Having a hard time remembering all your passwords?

All passwords should be unique and complex, but keeping track of dozens of them can be challenging to say the least.

That’s where a password manager can help.

A password manager is an application that safely stores and creates complex, unique passwords for your convenience. There are many available, but UNB recommends Dashlane and LastPass – they’re free and can be used for all types of devices and systems.

Just make sure you protect your password manager with its own, complex password (don’t worry, it will be one of the only ones you need to remember).
