What is a "Password Manager" and How They Differ

Security, particularly online, is a high priority for everybody. To be secure on the Internet, every user should employ a strong, unique password for each website. Consider—according to this blog, by 2020 the average number of accounts per Internet user will be 207!

While a computer user could keep all the passwords they need in some secret notebook, the best approach is to utilize a software solution. A password manager keeps passwords and other private data, such as credit card information, on a computer or mobile devices. These managers store data in encrypted form, requiring only a single secret key to decipher the database. Password managers maintain the login information of a user's various online accounts and, if desired, auto-enter data into login forms. By using a password manager, a user protects his online accounts with unique passwords for each in case a website with weak security is hacked. Password managers oversee a list of site credentials so a user won't need to remember multiple passwords.

Why do I have to have separate passwords for each site?

In 2014, hackers stole nude photos from the private iCloud account of actress Jennifer Lawrence, posting them on the web for the world to see. In fact, over a hundred celebrities over the past six years have been the victims of cyber attacks, their reputations damaged by the leak of private and sensitive details and their financial data compromised. All too often, hackers gain access to celebrity accounts because the victims used the same password on multiple websites. And celebrities aren't the only targets of hackers. A study commissioned by the U.K.'s Office of Communications (Ofcom) found that 55% of online users employ the same password for all websites. The repeated use of the same password for every website a user visits leads to security vulnerabilities and makes the task of the hacker too easy.
