Securing Passwords with Password Manager

Password manager is good for you if you have too many different passwords to remember! It’s a cool software that you can use it to keep many different passwords for you, and you just need to remember a master password, which is the password used to access the password manager. Most of the time you can simply install and use this manager on Windows computer and mobile devices without problem.

There are different types of password managers, each got its pros and cons, so you should choose the one that suits your requirement.

If it’s just a stand-alone password manager, normally you just need to install and use the software on your computer or mobile device, all password related data will be stored on same device too, and this is considered pretty secure as long as the computing device is secured properly. The disadvantage is that you don’t have the access to your passwords if you don’t have access to the computing device with password manager installed.

If the access to the password anywhere you go is important, then you can consider the password manager that works on cloud technology that allows you to sync or store the passwords on cloud server which is managed by software vendor. This is also considered as online password manager. In this case your passwords might be compromised if there is security breach on those cloud servers.
