With the number of data breaches on the rise, it’s astonishing that people still continue to hold on to poor password habits.
According to a Harris Poll, less than a quarter of those surveyed said that they use a password manager. Instead, many people use the same easy-to-guess credentials on multiple sites. That is a recipe for disaster!
How can I protect myself?
It’s simple — adopt a password manager.
RoboForm Password Manager organizes and encrypts your data, securing your online presence and making your experience less stressful. There’s no need to continue with insecure methods of tracking such as physical password books, sticky notes, or spreadsheets, and there’s significantly less risk of losing your passwords to hackers (and overly curious pups!). RoboForm securely stores all of your passwords and other important data such as PINS or license keys.
Are your passwords strong?
Creating new passwords has always been tricky and frustrating. In fact, 65% of Harris Poll respondents said they reuse the same password for multiple accounts; a recipe for disaster.
It simply takes a single site to be breached, your password exposed, and attackers to use that information to access any of your other online accounts that use the same information.
RoboForm‘s password generator generates random, strong, and unique passwords for all of your online accounts. The passwords include combinations of numbers, uppercase and lowercase letters, and special characters. These combinations can be adjusted to fit different sites’ unique password requirements.
You can do more
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) significantly decreases the chance of someone gaining unauthorized access to your account. RoboForm supports 2FA via time-based one-time password (TOTP) apps such as Google Authenticator, Authy, and Microsoft Authenticator.
It also uses AES-256 bit encryption with PBKDF2 SHA256 to protect against the dictionary, brute force, and other attacks. The RoboForm Security Center audits your passwords, evaluates their strength, and produces a Security Score. This feature lets you evaluate the strength of individual passwords and ensure that duplications do not occur across various sites.
Think before you share
The vast majority of Americans admit to sharing passwords without protection; an extremely risky move given that eight in ten hacking-related breaches leveraged stolen or weak passwords.
Rather than jotting your password down on a piece of paper or texting it to a family member or coworker, with RoboForm you can share without the risk of exposing sensitive data. You can even use the Emergency Access feature to grant trusted contacts access to your data in the event of an emergency.
Stop the excuses
Password Managers are tools developed specifically for making your digital life easier. RoboForm’s features such as One-Click Logins and on-page AutoFill are significantly more convenient and secure than manually entering your data into sites.
RoboForm is supported on multiple platforms and all major browsers, so you have access to your data anytime, anywhere. Your data is synced across devices and browsers, so it’s always up-to-date, something that can’t be said for your browser’s built-in password manager.
The RoboForm desktop and mobile app even provide offline data access. Unlike spreadsheets, sticky notes, and password books, the organization is a breeze with easy-to-manage folders, pinning, and powerful search functionality. No stress, no mess.
