Dashlane password manager available for free
University IT provides the Dashlane password manager free of charge to all current faculty, staff, and students.
Why use a password manager?
Remembering passwords for numerous applications can be burdensome. A password manager addresses the problem by securely storing your passwords and keeping them synchronized across your phones, tablets, laptops and other devices. If you like, it can further simplify the process by automatically logging you into websites. It also helps you create unique, strong passwords for all of your accounts.
“We encourage the use of password managers, as they simplify your life and are a fast path to safer computing”, said Michael Tran Duff, the university’s chief information security officer.
