So many aspects of our daily lives depend on passwords. Social media, buying stuff, banking — basically anything that we care about online is guarded by nothing more than a string of characters.
Unfortunately, people are really, really bad at passwords. Even if you’re not using “123456” or, heaven forbid, “password” as your password, it’s high time you take password security seriously. In 2018, that means using a solid password manager.
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.
Late last year, I switched password managers. I traded in trusty old 1Password for relative newcomer Dashlane, and I haven’t looked back.
Dashlane is a well-designed, fully functional and easy-to-use password manager that tops 1Password in one key respect: a Security Dashboard that makes it dead easy to track your online security and update it as necessary.
