A while ago, I moved to using a password manager, OnePassword, on my computers, iPad, and phone. It is one of those things that I have forgotten how challenging remembering passwords was or how they were inaccessible or how they lived on different lists scattered around my life. Many things fall in the category of I-just-can’t-remember-how-I-did-it-before, but a password manager (paired with dropbox) is one of those backbone things for me.
I can get to my passwords anywhere, I can create much more secure ones now that they are accessible, and I feel so much more secure now that they are on a very encrypted database rather than pieces of paper, Word files, or spreadsheets.
I just don’t know how I managed before!
