A password manager is a software application that helps you store and manage your passwords. They're usually password-protected, so only you can access your passwords.
Why are password managers useful?
Password managers are useful because they help you keep track of all your passwords in one place.
This makes it easier to keep your passwords safe and secure.
They're also useful for managing multiple accounts, such as email, social media, and financial accounts.
There are a number of password managers on the market, but some of the most popular ones are "Last Pass", "Nordpass" and "1 Password".
They all do largely the same thing - helping you store and manage your passwords.
This software is password-protected, so only you can access your passwords.
Last Pass is popular because it's easy to use and it has a lot of features. It also has a password recovery feature, which is useful if you forget your password.
If you're looking for a password manager that is easy to use and has a lot of features, Last Pass is a good option.
The best password managers in 2022 will offer a variety of features, including:
Last Pass calls this last one "Security Challenge".
The different password managers vary in price, but are usually around £50 per year.
