Why password managers are important

Do you use the same password for more than one site?

It is a common mistake. The problem is that if some one gets your password from one site, they will have it for your other sites as well.

You need to use unique passwords for each site.

But will need help to generate the passwords, and help to remember the passwords.

That is the purpose of password managers.

1Password: AES 256 bit encryption, convenient and simple

-- with browser integration

Create a strong password for the master password, but it needs to be memorable.

Recommendation: use four random words: "correct horse battery staple"

supported browsers: safari chome firefox opera
