NCSAM: lets start with password managers

Last Pass’s first article to kick off National Cyber Security Awareness Month deals with the password manager. While their article talks about their own product, lets just talk about password managers in general.

The Last Pass article is entitled Owning Your Digital Profile by Setting Up LastPass. What if you don’t have Last Pass?

First, take a look at the password manager that you have decided to use. Why a password manager? According to Lastpass, it is safer to use a password manager like theirs instead of the browser. The article The Eternal Question: Why Can’t I Just Use my Browser? should answer why the browser isn’t a good choice. If you’ve listened to Twit’s Security Now you’ll also understand why this is a bad idea.

The goal here is not to force you away from what you know, but to educate you on why it is a good idea to think about it. I have moved away from the browser and had even paid for Lastpass Premium at one point until I realized that I could have most of the features for free. The premium offerings I wasn’t using, but the faster time for support was nice but I hardly used it. It is a benefit to support the companies, and I plan to do this at some point again.

There are other password managers out there, so search around and decide which one works best for you.

What do you think of password managers? Have you utalized them? Which one do you use and why? Lets discuss!
