I have accounts scattered all over the Internet, most of which require passwords. As the list of sites started to add up I was guilty of overusing (and even reusing) simple passwords. That changed when I recently decided to subscribe to a password manager.
The manager stores my login information for all the websites in a cloud-based vault that uses a master password, so I only have to remember one. I log in with the master, then the information for the specific website automatically fills in. Became on my own I have trouble coming up with strong passwords, the manager also generates them for me if I ask it to…coming up with something like LgqQQB0TPtcYxGJkf5rf. Good thing I don't have to try to remember that string of characters!
