Apple and Google offer integrated tools for storing passwords in their products. In addition, there are various applications for this purpose. Thanks to these tools you don’t need to remember passwords.

How to generate a strong password?

1. The password must contain upper and lower case letters, numbers, spaces and special characters.
2. The password must contain at least 9 characters.
3. Do not tell anyone or send your passwords.
4. Do not use personal information while creating a password.
5. Use different passwords for your accounts.
6. Use two-factor authentication.

However, we are all people with fairly limited memorization abilities, so using a password generator can be a salvation.
