With nine personal and work email accounts and hundreds of websites that require me to log in during a given week, I had a tendency to either forget my password or use the same password for a majority of websites. In doing so, I wasted plenty of time resetting my password and I also made it more likely that if my password was ever stolen that people could access everything from my email to online banking.
- If you don’t use the autofill feature on a log in, the bar will remain across the top of the browser until you close it. It should be able to sense that you’ve already logged in and close on its own.
- Occasionally the autofill is delayed slightly if you don’t have a fast connection. They should focus on optimizing the product even on a slow connection.
Download and install now! Not having to remember a 12-digit alphanumeric with special character password for every site I use makes things 100 times easier on me and is also more secure for my personal information. You can’t beat the free price tag for a majority of the features and even if you need the more advanced options one dollar a month is within most anyone’s budget.
