    Secure your passwords - top 5 password managers in 2020

    • Interresting 1
       (0 reviews)

    A new year, and a new decade, is here and with that you probably have the urge to make new beginnings and start fresh with exciting projects. One suggestion is to take a look at securing yourself online by adding a password manager to avoid getting your accounts stolen as well as reduce the frustration of remembering all passwords. Here are my top suggestion for password managers in 2020.

    Security online is a difficult thing and with limited resources and competence in law enforcement for online crime, you would do well to take some additional steps to protect yourself. One such step is to manage your passwords online. Most people have dozens, if not hundreds, of accounts registered online. Most use the same login and password for all sites, or perhaps they have 3-5 variations that they mix with.

    This of course means that if one site is hacked and your passwords stolen, then all your accounts will be in jeopardy. Having unique passwords for each site is of course much, much more secure and if you have long passwords it's even better. The problem is remembering hundreds of long and complicated passwords, which is pretty much impossible. This is where password managers come in handy.

    Password managers act as a secure vault where you have one master password to rule them all. You get help setting good passwords that are randomly generated and not reused in multiple sites. This vault can then be accessed from any device so you can login with just one master password while still ensuring that all your logins use unique passwords that can not be used on other sites. Protecting your accounts online can be simplified using a password manager and these are my recommendation for 2020.

      Bitwarden is the easiest and safest way to store all of your logins and passwords while conveniently keeping them synced between all of your devices.
      Password theft is a serious problem. The websites and apps that you use are under attack every day. Security breaches occur and your passwords are stolen. When you reuse the same passwords across apps and websites hackers can easily access your email, bank, and other important accounts.
      Security experts recommend that you use a different, randomly generated password for every account that you create. But how do you manage all those passwords? Bitwarden makes it easy for you to create, store, and access your passwords.
      Bitwarden stores all of your logins in an encrypted vault that syncs across all of your devices. Since it's fully encrypted before it ever leaves your device, only you have access to your data. Not even the team at Bitwarden can read your data, even if we wanted to. Your data is sealed with AES-256 bit encryption, salted hashing, and PBKDF2 SHA-256.
      Bitwarden is 100% open source software. The source code for Bitwarden is hosted on GitHub and everyone is free to review, audit, and contribute to the Bitwarden codebase.
