How to Securely Share Passwords with Your Team

Nowadays, due to the COVID pandemic, the majority of companies give their employees the freedom to work remotely. To make remote work as productive as in-office work was before, both companies and employees should consider what tools or services they need to work efficiently and communicate with each other better.

 

Lots of teams may use one login for a particular service, website, or even admin panel. It is a fairly common practice. Since shared passwords may be the key to your organization’s sensitive data, you should not neglect their security. Thus, reliable password managers with a secure data sharing feature become a must-have.

 

Keep reading and figure out how to securely share passwords from the company accounts, corporation email, version control systems, and whatnot.

Why avoid sending passwords via messengers or email

Most likely, you used to send passwords to your teammates without any encryption or signature protection. Someone even provides the name of the service, login, and password in the same message. It looks like: “Hey, here are credentials of the site's admin panel. Login:... Password:...”

In doing so, you assist attackers in stealing your data. If any third parties intercept your or your colleagues’ internet traffic, they can easily access the password and use it for their advantage. Please, don’t do that again.

Of course, you can delete or edit the password as soon as your teammate copies it, but that provides no guarantees - an attacker can intercept the password when it comes across the internet.

To avoid password breaches and unexpected data leaks, we highly recommend you to use top-notch password managers with a reliable data sharing feature.
