Password, general question

Hi

Not sure if I am good here to post this question?

Is it safe to save your password on the computer? You're the only one who using it, no one other. So it's safe then?

Youre likely not talking about the computer password but password for applications/ websites.

It comes down to a trust. How much you trust them and that there are no bugs/vulnerabilities. Also consider how big is the downside. Is it juat some forum you use unique password for and if worst comes to worst someone can access your account or certain account they can do one click purchases.

there are applications which can store/remember your passwords but how safe are those, dont know. It is a judgement call and managing risk with important websites/applications.

Please specify what kind of password you mean and what which purpose.

Yes, password for applications and website. The purpose of this because I have a lot of account for different website and for every account different password. Can't remember all the password.

So what can I do?

Edit: Didn't see the sticky thread about security. Will check it out now

Re: Password, general question

Use a password manager with 2FA
Encrypt your hard drive
Use a strong password or passphrase for your local admin account
Do not use an admin account for day to day computing
The end
