Why You Need a Password Manager

If you’re not using a password manager, your passwords, accounts, and data are vulnerable. Do your passwords contain the names of your pet, spouse, or kids? What about phone numbers, dates, travel destinations, sports, or hobbies? Hackers understand how people create passwords and have powerful tools for cracking them. If you’re reusing passwords, you’re at high risk of multiple accounts being breached in a credential stuffing attack. Your passwords need to be unique enough to not be in password dictionaries, which contain billions of passwords. They also need to be strong enough to avoid being brute-forced by devices that can guess millions of passwords per second. If you’re relying on memory, reusing passwords, or storing them insecurely, your passwords are more vulnerable than you think. 80% of data breaches stem from stolen credentials, which demonstrates the extent of this problem. The answer to these problems is creating strong passwords and storing them in a reputable password manager (e.g. KeePass, Bitwarden).
