Most people are too lax about passwords.
Some people have a sticky note on their computer with their password. (not good!)
And some people use easy-to-guess passwords like “123456” or “password.”

But getting you bank account siphoned down by a hacker is more than a pain.

I agree that LastPass is the best option for most folks who don’t yet have a password manager.
It’s free for most of the features you’d want, and it’s easy to use.
Sometimes a password manager can trip you up but it’s still the best option.
