“You’re giving me the ‘it’s not you, it’s me’ routine? I invented ‘it’s not you, it’s me.’ Nobody tells me it’s them not me; if it’s anybody, it’s me.”

Stop Using Your Browser's Password Manager.

I know I know—it's just too convenient having those passwords ready to autofill your bank information and tax season only comes around once a year how will we remember it all?!?!?

Hey, you aren't alone—I was there once upon a time as well. The reality is though that times have changed and we need to change. No more built-in-browser password manager!

As Microsoft are always introducing new features and services to keep your business’s data safe online, they are now going to introduce a new update that will give you access to a new and improved password management feature. This new update will allow you to store all your passwords within your browser automatically, giving you a cost-effective way to avoid password-based cyber-attacks.

But it's not as good as it seems, although this new feature is more secure than using the same login details across multiple applications, our advice would be to avoid browser-based password managers in your business.

Why is this?

It's because not only are they not flexible enough but they also don’t give enough control to you, the boss—especially if a staff member were to leave your business. If you use a trusted password manager, such as Keeper, it allows you to remove someone's access to all of their applications or even access their login details, if you need to, just by pushing a button.

You can still benefit from secure encryption, even if you use different browsers on different devices. Having your business use a separate password manager is also a lot more secure, which is really important when you have lots of employees using your applications, all with their own different login information. And to make things a lot easier for you and your employees, the password manager will generate strong passwords for you and will even remember them (encrypted) so you don't have to! Password managers are the best way to have better protection against brute force attacks from Cyber Criminals.

Having a password manager for your business gives you an extra layer of cyber security. If your business doesn't already use one, it's about time you look into getting one. There are many password managers out there and it can be confusing knowing which one would be the best fit for your business. If you would like to know which one we would currently recommend, get in touch and we’ll help you!

Until next time, keep fit and have fun!

(TYYV) The Yada Yada Version:

Microsoft is bringing out a new update that will give you a browser-based password manager feature. However, using a trusted third-party password manager is a lot more secure for you and your business and yada yada yada we can help your business find a password manager that is right for you!
