The Awesome Benefits of a Password Management Program.

password managementIt seems that more and more, I’m getting a notification from some company I have an account with or shop from that my password has been compromised and I need to change it immediately. Chances are, this has happened to you, too. If hackers can target high profile corporations, the ones who can afford the best internet security available such as Target, Netflix, Amazon, eBay, PayPal and banks, then your information is not safe.
One website could give someone access to all your accounts. They only need your email address, username and password and they can reset everything.
Most of us try to use same passwords all the time and reuse them on different websites. Often they are weak or simple. With so many sites requiring passwords, how is it possible to remember so many? How are we supposed to use unique passwords on all the websites we use? The solution is a password manager.

How It Works
It’s easier than you’d think, since you’d only have to remember ONE master password. The password manager does the rest of the work for you. It safely stores your information for all the websites you use and logs you in automatically. The manager encrypts your password database and you only need that one password to memorize in order to access everything, thus not only making your life safer, but simpler.

Why Browser Based Passwords Are Dangerous
Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and others have integrated password managers. Each browser’s built-in password manager can’t compete with dedicated password managers. Chrome and Internet Explorer store your passwords on your computer in an unencrypted form. Anyone could access the password files on your computer and view them, unless you encrypt your computer’s hard drive. 

How Simple It Is
When you use a password manager and need to log in to a website, you will first visit that website normally. Instead of typing your password into the website, you type your master password into the password manager, which automatically fills the appropriate login information into the website. If you’re already logged into your password manager, it will automatically fill the data for you. You don’t have to think about what email address, username, and password you used for the website because your password manager does everything for you.

The Biggest Decision You Need To Make
Your toughest task will be to choose a good, complex master password. That’s it. When it’s this effortless and secure, and there is so much identity theft and hacking, I am shocked how many people are still not using a password manager and falling victim to crimes they could have so easily avoided.

They did a great job in setting up my new laptop. They loaded new software and they moved over all my data and programs from a 12-year-old desktop. I'm thrilled with the new, faster computer and having all my old systems still working!!

I had a hard drive go down on a piece of video equipment. Michael and Computer Corner had me up and running in just a few days (parts had to be ordered). Thank you Computer Corner!

My son owns a computer businness in NC so when we needed someone local, we got a recommendation for Computer Corner from a friend. I am more than pleased. I will recommend them in a heartbeat. They communicated the status of my computer to me by text and the work was done very fast and the turnaround would probably have been faster if it hadn't been Thanksgiving week.

Best experience I've had with laptop repairs in Florida. Answered my many questions quickly, informed me of all of my options, and made sure I took home a well tuned machine. All repairs are costly no matter where you go, but at least you get what you pay for with the helpful staff here. As I type this, I'm planning another trip to see them.
