Passwords in password “safes” can still be stolen

You can see that centralizing your information in one location that you don’t control (like pen and paper) can have negative side effects. Using a password manager on your computer or network can be safer than an online service because your attack surface area is much smaller (i.e. your computer vs. a public website). On the other hand, using one password for everything is even less secure even without a password manager.

Think about what you’re doing for your passwords.
