Should you use a password manager?

Does using a password manager really make you safer?

There always seems to be a lot of mixed opinions on password managers, but does it really make your information safer? I would argue absolutely 110% yes it does.

I get it, password managers can be a right pain, you have to log into something.. Sometimes twice, but the added security of a randomised, longer, more secure password, without duplication is totally worth the extra effort, (almost as much as 2fa).

I recently made the change to switching all of my accounts to 1Password, its been a long and laborious task, it took me several days to remember every account I would need it for and change the password or save it into the manager. Was it worth it? Yes.

I dont think I need to say too much more about why you should use a password manager, the real question is which one should you use?

There isnt really a correct answer for this: everyone has their own preferences when it comes to a password manager. A lot of password managers offer free trials, so it would be worth trying a few out and seeing which you prefer.

Here are some options:

1Password – https://1password.com/

BitWarden – https://bitwarden.com/
