Password Managers

Main Content

Password Managers are applications or websites that will store your passwords for you. They encrypt the information, and you use a single master password to access all of your other passwords. You should have a different password for every website, so a password manager helps you keep track of all these passwords, and makes it so you only have to remember the one master password.
