With every new system we use and online account we create, we need to add another password to our ever-growing list. However, memorizing all these passwords is challenging and can lead to password fatigue. Single sign-on can be the solution to this problem.
Hackers may have found an effective way to track users using a web browser or password manager’s password autofill feature. Here’s how they do it and what you can do to protect yourself.
Why password autofill is so dangerous
Modern web browsers and password managers have a feature that enables usernames and passwords to be automatically entered into a web form.
The average business can have well over a thousand user accounts spread over many different online platforms and services. Securely managing all of these logins can get difficult, especially since users are usually left to handle different complex passwords.
Web browsers come with features to improve user experience. One of the most popular ones is auto-fill passwords. These are designed for users to store and automatically use their account credentials to access websites and other applications. While auto-fill passwords are convenient, they come with security risks.
An average business uses over a thousand cloud services. Even if small businesses use just a few dozen apps, securely managing account logins is still a huge hurdle for both users and administrators. Single sign-on (SSO) is an excellent solution to this issue, so let’s dive into how it works.
iOS 12 brings a significant performance boost to both the previous and the latest iterations of Apple mobile devices, but that’s not all it has to offer. It also has an array of new and improved security and privacy features that you can tweak to better protect your iPhone or iPad and the data it contains.
Advertisements and “helpful” suggestions based on your internet browsing habits can be troubling. But what’s even more alarming is that hackers have found another way of tracking you via seemingly harmless autocomplete passwords. Here’s what you need to know.
No matter how valuable your cloud subscriptions are, each new set of login credentials users are forced to create and memorize adds another level of inefficiency. With Single Sign-On (SSO), you can create one user profile that logs you into all your online accounts.
Businesses rarely address cybersecurity in their company policies. With cybercrimes becoming more prevalent, it's important you inform staff about the threats they could be exposed to. Make sure your business and employees are safe with these security policies.
Earlier this year, news broke that a malware strain named VPNFilter was infecting hundreds of thousands of devices. If you didn’t act then, now’s the time. Security experts have updated their threat assessment and its much worse than they originally thought.
