What is the best way for you to creat a password and manage your password, for me I use 1password and I also write It in piece of paper.

I’m glad you asked, Amer! I’ve discussed password creation and management many times over the years. However, now – more than ever before – it’s CRUCIAL that we all have very strong passwords. You need a different password for every site you use, and it needs to be SECURE. Because of this, it’s not really an option to use a password manager of some type… it’s pretty much MANDATORY.

And, of course, enabling 2fa is extremely recommended whenever possible.

You wouldn’t want some idiot stealing your information, would you?
