DIG this week's security tip


You hear it again and again, you need to use strong, unique passwords for each of your online accounts. How do you remember all your passwords when they are lots of characters and each one is different?


Password managers are the answer to that question. A password manager is an online service that stores your passwords in an encrypted environment. Instead of memorizing strong, complex passwords, you just need to remember one master password. Many password managers not only store your existing passwords but also identify existing weak or reused ones.


Password managers also help in the fight against phishing scams. If you click a malicious link for a site you frequently visit, the password manager won’t be fooled. It will detect that the URL is different than the site you usually log into -- regardless of how similar it looks to the original.


Password managers are easy to set up, make it harder for criminals to access your accounts, and are low-cost or free. Give one of the following a try.
