The benefits of using a password manager

Simple passwords are embarrassingly easy to crack such as Fluffy123. Long, complex passwords that contain many alphanumeric characters like 7Ku&Rw33%lH6?4Hs9/tr! are harder to crack but a nightmare to remember. That’s where a password manager can help you.

The benefits of using a password manager for your business include:

• it’s easier for staff to use unique passwords that are harder for an attacker to guess (this increases the quality of passwords in your organisation)
• your staff don’t need to remember as many passwords – reducing this burden can reduce their reliance on insecure workarounds such as writing passwords down somewhere
• you can use the same password manager across multiple devices
• password managers are easy to use
• some password managers support multi-factor authentication (MFA), which makes the system doubly secure. A potential attacker would need both your master password and your security token, usually an app on your mobile phone, text message, facial recognition or fingerprint (not that easy to crack).
