Password Managers are always recommended to help make strong password use automatic and reasonable. While there is some level of risk associated with storing passwords on a third-party password manager, the advantages outweigh this risk

Password manager advantages:

  • Remember one strong password, use strong unique passwords everywhere else.
  • Strong passwords are randomly generated, and don’t need to be remembered.
  • Strong authentication (such as 2-Factor Authentication) can be required for password managers and should definitely be utilized. 
  • Sharing may be enabled in some password managers, making it safer to share secrets with a defined group.
  • Many password managers support organizational management, so good policies can be enforced centrally.

Examples of password managers

  • LastPass 
  • 1Password
  • DashLane

Important: ALWAYS secure your password manager master password with multi-factor authentication!
