Managing password chaos!
Nowadays, we find almost everything we need on the internet, from clothes, to groceries and our cabs. Many of us are also working and studying online. The key to unlock any of these online activities is a password.
It’s common knowledge that passwords should be secure but with everything else going on, it’s hard to remember a different secure password for each service you use.
Fortunately, there are 3 possible solutions you can take depending on how easy you want it to be versus the level of security you would like to achieve.
1. Create easy to remember and highly complex passwords
You can do this easily by following 3 steps
a) Think of a long phrase that you would easily remember like “IwillBeHappy@WorkIn2021”
b) Take the first 3 characters of the website or app for which you are creating the password. For example, for Facebook it will be “fac”
c) Voila, you have a complex password which will be different for each site or application. In this example it will be “facIwillBeHappy@WorkIn2021”
2. Use the password saving feature of your web browser with two factor authentications
Most browsers like Chrome, Edge and Safari provide the facility to save your password and fill it in for you when you are at the site. All you have to remember is the password you signed in with to the browser. With this ease you can and should write complex passwords for each site without worrying about how you are going to remember it.
In the recent past, most of the well-known browsers have upped their game and made their password saving service secure, but I would highly recommend using such a service only when you setup two factor authentications for the account you have signed in with. This will ensure that even if someone gets a hold of your account password, all of your other passwords are not compromised.
3. Using password managers
This approach works almost the same as the second point, in that a dedicated Password manager can store passwords for applications, websites and many other documents that you would like to keep safe. They cost in the range of $15 to $50 per year. As per, Nytimes/Wirecutter “1Password” is the best password manager in the market.
In addition to a secure password, for any banking or any financial website or application you should always use two factor authentications. For any help or further information, always feel free to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org
