    Contact us if you need help with password management.

    A friend of mine expressed his concern on the amount of passwords that we all have to manage today. There are bank passwords in relation to internet banking, mobile money, work emails, personal emails, subscription websites,online learning, social media accounts which are like five per person etc. So how do you ensure that you do not replicate the same password across all accounts?
