I think you misunderstand how password managers work, based on your message up top. They just store passwords and other sensitive info for you, and make that info easy to access or insert into applicable input fields.Hi Guys, I wasn’t looking to start a war, just looking for some assistance.
So if you want to improve the password you use on any particular website, just go to that website and change the password normally. Rather than suck a new password out of your thumb you just click the password manager's extension and let it generate a password for you. Make sure you fiddle with the settings so that the generator spits out 25+ character monsters. And always ensure that you're saving your passwords into the manager - occasionally you'll need to manually add it for the domain but usually it should be a one-click ordeal.
Many password managers have one-click password changing facilities, but tbh I feel a lot better doing it myself manually. They don't work often enough anyway to be a reliable solution for me.
I recommend starting out with Bitwarden. Like LastPass its core functionality is also free, but the Premium subscription is less than half the price and in my opinion the browser extension is nicer to use.
