Which Password Manager should you use?
Everyone says that the best way to protect online accounts is to ensure that our passwords are strong and that we use different passwords on all accounts. But when you have 10 different accounts (and that’s only counting business accounts), how are you supposed to remember the strong passwords you created for all of them?
There is a solution that allows you to protect your accounts by having strong and different passwords on all of them, while also only having to remember one. By using a password manager, you can store all your passwords and access them with one master password.
But even password managers can have security breaches, so which one should you use to protect your business? Let’s have a look at some of the best known options: LastPass, Dashlane, Keeper, Bitwarden, NordPass and 1Password.
