What is a password manager?

When we talk about password managers, we usually mean software that allows you to store and manage your passwords for online accounts, institutions, and services.

Nowadays, a password manageris an important tool that is good to have in your basket of digital tools. They have become extremely popular due to the fact that they are easy to use and very handy – they keep a record of your long passwords, so you don’t have to remember them.

Almost everybody needs a password manager. No matter what type of website you use, from dating apps, to your fitness and nutrition app, to the most endangered – your mobile bank account, stock trading platform or crypto wallet – the website insists on creating a user account and a strong password for it.

Furthermore, many of us no longer have just one main computer that we use to surf the Internet. We usually have several devices in use, and most of us want to access our bank account, for example, from any device – phone or laptop – and from anywhere.

In addition to that, people these days have an ever-increasing number of accounts for different assets, such as:

How important is it to use a password manager?

Whether you like password managers or not, they:

  • help you to organize your credentials and keep track of them
  • take the hassle out of remembering your strong passwords
  • protect you from hackers
  • are able to protect your credentials from being locked for your rightful beneficiaries

Most password managers aim at protecting your passwords from being hacked or forgotten. Almost none of the existing password management tools, though, aim at protecting your digital inheritance from being locked for your rightful beneficiaries.

Basic characteristics and capabilities

The basic characteristics and capabilities that every good password manager should have include the following:

  • full encryption of all data
  • multi-factor authentication
  • the ability to download and upload files
  • sharing with your loved ones
  • 24/7 access from anywhere

Whatever you choose, it should satisfy your personal and family needs.

Why using a password manager is so critical for you and your family

How big is the risk of not using a password manager?

  • Not using a password manager makes your device vulnerable to being infected with viruses and malicious software, which could compromise your passwords.
  • Storing your passwords locally on your computer makes you an easy victim of hacker attacks.
  • Storing your private crypto wallet keys on your hard drive puts you at risk and exposes you to the danger of losing them if the device is broken or stolen. You can lose access to your cryptocurrencies forever.
  • Not having 24/7 access to your password credentials could be crucial in certain situations.
  • Using a spreadsheet – an unencrypted environment – instead of a password manager makes you highly vulnerable to attack.
