It's definitely a leap to use a password manager. Actually it's a pain in the ass. but it's so worth it.
Passwords aren't going away any time soon so this is the only safe options for the near future. Get onto it.

LastPass means you never have to use the same password on multiple websites again. Use the handy features to share your passwords with other users and sync your work account so that you can easily onboard team members. User for yeasrs.
- Myki is an interesting one I've been testing out lately. Passwords only stored locally, and instead of having a "master" password like most services, it uses your touchID fingerprint. So far the experience is pretty good. It works by recognizing login/password fields like most services, and then sending a request to your phone to fill the fields. When you give permission using your fingerprint, it auto-inputs the username & password. It can create randomized passwords with lots of characters, etc. like 1Password. There are a few bugs (probably because they're new), but they are really only minor inconveniences like having to resend a login request if your phone for some reason didn't pick it up.1Password was my go to password manager for years but myki changed everything! Started using it a few months back and never looked back! no passwords on the cloud and best UI for a password manager hands down definitely worth a trySince the Cloud has been proven to be so vulnerable (cf. the attacks/breeches/failures witnessed these past few months) using a decentralized system to store my passwords was crucial. This is the first thing that made me turn to Myki. Myki even auto-fills out the 2 factor authentication. Then I discovered a whole lot of other useful features that help me manage and store my passwords efficiently. One of them being the sharing center, that offers an easy way to store, share and track shared accounts (and revoke them too!) We can now add credit cards and myki helps autofill them securely while making an online transaction. I've been happily using it for the past 8-9 months, and definitely advice everyone to give it a shot.
I have been using Myki for ~6 months now. Myki is an excellent password app that has all the major features of the more popular apps with one big added bonus - it's essentially 2 factor authentication for all of your stored passwords, because you must have your phone with you to fill passwords on your computer (more on this later).
Here's a quickie on how Myki works: You're using your laptop. You navigate to a website and need to fill in your password. A Myki prompt pops up, you click it, and then a notification shows on your phone to grant access. Tap "Grant" on your phone, use your fingerprint to authorize, and you're done! Myki fills the password on your computer.
I've used 1Password for a long time now and generally think they are the best of the "big" password managers. However, I don't like the idea that if anyone stole my computer, they could try to guess my master password and then have access to all of my sensitive data. With Myki, they would need my computer AND my phone. You cannot get Myki to fill a password just from the Chrome extension, like 1Password, you always have to authenticate on your phone.
Myki also stores passwords locally, which is a big plus for those of us worried about cloud hacks.
We all know we have a big weakness in passwords. Randomly generated passwords via 1Password are great and help make our accounts more secure, but you still have to come up with a master password that you easily remember & type, which means it's likely that the password you need to be MOST SECURE is the EASIEST to guess! D'oh! Myki eliminates that inherent conflict by using your fingerprint as the passcode.
On a final note, there are a few bugs in Myki since it's so new. But I keep an eye on the release notes, and they've been frequently knocking out bugs and improving the app. I run 1Password alongside it right now for convenience, but eventually once Myki has really built out its platform, I plan to fully switch over. I'd highly recommend you check this out, especially if you're a cyber-security freak like myself (which, who shouldn't be lately- gotta hodl those bubbly bitcoins).
Myki has become an indispensable tool in my day-to-day life. Now with the credit card integration i'm also using myki during my online shopping. Can't wait to see what's yet to come.
- Attention on security. Simplicity and cross platform. Very affordable. UI not quick as polished as it could be.
