Unlocking the Puzzle of Managing Multiple Passwords

When it comes to multiple passwords, are you someone akin to the mighty elephant who never forgets, or are you one with the memory of a goldfish?

Here at the Security Intelligence blog, we’ve talked about passwords at length. From recent events that involve mass password leakages to how to improve your existing passwords, we’ve written quite a bit to stress just how important these strings of letters and numbers are and how to make them more secure. But what about keeping track of every single one of them when you’ve got more than you can reliably remember? With an average user juggling up to 10 accounts at once, memorizing each and every password you have can prove to be quite the challenge.

It’s with this e-guide that we strive to help you, the everyday user, against this conundrum that all of us will face sooner or later. Not unlike a set of keys, passwords carry with them quite dire consequences should they fall into the wrong hands. In this document, we provide ways in which to prevent such an occurrence from happening, as well as specific tips and tricks to aid you not only in remembering your passwords better but also in their creation.

We can’t all be elephants, after all. Even us goldfish need to keep their passwords secure.
