One option for storing strong passwords is to use a password manager, which is a secure software application that stores and manages all your passwords in an encrypted database. Some examples of popular password managers include LastPass, 1Password, and Dashlane.
A good password manager ensures that you only have to remember one master password to access your stored passwords, and it can even generate strong, unique passwords for you. This can significantly improve your online security by preventing password reuse and weak passwords.
Password managers also offer additional security features such as two-factor authentication and secure password sharing with trusted individuals. Additionally, some password managers offer the ability to store not just your passwords, but other sensitive information such as credit card details and secure notes.
Overall, using a password manager is a convenient and secure way to store and manage your strong passwords.
