Why you should never save passwords on your web browser

Passwords are known to be the bane of many users’ existence, because they’re one of the only ways we have to secure our accounts.
But these accounts are frequently compromised.


When you allow a web browser like Chrome, Firefox or Safari to store passwords, you’re putting your network security at risk.

How easy it is to view passwords in modern web browsers, is a very good reason why you should never allow a web browser to remember your passwords

On Linux, Chrome browser will allow users to view saved logins, even without requiring a user password.

Although on Windows and mac OS, a user password is required.

Firefox, on the other hand, gives instant access to those passwords, without authentication, regardless of platform (unless a master password is set).

Like Chrome, Safari at least hides passwords behind a user’s password. The difference between Firefox and Safari is the password isn’t optional in Apple’s browser.

This means regardless of environments or browser types, those saved logins are there, for anyone to view.

 

How easy it is to view saved passwords?

  • On either the Windows 10 or mac OS platforms you will be prompted for a user password in order to access saved passwords in Chrome.
  • Linux, on the other hand, it gives the user instant access, without prompting for authentication.
  • Firefox will give you access to those passwords without authentication, regardless of platform.

However, there are plenty of tools available (such as iSumsoft Windows Password Refixer), which make it possible for a user to reset a Windows password and get around this hurdle.

Even on the Windows and macOS operating systems, there are ways around the password prompt by Inspecting Element window of a browser, you can edit the code of a page in such a way that it will un-hash a user password.

 

How to save yourself from these security risk?

 

Don’t allow your browser to save your passwords. None of them.
If you do, those passwords are vulnerable.
An access to your computer either (remotely or physically) opens up these vulnerabilities.

Unless you use Safari or the Master Password feature in Firefox, those passwords are available for anyone to see.

If you must store password on the browser, make use of a password manager.
By doing so, the likelihood of someone viewing your passwords is considerably lower.
It’s not perfect, but it’s far better than handing over the security of your passwords to a web browser.

“Better safe, than sorry,” Cheers.

How to relieve stress at work

TIP 1:

Plan your tasks ahead of time

Being organized with your time means less rushing in the morning to avoid being late and rushing to get out at the end of the day.


TIP 2:

Create your comfort

Do what you can to ensure that you’re working from a quite, comfortable and soothing workspace.


TIP 3:

Know your deliverables

If you find yourself falling into the trap of never knowing if what you’re doing is enough, it may help to have a talk with your supervisor and go over expectations, and strategies for meeting them. This can relieve stress for both of you.

ITEX chosen for CBN’s PTSP initiative

Newly licensed Payment Terminal Service Providers (PTSPs) and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) are working assiduously to mitigate the infrastructure bottlenecks that threaten the smooth take-off of government’s proposed ‘Cashless Nigeria Project’.

This is even as the CBN steps us engagements sessions with stakeholders to create buy-in and ensure maximum public awareness. Firstly, PTSPs have disclosed plans to deploy 150, 000 Point of Sale (PoS) terminal in Nigeria by the end of 2012. This, they say would enable Nigerians conduct cashless transactions in the country and around the world.

In a clear indication of the CBN’s optimism about the prospects and advantages of moving the economy into cashless mode, the apex bank licensed six PTSPs with the singular mandate to deploy and manage PoS terminals in Nigeria. The six successful firms are ITEX, Paymaster, Etop, Citiserve, ValuCard and EasyFuel. CBN licensed only these firms, to enable the PTSPs build scale and maximise efficiency. These six firms, according to industry watchers are tested and trusted e-payment firms that provide e-business infrastructure with the objective of establishing and running a secure, reliable and scalable network.
