How a Password Manager removes the problem of having to remember all your passwords

In this day and age, most of us already know we should use a unique password for each login account. Whether it’s your device login, Amazon or Gmail, every account requires its own unique password to reduce your Cyber risk.

I often see people write their passwords down on a post-it note, in a ‘password’ book, or even kept electronically in a spreadsheet.

The motive behind writing down passwords or storing them in a spreadsheet is understandable, it’s impossible to remember all your passwords! Especially nowadays, where passwords need to be longer than ever.

This is where a Password Manager becomes invaluable. Password Managers allow you to store passwords in 1 central, secure location. You will no longer need to remember each password because the Password Manager will automatically enter your login details for you.

Here are 6 reasons a Password Manager could help your business and staff:

  1. Maximise staff productivity by logging in to every website without your staff having to remember any passwords.
  2. Reduce your risk of passwords being compromised or stolen by setting standardised strong passwords to help prevent data breaches and fines.
  3. Automatically fills in forms with contact information such as name, email, telephone number, card details, etc.
  4. Availability of all passwords from anywhere and any device, including a mobile app.
  5. Staff no longer have to think about setting new, secure passwords as these are created by a Password Generator tool, integrated into the webpage.
  6. Remove the risk of ex-employees accessing web pages with company email.
