Password Managers

Working across multiple Salesforce Orgs? You may want to explore using a password manager to log you in with the click of a button. I started using a Password Manager just a couple of years ago and it was one of the best productivity decisions I ever made.

Password managers offer greater security and convenience for the use of passwords to access online services. You can create strong passwords with a combination of letters, numbers, and special characters. It takes the pain of setting and remembering passwords off your head.
