Nowadays it is not surprising to find that an average person owns multiple accounts on different websites like Gmail, Yahoo, Facebook, MSNBC, Microsoft and Twitter. These are large websites that many people are a part of, but it does not stop here. Most probably, you are also an owner of personal online accounts at Verizon, AT and T, Amazon, Walmart, Expedia, Tripadvisor, CitiBank, HSBC, Macy, Comcast, American Airlines, Apple, Costco, Starbucks and hundreds of other accounts for paying online bills.
It is important to note that we are not talking about built-in Password Managers found on web browsers like Firefox, Internet Explorer and Chrome. These are basic password managers which lack a lot of essential features needed to protect your online account. Let’s look at the weaknesses of these browser-based password managers:
– They can’t encrypt your password (except Firefox), meaning that anybody who accesses your computer can view them.
– They store your password on your computer or browser, posing a risk of being found by anyone who uses your computer.
– They can’t generate random pass codes also known as one-time passwords or disposable passwords.
– They can’t protect your password outside of the browser or computer in which they are activated.
– They don’t have an option to store your encrypted password in a secure cloud server.
– They are not effective against cookie hijacking malware.
– They don’t work on cross platforms and can’t sync with different devices.
