Safe Password Management

For safe password management, a “Password Manager” can be used as long as the following guidelines, which are recommended by UMass Medical School Information Security, are followed:

  • Encrypted
  • Wipes the database clean after 5 failed logon attempts
  • The database is password protected – and this password cannot be written down or stored elsewhere
  • 2 Factor Authentication
  • Recommended that the Password Manager is stored on a desktop or mobile device, and not in the cloud
