QuickLINK Tech Tip:  Password Managers

Password managers are types of software that often take the form of apps or browser plugins, or they might be included automatically in your browser or computer operating system. With a few clicks, you can generate new, secure passwords that are long, unique, and complex. Password managers automatically store your passwords and can autofill them when you arrive at the site.

We’ve all probably used one password to secure multiple, maybe even all, of our digital accounts. But that’s not safe, and it becomes even more unsafe as time goes on. Here’s what you need to know.

Thank you to SSFS Technology Committee member Chrissy Davis for contributing this tip.
