    I agree. There are plenty of tools out there to help with this process. LastPass, 1Password, Keepass etc. can all generate very complex passwords and store them so you don't have to remember them.

      I've been wanting to get some sort of tool to help me out with this, any info on these that have ways of easily accessing them from other computers/phones/etc?

        I know 1Password and LastPass have iOS and Android companion apps. I use 1Password personally, and now I can't imagine living without it.

        I personally use Lastpass on OS X, iOS and Ubuntu (running on an obscure ARM processor no doubt) without issues, this is mostly due to that fact that Lastpass is an online service rather than a local app, with an excellent Chrome extension. I think that 1Password is limited to Apple devices, I've got no experience with Keepass.

      I wrote this, and I actually do use 1Password, and a little bit of iCloud Keychain, and I'd be totally lost without them. The point is how totally ridiculous the whole ordeal has gotten.

      You and I, being tech-savvy, make use of tools like these. But the average person doesn't.
