Nowadays, because of the excessive usage of the Internet, every Internet user out there has at least 3 to 5 online accounts. At times, the websites or applications to which these accounts belong have very strict password policies so that the users do not end up creating weak and easily breakable passwords. Because of this, the passwords that we are forced to create are difficult to remember. In such situations, password managers play a very important role in not only managing our passwords but also in offloading the burden of remembering the difficult passwords from our shoulders.
