Most password managers can even keep track of your answers to security questions, and generate random passwords for you as well – saving you time.
Defend against hackers and account crackers with 2‑Step Verification
2-Step Verification helps to prevent anyone who should not have access to your account by requiring a secondary factor on top of the username and password to log in.
With Google for example, this can be a six-digit code generated from Google Authenticator app or a prompt in your Google app to accept the login from a trusted device.
What about Phishing?
Phishing is the fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers.
For protection against phishing, you can use a physical Security Key that inserts into the USB port of your computer, connecting to your mobile device using NFC (Near Field Communication) or Bluetooth.
