Are You Using Password Management Software?

Proper Password Management Software Can Be A Powerful Weapon Against Identity Theft

Passwords are our safeguards for our online accounts, but if you don't practice proper password management that sense of security your passwords give you may be a false one. Fortunately, there are password management tools out there that can help. Wondering what password management software is and why you would even need it? Here's the answers you're looking for...

What Is Password Management Software?

There are different types of password management software on the market. The most effective will help you create passwords that are virtually impossible to crack and will maintain a database of those passwords so you don't have to remember all of them.

How It Helps

So how exactly does password management software help you prevent identity theft? First and foremost, it helps you create solid passwords. Those cute little "mynamemybirthday" passwords may be easy to remember, but they're also easy to hack and crack.

When you use password management software to generate passwords for you, the software doesn't care what your name or birth date are -- it just cares about creating a password that's virtually impossible to break. Because of this, passwords to your online accounts are safer than they would be if you created them from thin air.

Password management software also helps you by making it more convenient to change your passwords. Many of us don't change our passwords every 3 months (like we should). After all, it's hard enough to remember all those passwords without having to change them regularly.

That's where password management software can help. Not only can you generate new passwords with the click of the mouse, the software will store those passwords for you in a secured and encrypted database.

Passwords Are The Key

If passwords are the keys to all of your online accounts and information (and they are) then password management software is the vault you keep those keys in. Do yourself a favor – if you're serious about preventing identity theft then protect yourself and your information with password management software.
