Recently, I was watching a video showing how easy it is for a hacker to create a phishing scheme. It takes, literally a couple of minutes to set up and all the tools are easily acquired.

This video made me realize how vulnerable we all are to any kind of phishing schemes. There are ways to deal with it, such as don’t click on links from messages you are not sure of the source, take a look at the links and see if they are genuine etc. But the best way to deal with this kind of thing is to be proactive and to make sure you manage your passwords.

How does one manage their passwords? It’s quite simple, really. All you have to do is: make them difficult, unique for each website you log into and change them often.

However, we all have a busy life and remembering to do all those pesky things is difficult. No one remembers all the sites they were made to login to, especially when that happened months ago. What’s more – who is going to remember a password that looks like this:
#$hT73sko[;(=@983KaP8&<,
right?

But fear not! We can help you by providing you with a password manager that will make your life easier by not only generation complicated passwords, but also, remembering them all for you, so you don’t have to.
Our MPM (MiKSMedia Password Manager) fills your credentials in automatically, quite often, so that you don’t have to even type them in, which gives you another layer of protection from cyber criminals (but that is a whole new post for another day).
