Bidding Adieu to TECHSHOW

Last month I highlighted the ever-popular “60 in 60” tips, websites, gadgets, and resources from the 2018 ABA TECHSHOW as well as some great advice from security experts. Before we say goodbye to 2018 entirely and turn our thoughts to 2019, I wanted to share some of the other stories I curated from this conference:

Best Password Generators for the New Year

A reader recently recommended I revisit the subject of random password generators, many of which also log passwords for us.  Everyone seems to know about LastPass, but are there any other options?

Luckily, TechRadar and PC Magazine have done the work for us.  LastPass topped both lists for “best password generator of 2017,” followed by DashLane.  Also worth your consideration:

Which is the best?

It depends on what you want the password generator to do.  For example, RoboForm also serves as a digital wallet and form filler – helping you securely complete online forms.  If your top priority is free, look at KeePass, but remember the features are limited.  For a side-by-side comparison of cost and what each option offers, see the PC Magazine post.  Once you’ve narrowed your choices down, check out TechRadar, which has more in-depth reviews.
