Five programs to protect your passwords

No more logins to remember: these apps create impregnable keywords and store them for you on pc, smartphone and tablet.

To protect your personal data on the Internet, a few simple rules would be enough: use long passwords, consisting of numbers, letters and symbols and, above all, do not use identical or similar passwords between different services. The problem is that you end up with a list of complex and almost impossible to remember keywords.

Here are five services, some free, others paid, which help even the less experienced of web and computer to collect all our access data in one place, allowing us to remember a single password to log in on Facebook, Twitter , Amazon and any other type of digital service.

 

1Password

One of the most reliable services on the Net is that of 1Password. With a clean and accessible interface, this program collects all your passwords (but also credit cards and documents) and protects them with high-level encryption. The system also includes a virtually impregnable keyword generator. And thanks to integration with Mac, Windows, iOS and Android, your saved information always travels with you, allowing you to access accounts with just one click, anytime, anywhere.

Where I can find it: on 1password.com

How much it costs: € 4.50 per month, or € 57 one-time fee

Compatible with: Windows, Mac, Android, iOS

 

LastPass

Similar to 1Password, but with even more intuitive graphics, LastPass saves accounts in one place, generates new complex passwords and remembers them all automatically. It is up to the user to remember only one, the one that allows access to all the others. Basic use is free, but a subscription is required to synchronize data between multiple devices, such as PCs, tablets and smartphones.

Where I can find it: on lastpass.com

How much does it cost: free, or around 11 euros per year for full functions

Compatible with: Windows, Mac, Android, iOS

 

Dashlane

In addition to the functions already described for the other services, Dashlane is able to automatically fill in payment data in major online shopping stores, such as Amazon and eBay, automatically generating a purchase report and saving all receipts one by one. And in the event of a suspected hack, Dashlane automatically changes your password to protect you from intrusion.

Where I find it: on dashlane.com

How much does it cost: free, or 39 euros per year for pro functions

Compatible with: Windows, Mac, Android, iOS

 

KeePass

Unlike all the others, KeePass is a free and open-source project dedicated to slightly more experienced users. Instead of saving all information online, in the cloud, KeePass encrypts it with highly secure encryption keys and stores it on the device itself. And the built-in password generator promises to create impregnable logins.

Where I can find it: on keepass.info

How much does it cost: free

Compatible with: Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android

 

RoboForm

More Spartan in terms of functionality and also of interface, RoboForm still does its duty, saving all the information either on the device or on the cloud, so as to share it even with smartphones and tablets. Warning: the service seems free, but on the tenth use, the payment of the annual subscription is triggered, which is still cheap and advantageous.
