Your Just-in-case Backup Plan

SAVE A TYPED LIST TO THE CLOUD

If you have your pass­words listed in a Mi­crosoft Word or Ex­cel file on your com­puter, move it onto an en­crypted cloud-based stor­age pro­gram like icloud.com or onedrive. com. You’ll just need to re­mem­ber the log-on in­for­ma­tion you use for that cloud ser­vice. Or you can print it out and store the list some­where se­cret, away from your com­puter.

USE A PASSWORDMANAGER APP

There are new apps that can store your pass­words, while oth­ers cre­ate unique ones for you. Ei­ther way, they’ll au­to­mat­i­cally be en­tered when you log on.
