Proactive Prevention: FileHippo says SpeedyPassword Makes Data Security Easy
Be proactive about prevention. This is the key message from a recent review of SpeedyPassword by technology writer Arianna Gael of FileHippo’s TechBeat News – and we couldn’t agree more! According to the article, a report from the Identity Theft Resource Center shows that over 5,000 data breaches have occurred in the past decade. That means a stunning 800 million personal records and accounts have been compromised. So how can we avoid being just another number in this scary statistic?
Gael points out that the first step is to stop thinking that a password like “Password1” is strong enough to protect your online accounts. As we’ve discussed in previous articles, using strong, unique passwords for each of your online profiles is the best way to stay secure.
“The only protection you have right now is to secure your accounts as much as you possible can,” writes Gael. We are pleased that she includes the SpeedyPassword password manager as such an example of an effective online security tool. As she discusses in the article, we have a free password generator tool as part of the password manager program, that can create uniquely safe passwords for you – and we’ll manage them. All you need to do is remember one strong Master Password.
