Getting Comfortable With The Basics

LastPass Free Password Manager

Stop using the same password for all sites – Now you can finally use long, complex, different passwords for each site and no longer need to worry about forgetting them.

You can stop storing passwords in the browser's password manager – Browser password managers are not only non-portable across computers, but it is also a major security risk.
