Password Management Software
We know that cyber hygiene means using ‘easy to remember’ but complex passwords and changing these often. Still, the most popular passwords on the web are ‘123456’ and ‘password’. The problem is that we, humans cannot remember hundreds of passwords, so a good alternative is to use a password manager to keep track of it all. We give you in this blog some examples so you can chose from these and benefit from our research
LastPass is one of the most well used and well-known password managers in the market. It works on almost every platform and device available. The downside is its mixed security track record. LastPass has had a number of high-profile, critical bugs, as well as some data breaches. Overall though, LastPass remains a good option for those on a tight budget.
Like LastPass, it's worth checking out, featuring one-click password generation, world-class security, breathless ease of use and ability to store notes for future reference.
It’s not just a Windows desktop program either; there are browser plugins and mobile versions. Like LastPass there's a premium version of Dashlane that includes unlimited sharing and syncing.
Dashlane Premium costs £30 per year. However, if you prefer to keep the cash, the free version features all the essentials: you get the core password manager, autofill and digital wallet features.
KeePass is a well-known Windows desktop password manager but it’s also available for macOS and Linux. KeePass stores the usernames and passwords offline on the user’s device in an encrypted file. The password manager supports the import and export of credentials in the form of different files (XML, CSV, HTML, etc.) KeePass supports common password manager features such as form autofill, two factors authentication, etc. It also includes a built-in password generator tool. KeePass is a completely free password manager.
True Key provides an ideal password management experience, offering great security at a minimal price.
True Key stands out with their many authentication methods. Most password managers only offer one option for two-factor authentication. With True Key, you can utilize biometrics such as fingerprint and facial recognition as featured options in their multi-factor authentication suite. Users can select from factors such as their face, fingerprint, trusted device or a master password to log in to their True Key application.
Unfortunately, this password manager has no auto form filling, nor does it allow secure password sharing or automatic changing, showing that perfection doesn’t exist.
On the positive side, if you have any trouble, True Key support is one of the few in the industry that has a service line and is available 24/7.
5. Keeper Security:
It’s one of the most scalable password managers on the market.
This password manager uses two-factor authentication and secure file storage to keep you protected. It also provides practical features that users will greatly appreciate. These include version history — which can
restore previous versions of your records as needed in case something goes wrong — and emergency password access for 5 different contacts.
Keeper offers more flexibility than competitors regarding what data you can store. For example: Custom fields allow you to keep passport information, driver’s license numbers, and other important records in the
app (something not featured in other applications.
