Have you become flooded with usernames and passwords? It might be time to look at Keepsafe as an alternative to your password manager. While using passwords is super important for our online privacy, usernames and passwords can be a real drag to keep track of. Not to mention having to punch in your information every time.
Some people save their passwords so their devices can automatically fill in the information for them. While having passwords automatically populated can save you some serious time, it also presents some security risks if your phone winds up in the wrong hands. If you’re device is lost or stolen, the intruder now has access to all of your accounts and information. No thanks!
So how do you avoid manually typing in your login information every time? A popular method is to download a password manager app to host all of your passwords. Password manager apps have become increasingly popular, giving users the ability to store all their passwords in one place. Generally, these apps are specifically for storing passwords and do not provide the ability to hide photos or documents. These apps are locked and secured by a master password. Once the master password is entered it unlocks the app and opens all of your saved logins.
While there is no doubt that password manager apps are convenient, you have to question how safe it is to store all of your passwords behind one layer of security. After all, one of the biggest pieces of advice to block your phone from hackers is to not use the same password across multiple sites. The reason? Because if a hacker gets ahold of your master password, they also have access to all of your logins using that same password. So why would it make sense to have all of your passwords behind one singular level of security?
While most password manager apps utilize encryption to keep your logins safe, it still creates a risk because these apps are not immune to cyber attacks. The singular master password is still the gatekeeper for all of your logins.
