Our passwords are an essential ingredient to our privacy and cybersecurity protections. They're also a pain, easy to steal, often reused (bad idea), and hard to remember. That said, I want you to forget all of your passwords except two.
DATA BREACHES, LEAKS, AND OTHER COMPROMISES
Look to see if you've been in one or more data breaches or leaks at Have I Been Pwned https://haveibeenpwned.com/. Safely enter your email address(es). If your information has been compromised please change your password at any listed sites. This database is not all inclusive and there are other ways to search for your information but this is a good start.
All of these are end-to-end encrypted (technically it's just encrypted if it's installed on your computer) and are zero knowledge. These terms mean that the organizations creating and managing the password managers can't see, access, use, or change the information you save in their systems.
WEB BROWSERS - Do not save your passwords in your browser(s).
