If you use the same email and password for every site, one breach and all your accounts are hacked. This is why I like to create a unique password for every site.
This causes a problem since the passwords become more complex and harder to remember. So I want to know what's best, password managers or password generators?
What are the advantages and disadvantages to each of them?
This is what I can think of:
Password generators (such as masterpassword...
Data is offline, meaning hackers have to target my computer
Generated by using an algorithm. Means they are not stored anywhere
If you forget the length of password or mistype it, you cannot recover the password
You need to manually enter the password, or copy it to the clipboard which could be accessed by 3rd party apps
Password managers (such as 1password)
Syncs across multiple devices
Autofill so you don't need to enter password manually or copy it to clipboard. Can also be a disadvantage because if someone else logs into my computer, they can log in to the account.
Stored on well known servers. Could be an ingesting target for hackers.
What other points are there? I would like to know the advantages and disadvantages of each so I can decide what I think is best.
