Even when you’re using a password manager, it's a good idea to enable two-factor authentication (sometimes called two-step verification) for all your online accounts that offer it. An extra layer of protection never hurts.

Make use of other security features

Some password managers offer the option to log you out after a period of inactivity. That’s useful, because it's not a good idea to keep the password vault open for extended periods of time, especially on a shared computer. Logging you out automatically can limit the damage if your computer gets temporarily infected with malware. It's also best not to flag devices as “trusted,” which disables two-factor authentication for that device.
