Hygiene has always been important but COVID-19 and all the related events of the pandemic have brought it to the forefront. We’re now all well aware of the importance of physical hygiene- hand washing, mask wearing, sanitising and generally keeping things clean. But when it comes to your digital life, hygiene is also really important.
And good digital hygiene won’t just help you keep things safe and make your life a bit less stressful, it can also be better for the planet by helping you save energy and digital storage space.

As well as helping to spare you the annoyance of remembering all your passwords, a password manager is a simple way to improve your digital security by helping you to set strong passwords for every account that you use. When given the option, make sure you enable 2-factor authentication to provide another layer of security.
Setting up a password manager can take some time as you migrate every account across to the new system, but you’ll thank yourself every time you can log in securely with one simple click! Oh and while you’re doing the migration, it’s a good chance to assess which accounts you actually need (and actually need to have your personal information).
Here’s WIRED on what to look for in a password manager
