Most people have to keep track of about 90 passwords. And security experts say you shouldn’t use the same one across multiple accounts and you should change them every few months. That’s too much! Our tech producer Christian Unser has a solution! A password manager!
Christian uses an app called 1Password. It stores all of your passwords in one place and you only have to remember one password to access the app. You can also store notes, your driver’s license and even passport information!

If you need to make up your own passwords, Christian also recommends using passphrases instead of words. For example, pick a song lyric and change a letter to a number. If you need to create a 4 digit pin, don’t pick your birth year! 20% of people make that mistake.
