What Is a Password Manager?
A password manager is essentially a system that allows you to store all the passwords to your various user accounts in one convenient and secure location. That location is a digital password vault, which requires a master password—and often additional authentication—to access.
A password manager supports good password hygiene by enabling users to use unique and complex passwords for all their accounts, negating the risks associated with using a weak password or reused passwords without overburdening individuals with the task of memorizing dozens of unique saved passwords. While all password managers (even free password managers) provide this key service, they are not all built the same; some are cloud-based, some are locally stored, and some are web-based password managers with built-in browser extensions.

Do You Think: Password Managers Cost Too Much and They Take Too Much Time!
This is too expensive.
The cost of implementing a password management solution is far less than what it would cost the company to recover from a breach. The average total cost of a data breach caused by compromised or stolen passwords was $4.77 million (IBM, 2020).
This is going to slow people down and get in the way of regular workflows.
It’s true that setup can take some initial investment from employees. But password managers save people an average of 50 hours a year by autofilling passwords and personal information, not to mention the time wasted resetting forgotten passwords. We’re here to help get you up and running without disrupting business as usual. We have a comprehensive Resource Library to make getting started with Dashlane simple for admins and employees.
Our company isn’t a target for a cyberattack.
Many hacks are just attacks of opportunity. A hacker might find an employee’s Netflix password in a data dump on the dark web. If that employee reuses that password at work, suddenly the hacker has access to your company email or other systems.
