You have realised that a Virtual Assistant will be a great asset to your business, but you are now starting to worry about how things will work from a practical point of view. Lots of “how..?”, “when..?” and “what if..?” questions. But the one that makes you sweat the most is, “what about my passwords?”.
Maybe you have the same password for everything or maybe you have a super-secure system. Either way, you don't want to risk the security of any of your accounts by sharing your passwords. Well, I have some good news for you. Your Virtual Assistant doesn’t want to know your passwords! In fact, saying, “shall I give you my password?” to a Virtual Assistant is likely to send them into a state of panic. Think of it from the Virtual Assistant’s point of view. It is great that you trust your VA and the last thing they want to do is anything that compromises your business (it would compromise their business too). But, what if something does happen? What if your account gets hacked, now or in the future? Understandably you will question anyone that has access to your accounts and your Virtual Assistant does not want to be in that position.
You may already be using a password manager service for your personal accounts and they are great for personal use too. Hopefully, you can now see they are also a simple, safe and effective way to work with a Virtual Assistant.
