The Credentials Conundrum

Everyone needs a good answer to the question, "How do you manage your passwords?"

If you use the Internet, before long you’ll build up a list of notable destinations and passwords, and it’ll only get longer in the future! Since strong credentials help protect us from criminals and worse, we all need to master the art of managing them well. Many try writing them on paper or keeping them in their head or in spreadsheet, but these methods are insecure and way too much work! The best approach is to use a high-quality password manager app, or different ones for different purposes.

To manage passwords well, we need to do all of the following:

  • store passwords securely
  • organize passwords efficiently
  • change critical passwords on a routine basis
  • use only hard-to-crack passwords
  • use a different password for each destination

If you’ve shopped around, you may have found other password managers to be risky, expensive, complicated, ugly, or all the above. Many entice or require you to create a payment account, then charge you a recurring fee to store your passwords in their cloud server where they “assure” you it’s safe! It may be to some degree, but what you’re actually doing is placing your most-sensitive personal information in the hands of strangers in a place exposed to hackers or bad employees. Courier shuns the Internet by securely saving only locally under your exclusive control. Not to mention it has no “backdoor” — aka a sneaky way around the master password to allow unauthorized persons to view your data!

Also it’s not easy to come up with hard-to-crack passwords. Courier’s password designer makes it easy to create strong passwords with a simple click.

Next comes the easy-to-forget task of changing your most-critical passwords often. Courier includes an optional per-password reminder feature. Its report reminds you when it’s time for a change.

To sum up we all need a way to safely, easily, and affordably organize, store, groom, launch, and regularly change our passwords. These are the challenges Courier is designed to meet — an essential life app that we love to use every day, all day long, at home, work, or play.
