Does anyone here use a password manager, and if so, do you store password to financial websites (CC, bank, etc.) separately? Or do you store those in the PW manager too?
Actually Norton offers a "per-app" utility that will force either a PIN code or a fingerprint match to open many apps. (I don't use it due to compatibility issues)Semi related question: What are people doing with mobile phone app to ensure security? Are you logging out of them after using? I'm talking about ride share apps, Amazon, eBay, Home Depot, etc. Some apps like Target have login requirements before you can open the app, but others there appears to be no way to set a PIN or biometric login requirement before you can open the app.
I was coming here to post my suspicion of this because yesterday I got an email from LastPass saying a suspicious login attempt was detected on my account in Buffalo NY but they blocked it. I used LastPass for like a week quite a while back but then never really set it up much nor used it.
Thanks for the heads up. Just logged in and changed my master password. And also enabled 2-factor auth. I didn't even realize that was even an option.
This right here. It's all you need and free. You can download the stores sites, user and pass to an XML file. Store that on a flash drive or however you want, securely, and you are good to go. You can even password the excel file and then the rar or 7zip folder, lol.i use bitwarden. everything goes in there. unique passwords for everything, and as long and complicated as i can make them.
my master password is also pretty damn strong.
Ditto. Chose KeePass because the database is stored locally. I don't like the idea of putting my passwords at risk on a software provider's server; too obvious a hacking target.I've been using KeePass for years. Pretty simple to use, and database is only stored locally.
