Typically you don’t wanna have more than two or three passwords memorized inside your head.
But most of the time that’s not a choice. Some sites force you to have alphanumeric passwords, while your banks and credit card access force you to have only numeric passwords.
When it comes time for you to change your password, life start to get really complicated. Sometimes it’s the computer system force you to have a new password, sometimes you get phished, sometimes a girlfriend who know your password just broke up with you.
If you are like any friend I know, changing password means having a new kid. Pretty soon you’re gonna forget which kid is where, which password is for which login.
That’s why password manager is so important to me. There are plenty of great password manager out there. I personally have been using Oubliette for some time (though it’s been discontinued). But I know not a lot of people are that diligent with one.
The truth is most people are not that security-conscious. But the way the web has evolved, password manager is no longer about security anymore. It’s about freeing up your mind...
