What is a Password Manager?
As we know, most people will not only recycle their passwords across numerous websites but use weak or easy-to-guess passwords. After all, how are you expected to create secure, one-of-a-kind passwords for every website you visit?
This is where a password manager steps in. As the purpose of a password manager is to safely store online credentials, from your username and password, to multi-factor authentication (MFA) codes and credit card details. This helps you log in to any account automatically and generate strong and unique passwords. A master password is used to lock down an encrypted vault where these passwords are kept.

Are Password Managers Safe?
Reliable password managers are very hard to hack.
Strong encryption, like the industry-standard security used by the US government to protect its sensitive data, is used to protect many password managers. Acting as a powerful deterrent to online criminals.
Do Password Managers Generate Strong Passwords?
Password managers create passwords that are complicated and one-of-a-kind, making them harder to crack. For each login, it is recommended to use a unique, randomly generated password to prevent cybercriminals from accessing your data.
You can create a new password using a password generator without having to remember it yourself, and you can make it as long and varied as you wish.
