Importance of a Password Manager

Episode Notes

In today's world, it's important to keep your personal and financial information secure.  Today, Amy Walls of Thimbleberry Financial explains what a password manager app/website is, what the benefits are, and why it's so important to use one.  And we aren't talking about a password-protected Excel file, or a little booklet on your desk with everything written down!

Unlike a password YOU come up with, these password managers generate their own secure, unique passwords.  A random series of letters, numbers, and symbols is much harder to hack than your pet's name!   Also, they often require multi-factor authentication, an added level of security.  You can choose which passwords to share with friends and family, and cut off access to a specific device if you lose that device.  And they often have an "Emergency Access" feature, where if something were to happen to you, you can designate a contact to have access to your information.

Amy and her team use a password manager for the extremely sensitive data they work with, and they encourage their clients to do the same.
