Is it OK to use your browser’s built-in password manager? by Ed Bott
The thing that the article forgets to mention is that malware often targets the password file stored on disk or registry. That's why most experts have often recommended not to save passwords in the browser. But I'm not sure how third party password managers deal with this issue. I assume as long as passwords are encrypted, you should be save. And don't forget to use 2FA as extra account protection of course.
yes. the keyword is encryption here. and most pwm's let you save your pw's in the cloud.
I know I'm going to cop a lot of heat for this - BUT - we all know how safe the cloud is.
Best to get yourself a well known respective password manager, may take a little time getting used to / setting up.
But in the long run, you'll be glad you did.
Not only for security but for convenience purposes as well.
I would not trust it, never did. I prefer password managers myself. My choice is Bitwarden.
for my money, (encrypted cloud storage is) no less safer than local storage.
Wow. Didn't expect this coming in from left field. I didn't mention anywhere that I don't use a pwm.
My post was not directed at you.
It was my opinion on the topic of this post.
Separate names with a comma.
