Am able to use password generator to generate passwords that comply with whatever the website requirements (like: x&7f45C#n) and not have to remember anything except a single, albeit very complicated, password.


Password: mynameisnotyoursby12
is stronger then
Password: !@#DTh282=/

easy to remember and stronger

Another option is to have different levels of passwords, based on how much security you need for that site. Then you can have 1 passwor for all the lowest level things, and passwords/patterns for the other level(s).
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Thats what I do.

But then you still get stuck with some low level security that require high level passwords.

-1 there is more than one way to hack a password it's definitely harder to crack with brute force but there are other ways to hack that your first one is easier to crack
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

A friend of mine has 3 passwords one for things that don't really need a password and he would almost publicize it another for things that need a password but are not extremely important and a third for banks and really important stuff which he changes every few months

Except that a ton of websites wouldn't even let you use the horse password. Which is backwards of course, but whatever...

In my hble understanding what these programs are doing are sotoring your passwords on your computer probably in a excel file and the program is just a UI well in that case a hacker that knows how the program works would just search for the right name and he has all your passwords. Instead why not create your own unidentified excel sheet and you can even put a password on it

In my hble understanding that you don't understand the basics of encryption

You would think so, but sadly that is not the case.
