We’re all about efficiency and automation, and this is one of the easiest tips to implement as a business owner. There’s a high probability that you have many accounts for email, apps, web tools, etc. that you use to run your business. Logging into each one of these takes time. 15-20 seconds if you type everything right, a minute every time you make a password typo.
Fear not though! You can get back minutes each day and hours each month by using a password manager across your devices. Even better, you can use Touch ID or the equivalent to login on devices that allow that. Password Managers like LastPass, KeePass, 1Password, and Keeper Password Manager offer secure password storage for every one of your accounts.
Most of these password managers have browser extensions and apps so that it automatically saves your credentials when you login, or you can create new credentials on the fly. The real time savings come into play with the autofill features though. LastPass for example will automatically populate your username and password in their respective fields so you don’t have to type anything yourself! That’s a lot of time savings!
Some other additional benefits include:
- Secure password generation
- No need to remember passwords so you can securely use a different password for each site or app
- Takes minutes to set up
- Easy to sync across devices
- Available for Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, etc.
Don’t forget about Touch ID!
If you use an iPhone or a device that has some sort of touch authentication, it’s a great feature to use. Many apps will let you login with your touch authentication instead of typing in a password every time. Typing on mobile is usually slower for people than typing on a computer keyboard so this is a huge benefit.
