Not always safe to save passwords in your web browser

For convenience many of us in the past have ‘saved your password’ in your Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox web browser. While it is convenient it can pose a significant security risk to you. Especially if you are not prone to keep your anti malware and other antivirus programs updated.

It is very important to keep your browser free of unnecessary add-ons and to keep them updated. If you are accessing your website via FTP certainly saving your password on your web browser is a big no no!

Any important passwords should be changed at least once per month.
