RICHMOND, VA (WWBT/WBTV) - Keeping track of your passwords is probably a constant battle. There are bank accounts, Facebook, twitter, and the list continues. 

Kevin Boynton with The Computer Doctor of Richmond says password protection is key to your online safety. He advises not to store passwords in your browser.  If you're hacked -- it's one of the first things cyber crooks look for. 

"If bad guys get a hold of one one password, they can use social engineering and figure out passwords to a lot of your sites and if they get it from your browsers, now they have the key to a lot of things," said Boynton.

So where do you store them all safely? Many people use online password vault services.
