    We all know we should be using a password manager, right?

    Wait. What’s a password manager?

    I installed the browser plug-in and the app on my phone. Seems easy so far, now, to set it up. That turned out to be a black hole for me. I tried to set up a couple of accounts I had strong credentials on, but ended up having to do a password reset. So here I am, waiting for the password reset email…..

    Meanwhile, I pull up another browser tab, and on to something else. So much for setting up my password manager….

    Finally, I managed to break this cycle, and this is the secret I’ll share with you: Install the plug-in and leave it on. Every time I logged into a website for year, I just kept adding credentials. And therein lies the secret of how to set up a password manager.
