APP SPOTLIGHT: How To Safely And Easily Manage Your Passwords

by | Dec 16, 2018 | App Spotlight

How exactly do you keep track of your passwords?  Do you have a spreadsheet with all of your personal or business passwords?  Do you print them out and put them under your mattress?

Or, are you like many other people who use the same password for all of your accounts?

For many people, their endless number of passwords for their endless number of applications and other accounts drives them crazy.

Even if you’re not in this camp, it’s a good idea to use software specifically built for securely storing your account information.

 

A Possible Solution

One such product is Zoho Vault.  And no, we’re not affiliates of Zoho, but we do use this product.  

Zoho Vault is a paid subscription service where you’ll pay $1 per month per user.  But, it’s absolutely worth the peace of mind and convenience. Zoho Vault makes it easy to store (and even share) your account information.

Zoho Vault also has a mobile app for your phone which allows you to quickly access your passwords while you’re on the go.

Whether you choose Zoho Vault or another secure password management application, you can no longer afford to be careless with your account details.

Choosing Secure Passwords

Many people also struggle with creating secure passwords

There are two reasons for this…

  1. They aren’t creative enough to come up with secure passwords.
  2. They have trouble remembering passwords with special characters, uppercase letters, lowercase letters, and numbers.

These are both good reasons to use an application to manage your passwords.

  1. You won’t have to come up with your own passwords for your accounts.  Zoho Vault (and other applications) have password generators.
  2. Because your passwords are stored inside of an application, you don’t need to remember them.  You only need to remember one secure password to gain access to your other passwords.

Now is as good of time as any to start using password management software.  You can then update all of your passwords to make them more secure.

Trust me, the peace of mind will be worth it!
