    Best Password Utilities for the PC - Managing Passwords


    (Page 2 of 3 )

     

    In order to help you to keep your system secure, we are going to talk about ways to manage your passwords -- without resorting to writing them down and putting them near your computer, which would just destroy the whole point of a password after all. So, we want to make things both relatively safe and relatively easy. The best way to do that is with a password manager.

    For those of you who are not familiar with the idea of a password manager, let's take a brief look at them. A password manager is essentially a piece of software that will store the passwords that you have for various programs. I bet you are wondering how exactly that is different from just using a text document and saving your passwords to a hidden location. Well, a password manager is a little bit different because it not only allows you to simply store the passwords, but also will automatically input them into the websites that you want to use.

    Of course it stands to reason that any piece of software that puts in all of your passwords at once would, without any protection of its own, create more of a problem because it allows access to everything. Well, when it comes to these utilities, you are going to have two options here. While some of the utilities will have their own password for you to use the system, others will rely on you to have the password systems in place on your computer in order to login.

    That having been said, if you really have data that you need to keep secure, you can use both. So, to help you keep your system secure and your sanity safely intact, we are going to take a good look at some of the best password utilities out there for PC users.

    I apologize to my Mac-using readers, but we all know that you have a lot of options on your own, both built-in and as freeware. The PC users just need it more right now. So without any more delay we are going to take a look at some of the utilities that are at your disposal.
