Venturing online can be like an urban safari into the sketchiest, most crime-ridden part of town. The internet is full of scumbags, scalawags and scambots.
That’s why it’s absolutely essential that you use good, strong passwords. And that means you need a good password manager. This is non-debatable. If you do anything at all online — shop, bank or socialize — you need a good password manager. Here at Cult of Mac, we use Dashlane. And in this video, I’ll tell you why.
Dashlane Security Dashboard is a killer feature
As mentioned, you can get ripped off anytime you go online. Just look at this mind-boggling list of scam alerts from the Federal Trade Commission. There’s at least a dozen alerts for new swindles this year, and it’s still early March.
Picking strong passwords is just the start of beefing up your online security. In addition, you need to use a unique passwords for each and every website or service you use. That way, if one of your passwords ends up compromised — and it’s almost guaranteed that at some point that will happen, often through no fault of your own — that password cannot be used to log into anything else.
Here at Cult of Mac, we recommend Dashlane, a full-featured but easy-to-use password manager. One of the reasons we like Dashlane is its great Security Dashboard, which makes monitoring and managing your online security dead-easy.
