Wondering why you should use a password manager? The answer is – because you’re at risk. While physical campus security probably crosses your mind most often, online security is also important. Cyber security measures such as using a password manager can help ensure the protection of your personal data. Regardless of your college or university affiliation, password managers like RoboForm are there to protect you.
You’re online every day. Between email, social media, blackboard, bank accounts, and more, that’s a ton of account information to memorize. And when you forget, the password resetting process is frustrating and time consuming. With RoboForm, you only need one master password to access everything! An added bonus – RoboForm’s password generator creates long, random and strong passwords with just one click. We urge you to stop using the same password or variations of the same password for your online accounts as doing so leaves you extremely vulnerable to hackers and identity theft. In addition to security, RoboForm offers convenience by syncing your data across all devices, helping to keep you organized.
Faculty and staff
Students aren’t the only ones who need to increase their cyber awareness. In some cases, you might manage more online accounts than the average student! RoboForm not only stores and protects passwords, it also saves identities for automatic form filling, SafeNotes for sensitive information, bookmarks, and contacts. With just one click, RoboForm logs you into websites within seconds. Say goodbye to remembering or typing usernames and passwords. RoboForm securely houses and provides access to all your data and private information – saving you much needed time for projects, meetings and other obligations.
Yes – even as an alum you should be conscience of your online connection to your alma mater. It’s best to never assume you’re safe from college cyber-attacks simply because you’re no longer enrolled as a student. Recently, the University of Central Florida experienced a major hack – about 63,000 Social Security numbers and names of former and current students and employees were stolen. This is just another reason why we strongly encourage all colleges and universities to utilize RoboForm.
If you happen to be skeptical of password managers, please consider this:
- RoboForm has been around since 1999 and has never experienced a major hack or data breach.
- We never ask you for your master password, nor do we access the personal information you save with RoboForm.
- If someone were to hack into your RoboForm account, everything is encrypted using military-grade AES 256 encryption with additional security options available.
