Strong passwords are extremely important to your personal cyber security. The list of accounts and passwords we are required to use is constantly growing. From your bank account to Amazon or Netflix, you have passwords for almost everything you do online.

As security concerns become more prevalent many of these accounts require minimum levels of password strength, and at the very least will inform you when you are using a weak password. Remembering all these complex passwords is very difficult. Especially if you take proper security precautions and use a different password for every account.

With the passwords we use becoming more complex many options have appeared to help you  keep track of the ever increasing list of passwords. Most of the browsers that you use offer the ability to store your passwords for you, and automatically log you in. While some of these are more secure than others, they are not usually the ideal solution from a security perspective.

There is another option, password managers are becoming increasingly popular, and are generally a more secure option. Some charge a monthly fee, but most offer free versions.

Below I have listed a few different password managers. They have free versions, but also offer paid versions with more features.
