Default Consider a password manager for internet security

If you've never used a password manager as part of your online safety regimen, you've been playing with fire. Don't get burned, because password hacking is relatively easy. An online password manager can help take the target off your rear.



Save it in your web browser



If you need online safety, in-browser password management is always a good idea. All browsers have it, and it is really convenient. It will help protect you as long as you do not do it on a public computer. The web browser will save your passwords and log-in data.



Password generation



Another brilliant idea was to create one master password that only you know that unlocks anything else. Web-based password management options such as Roboform Everywhere and LastPass can help you with this. Anything happens locally on your computer, which means you might be in danger if someone else utilizes the computer too. You will even need to make sure your master password is much stronger than an average password, and do not repeat it with other passwords.
