[Article] Secure your passwords - top 5 password managers in 2020

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.
