Best Password Manager? LastPass vs Dashlane vs KeePass

Did you know up to 30% of all help desk volume can be traced back to password problems? So much time is wasted remembering and resetting passwords. In addition to being more productive, you could also keep your data more secure by using a password manager. With credit card fraud everywhere and security hacks around every corner, you’ll be glad you’ve got a password manager.

What does a Password Manager do?

A password manager stores all of your account information for website logins including your username and password. This keeps you from having to write them down and risking someone seeing them and hacking into your accounts. All you have to do is remember one strong password to keep your password vault safe and secure. Once you login to your vault, you have access to all of your logins.

What are Form Fillers?

Password managers can also store other information for bank accounts, debit/credit cards, driver’s license, contacts, addresses and more. That way when you’re making a purchase online or filling out a form, all you have to do is click your form fill button and all the boxes will be filled out with your information. However, not all password managers have this form fill option.

What is Multi-Factor Authentication?

Multi-factor authentication is a form of security that requires more than one form of authentication for you to access an account. For example, most logins require a password, this is one form of authentication. However, you can set some logins to require two forms of authentication. For example, the second form could be a code sent to your smartphone or a number you look up on a smartphone app. Multi-factor authentication includes your account password and a code that changes every 30 seconds or so. This increases the level of security for your account.
