Password protection is a critical part of internet security. The problem is that once hackers attack a particular website, they are able to download whole database of clients of particular business in seconds. If your email address is between these emails, you should be aware that there exist a real risk your email and password was compromised as well. Why? It depends on the business and their practices for saving passwords of their clients. The worst case is saving passwords in plain text. They simply save you password as-it-is, so not only hacker, but even an employee, or anyone with temporary access to the database can read your password. Even though knowledge of these 2 pieces of information is not critical, there may be a problem, if you use the same password and email for many services, or (the worst case), for your internet banking services. In that case, the attacker have access to your internet banking as well, possibly even email account, where all your digital identity stays. In another words, attacker with your password and login into email can easily read all the history of your communication – problem is, when your email was used to register a previous company domain names, to pay for webhosting services, or if another person sent you critical documents, that should not be visible by another party. The only solution is to use different passwords for different services and stores, without any relation as well. We all know how hard is to remember all the passwords, so in the next part, we will show you the best passwords managers, that are integrated with internet browsers, so you do not need to remember any passwords.
