The dangers of insecure passwords
As mentioned above, password management can become a nightmare. You can write them all down on a piece of paper, but if someone takes them, your online identity will be compromised.
Alternatively, if you choose to use the same password for all of your online accounts, you risk a lot. The use of variations of the same password is also not recommended. There are methods to resolve these changes.
Defining and memorizing different passwords is the most secure solution. Even if you forget your passwords, you can recover them or find a new one somehow. In most cases, anyway.
However, there are third-party applications that can continually change your passwords and randomize them for you. These services can be synchronized on all the devices you use, allowing fast and secure connections. They are a little tedious to install, but you will get them back quickly. These services are without a doubt the best way to do this.
