The best password ethic is that you use a different password for any and all accounts that you create and with the number of social platforms we have today, as well as others that require registrations too, it is impossible to remember every password for each specific one. 1Password comes in handy here and helps you to remember all of the passwords for all of your accounts. The mobile version can be synced to the desktop app, and it stores a different password for all of the accounts that you have created online. What do you need to do? Just remember one password.
