Master-Password.png
23 KB, 433x153
Ever since seeing how easy it is to get ahold of a list of passwords from a pc (I've done it multiple times when I'm fixing some dipshit's pc and don't feel like continuously asking them to type a password), I have become weary of password protection. I've been using Firefox' "master password" option, but there are countless articles and yt videos on external applications like KeyPass, etc. Is there something I don't know about Firefox' "master password" option? Or is it just for people that want to use chrome?

The time with come when you need to use a different browser or computer and you won't have a clue what the password is.

That's the only downside I can think of really.

Alright, in that case im currently good, and when I know I'll need a different browser I'll just copy the password list.

Firefox's password functionality doesn't have much use outside of the browser; KeePass is useful for all sorts of passwords e.g. Wi-Fi, bank PIN, PIN on that lock that you never use, etc.

alright, so for people unlike me who can't remember their wifi passwords or bank pin or have responsibilities

Firefox master password should be ok.
Technically maybe it's not as good as dedicated password programs (it certainly has less features), but I didn't see an legit claims that it's broken/unsafe or anything.
