Passwords waste your time, but you can change that. Here’s how.

A combination of your birthday, your spouse’s name, and the city you live in. Your favorite sports team, your birth year and your pet’s name. Maybe the lyrics of your favorite song.

We all struggle to come up with strong, unique passwords we won’t forget because we’d like our private conversations, photos and card details to be safe, but we’d also like to have access to them anytime.

Passwords stress us out

However, good passwords aren’t meant to be convenient. They’re designed to be long and complex. That’s why typing them 20 times a day, resetting them and coming up with new variants can be extremely tiring and time-consuming. In fact, this type of frustration even has a name: it’s called password fatigue and it’s not affecting just you -- it’s affecting everybody, including cybersecurity experts.

Passwords eat up our time

According to studies, people are wasting more than 12 hours each year just by having to deal with passwords. That means half a day every year, or five days every 10 years. And it’s not just your personal time on the line; everybody’s losing at this game because, on average, password fatigue costs companies $480 for productivity per employee each year. However, the worst part is that password fatigue prompts people to look for shortcuts, which defeats the core purpose of stronger passwords, by making them less secure.

But what if you didn’t have to deal with password fatigue at all? What if you took back that half a day lost every year and actually used it for something useful or fun? What if you didn’t have to compromise on security or privacy? Meet Bitdefender Password Manager. Bitdefender Password Manager isn’t just a multi-platform service that helps you store and organize all your online passwords, it’s also a tool that saves you time. Here’s how:

It types your password for you, every time. Maybe you type fast, maybe you type slow. Maybe you need a moment to remember your password, and maybe you have to log in to multiple accounts daily. Bitdefender Password Manager helps you deal with all those problems by auto-filling user sign-in information and passwords. The algorithms can prefill credentials on visited websites, saving you precious time. Additionally, it’s also a good defense against phishing sites because it won’t fill in your details if you’re trying to log in on a site you haven’t visited before.

It chooses the best password for you instantly. Normally, choosing a strong password can be a hassle, and in the end, you still have to memorize it. Bitdefender Password Manager generates a secure, complex and unique password for every new account, in a single click, and it stores them securely. So, forget about reusing passwords don’t worry about having to remember them.

It helps you hop from one device to another in a second. Most people use multiple devices and platforms. For example, maybe you use a Windows laptop or PC with Chrome as a browser but an iPhone as your phone. Generally, if you saved your password on one device, you would not be able to access it on another device. But Bitdefender Password Manager solves that problem. It supports a multitude of web browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge). Once saved, you can access your passwords from a PC, a Mac, or a mobile device running Android with the help of a single Master Password. With “Offline mode” – a feature that lets you access your passwords when an internet connection is out of reach - password management could not get any easier!

It fills in your contact data and payment methods for you. A big hassle when shopping online is constantly filling in your contact data and card details when you want to buy something. Password Manager can store multiple identities and automatically fill out your details in web forms before making a purchase. Quick, easy, and secure! All identities are encrypted locally on the user’s computer or mobile phone so no one but you has access to this sensitive data.

It helps you replace exposed passwords in a heartbeat. Has your data been leaked? Rest assured you will know if it has, and you’ll have the chance to react. Password Manager constantly monitors breaches and issues alerts when personal information is exposed. You’ll then have the chance to replace the exposed password with a new randomly generated one.
