You travel to a website, and before you can get too far into discovering its wonderful content, it requires you to set up an account, complete with a username and password. The experts say it’s a good practice to use a different password for each website, so you try to come up with something unique yet again. Before long you have many, many logins for your system. But how do you keep them all safe?
There are several ways you can keep your online login information safe. You can just resolve to use a strong password, but with a different password for every site, that can become difficult. Changing your password often works well, too, but again it can be hard to keep coming up with different passwords unless you use some type of password generator. One way to solve this is to use an app that allows you to access everything with just one password. You can also use two-factor authorization, but it takes more than a few seconds to set it up. Additionally, there is multi-factor authentication, that includes voice ID, facial recognition, iris recognition, and finger scanning.
