You have a ton of options for password managers, but when it comes to your security, you want the best possible tool for the job. The most secure option is to use a password generator and manager. If you want to keep your accounts safe, you need to use a truly random, long, and complex password. And, use a completely different one for each of your accounts. How do you accomplish this? Use a password manager like LastPass. Not only will it save all your passwords for you, but it can also generate random passwords for you. It’s easier to use and set up than you may think.
For more information, I highly, highly recommend you read my tutorial below on how to audit and update your passwords with LastPass for detailed instructions. Remember, the only secure password is the one you can’t remember—and this is the only way to achieve that. Those clever password tricks we used to use just don’t cut it anymore.
Lastly, make sure you turn on two-factor authentication for all sites that support it! It is, by far, one of the best ways to secure your accounts against hackers—even if they get your password, they won’t be able to get access.
