I saved only those, there are 2fa additional. I was robbed one time (someone logged in my account and withdraw 70$), from that event I'm more careful with passwords and accounts.

I do if it's something I'm not too concerned about, but not for banking info, etc. I was using a password manager, but it broke when Firefox was updated. Now, all my passwords are saved on various sites, and no matter how many times I change it manually, the old one still appears (and then says I'm using the wrong password). So, it's a pain to put them all in manually every time I clear cookies and such.

I need to set up a (better) password manager.

A valid suggestion.
But, if some devious third party gets hold of some of your personal documents such as IDs, they can guess your initials-based password.

Passwords should be different since if they are similar, than you can have problems with every site.

Yes, I am lazy. I also use Google Chrome sign in to keep my stuff for myself. I do not see much of a problem in that. First, i can easily gain control back thanks to mobile verification. Second, passwords that lead to sensitive data or not stored anywhere but in my head and are hard enough to make a simple guess by regular cracking programs. I kind of feel I am safe.
The few times I got my passwords stolen was was on social media sites, like Facebook. Not really surprised there. And I didn't use Facebook for half a year :crazy:

After losing a ton of important data from my dead hard drive I do not care for losing anything else. On the internet, in life. You cannot hold onto your savings and possessions hard enough to keep them no matter what. Yes, I got all spiritual thanks to a dead hard drive :lol:

I try not to when it's money-related but some I do save. The problem I have with saving passwords is that I end up forgetting what they are and whenever I need to sign in away from my computer, I can never ever remember them.

It always better to note down the passwords in a book than saving it. Its not recommended to save passwords online

But if you don't have note with you than it's better have them somewhere online.

I always do so. My all passwords are saved in password manager of the browser. But now, after reading your post I should delete the data from the browser, and also never again I will save passwords.
