If I were to ask you for your own ‘tech torture’ examples – those things which really grind our gears when it comes to gadgets and gizmos – I’m sure you could come up with dozens: always putting a USB stick in upside down on the first try, software updates at inconvenient times, even the Wi-Fi dropping out when you really didn’t want it to.
But on top of all those examples, the number one headache I’m sure we can all agree on – being told you’ve entered the wrong password.
I’m sorry if this is making you clench your fists in frustration. You’re not alone, though – apparently one in six of us forget a password at least once a week; how are we supposed to remember which password we’ve used for each site? And what’s worse, because there seems to be a major hacking story in the news every week, we keep being asked to change our passwords to something new, so what started off as a memorable password now has all sorts of numbers, capital letters and symbols attached to it.
Well, there’s a solution.
Get yourself a Password Manager.
