, or syncing it to your SmartPhone or Treo? Call us today!
