    Independent Security Evaluators found some worrying flaws in popular password managers, but still suggest that you use one.

    Password managers, which have been suggested to internet users from all cybersecurity experts, are convenient and ensure the security of your account, but what if they are the source of vulnerability? A new report suggests that these password managers may not be as secure as you might think.

    Before you go and delete your password manager and revert all your passwords back to 123456, note that the researchers who found these vulnerabilities in the five most popular password managers, still think that you should use one.

    The Independent Security Evaluators (IES) note that password managers are still a good thing, but found that they contain some worrying flaws on the security front, such as storing the master password for the application in the PC’s memory in plaintext form.
