As we enter a new year, it is time for some good ol’ resolutions. Drink more water, exercise, make your bed every morning, sure. Here at LayerEight, we want your cyber security resolution to be to use a password manager.
Password managers help you generate and store long, unique, and complex passwords for all of your online accounts. You can also store PINs, credit card numbers and CVV codes, answers to security questions, etc. No more using the same password for all your accounts, and no more trying to remember long complex passwords. Password Managers will also save you time since you will never have to go through the painstaking process of resetting a password for a website if you happen to forget it.
Storing all passwords in one place may seem just as risky as using the same password for every account but rest assured: your information will be secured by end-to-end encryption. Beyond that, these services are tested by third-party entities to ensure their safety.
In true New Year fashion, here is a list of the best PAID password managers for 2023 according to LayerEight and pcmag.com:
- Keeper Password Manager & Digital Vault
- Zoho Vault
- LogMeOnce Password Management Suite Ultimate
- Password Boss
- RoboForm Everywhere
Looking for something more affordable? Pcmag.com also listed the best FREE password managers for you:

- WWPass PassHub
- Norton Password Manager

Don’t forget about our good friend Multi-factor Authentication. Along with your password manager, we encourage you to set up a secondary security level when logging in to your password manager. Some of these programs will force you to do so upon set up, but if they don’t, we highly recommend it.
Wishing you, your employees, and your business a successful and data breach-free 2023!
