What actually is a password manager?

Like most of us, juggling 25 unique 18 character passwords in our heads is a big ask. And then remembering which one works with which account can be frustrating, let alone if you are forced to change one. The modern approach is to use a password manager.

This app, which can work on your phone, within a web browser, and as a standalone program means that you only need to remember one very hard-to-guess password. Which means, all the rest are stored within the app, ready to auto-fill the page you are logging into.

What this allows you to do, is randomise all your account passwords which makes the life of a hacker or brute force password cracker incredibly hard.
