Password Managers

A password manager assists in generating and retrieving complex passwords. The password can be stored in an encrypted database or calculated on demand. Types of password managers include locally installed software applications, online services that are accessed through website portals, and locally accessed hardware devices that serve as keys. Depending on the type of password manager being used and the functionality offered by its developers, the encrypted database is either stored locally on the user's device or stored remotely through an online file hosting service. Password managers typically require its user to create and remember one master password to unlock and access to any information stored in its database. Definition provided from Wikipedia.
