I remember working at a Real Estate office before Peanut was born. There were so many different systems that we had to log into to list a house, market homes, social media, and so much more. We had a huge double-sided list of passwords that were just sitting on top of the desk. Anyone could have walked in and stolen it, and I would have had to reset every one of those passwords. Not to mention anytime we did change a password we would have to update and print the new list off. It was bonkers now that I think about it.
While I love that my browser can save my passwords, it doesn’t help me much is I clear my data or I’m using a public computer. My husband will ask me about a login and I have to go looking for it. Now I can keep all my important passwords, documents, videos, and photos in one place. Keeper Security is a website that has a corresponding browser extension and a smartphone app for iOS and Android users. It is so easy to set up and use. Whenever I need to access my passwords of data I log in with my master password and then I perform a two-step verification (an optional setting for added security. It sends a ping to my Apple Watch to verify my identity with a special code that will appear on my watch. Once I’m logged in I can see the various vaults that I’ve saved. When I log in from my phone I can use Touch Id to jump right into the app. Here are some the passwords I have saved in my Keeper Security. The ones marked in yellow mean that my password isn’t the highest quality. If they were really weak, they would be red. When you’re adding new passwords to the vault you have to ability to “roll the dice” and have Keeper Security create a strong password for you. Then you can save your login information and login URL for future use. (Don’t bother trying that password, I didn’t use it. I just wanted to show you!) Now, whenever my husband asks me for the Amazon or mortgage companies login and can easily pull it up from anywhere. I like knowing that it is encrypted and safe on the Keep Security site or app. No more mass spreadsheets that aren’t secure or notebooks I can’t find with them written in the pages.
