@Poryg it's in the article yah as well as checking if your password was pwned https://haveibeenpwned.com/Passwords
@Sharm why sigh?
There has been way too many data breaches the past few years. Something needs to be done about it.
@Poryg Because coming up with new passwords that are not only secure but something I'll remember is a pain, especially since I'm having memory problems lately.
Maybe I'm too old or something, but I don't trust those things. If my hotmail gets hacked, I just lose an email address. If a password manager gets hacked, you lose your digital life.
I understand your concern. Until recently I was afraid to use one as well, for the exact same reason.
Nevertheless, experience is telling me that any good password manager is much safer than passwords generated by me.
The reason for that is, security related companies have to invest in their security quite heavily if they want to maintain great reputation. Any major security breach could mean the end for them. And I'm alone and have to generate passwords I will remember.
So just like I trust my bank that it won't steal my money, just like I trust a taxi driver with my life... I'm much more ready to trust a reputable password manager than myself.
That makes sense. I know myself well enough to know what I can and can't trust, and I like to keep the illusion of control where I can, so I'm going to stick with my way a bit longer.
