What are password managers?

A password manager is a piece of software used to store all of your complex passwords, so you don’t have to try to remember them.

Password managers can be desktop or cloud-based and you can use them to store your login information for all the websites you use, allowing you to log into them automatically.

This ‘database’ of information is then encrypted with a master password, and this is the only password that you then have to remember.
