The first thing you need to do is come up with categories that make sense to you and your lifestyle. This is no more than a simple filing system. For example, ‘Personal Finance’ is better than ‘My Group #13’.
After you’re done with that, follow these simple steps:
Load your password manager app onto your phone, tablet, or laptop. Read the FAQs if you get stuck! You want to sync the contents of your manager across all devices.
Make sure it works. Test it on a few top sites. If you have the time, you can (and should) test each account as you set it up to lower the chance of errors.
Back it up to the Cloud, another USB stick, a CD, or external hard drive. Back it up periodically, too, just as you should with all data. But remember, this info is mission critical.
Erase all other traces of your passwords from files, USB sticks, and wherever else you may have stored them. Make sure to get rid of the sticky notes and slips of paper, too.
AS ALWAYS, KNOW AND FOLLOW POLICY CONCERNING PASSWORDS AND PASSWORD MANAGEMENT AT WORK AND WHEN ACCESSING COMPANY RESOURCES.
