Changing your password every so often is useless

We teach you to change your passwords saving a lot of time.

Passwords are the piece that protects our data from eyes outside the Internet, an essential piece to maintain some privacy in all the services we use day after day after day. So it is important that these passwords are secure, and one method of protecting our online accounts is to change our password often.

This is usually boring in several ways: we have to change the passwords for each website we use, remember new passwords, try not to repeat passwords between services or over time and password managers can make this less complicated, easier to do from time to time.

Luckily, some password managers allow us change our passwords automatically, in addition to registering the new password in the manager itself so that we can access it. Today we are talking about two services that are capable of changing passwords for us, although they may not work on all web pages.
