Having a password manager can help you maintain a strong level of security online without having to memorise all your passwords.

But with the many rules that come along with having a strong password such as using a mix of characters and incorporating shorts codes/acronyms, it can be hard to remember the dozens of complicated passwords. 

With a password management tool, you can scrap using sticky notes which can be easily accessible if you work in a shared space. All you need to do is remember one password and you’ll have the key to all your other accounts. 

To set Password Manager in Google, you need to: 

  1. Type in ‘https://passwords.google.com’ in the search bar 
  2. If you’re not already signed into Google, sign in. If you are already signed in, on the start screen, press ‘Get Started’ 
  3. Press the settings icon in the top right corner 
  4. Toggle on the three options: ‘Offer to save passwords’, ‘Auto sign-in‘, and ‘Password alerts 

These settings allow Google to create secure passwords for you and save them automatically so that you don’t need to remember a complex password for each website you make an account for. Additionally, to strengthen your online security, Google will notify you if your passwords are found online – it will then suggest a more secure passwords so that you don’t have to worry about any more leaks.
