Passwords are important - Duh. They are one of the most important aspects of keeping your information secure. Whether personalized or randomized, they are something unique to you, and should not be easily guessed. The key to a great password is being random. You want something random and made up of all sorts of numbers, letters and symbols. Generally, the longer, the better. I personally recommend the site RandomKeygen.com, which allows you to generate random passwords and key generators. If you want to take extra precautions, you select to not have the password generated over the internet (on your device). This service that is free, allows for 256-bit keys and other keys as well including 500-bit keys. Just go to the page and it will generate the password and each time you refresh a new password will appear allowing for a very secure password. Another good service is https://passwordsgenerator.net/ which performs similarly to RandomKeygen.com.I also recommend LastPass. They have a Chrome extension if you use Chrome. This service allows you to have one master password for LastPass, then it does the rest. It can randomize passwords and allow you to keep valuable information secure. You can even back up sensitive documents as well including licenses for software.This service is great and free, but with the option to upgrade to Premium where you can get advanced multi-factor authentication or manage family passwords as wellI recommend this service to anyone that wants a secure service that manages passwords and for storing sensitive information. Disclaimer I am not affiliated or sponsored by LastPass. I am only recommending their service since I find it helpful/useful in my day-to-day life.If you want a secure password, check out those two services. Both are great for cyber security in an age of hackers and cybercrime.
