People often use their browsers to manage passwords for their online accounts as this offers an easy option, rather than remembering a different password for each online account.
While it might be convenient, the drawbacks of using this option are:
- Your accounts become vulnerable when strangers, family members, friends and visitors have physical access to your computer.
- If your computer is lost or stolen, access may be gained to all your online accounts and information.
- If your computer has been remotely hacked, your saved passwords will give hackers access to all your information, including your online accounts.
