Does anyone use a password manager?

Looking for a password manager that isn't too hard to set up and use.  I know there are free managers but I'm afraid I'd get what I pay for with those. 

 

Do you use one? Which one? How hard?

@MamaWick. Yes, I use Google Password Manager.  It must have been pretty easy to set up because I did it.  It's been a long time ago but I don't recall any trauma.

 

I couldn't operate without it.

You need to sign up for a Google account. Once you do it comes with a password manager. If you just put Google in your search engine, it will walk you through the necessary steps.

My iPhone has a built in password option. I also use a password book I purchased on Amazon for $6.

Yes and auto-fill for some sites.  I don't have my banks, 401k, or credit card passwords saved. I have a security service that checks and notifies me of a breach.

I store all my passwords in my "NOTES" document in Word.

@Kachina624     I use the one that's "built in" with Microsoft Edge.    I was recently perusing it....and actually laughed out loud at some of the corny passwords I had made up over the years...and had forgotten.    di

One of the best passwords I've had in the past was my childhood telephone number, plus a letter or two.

I'm the password manager, I write my passwords in an address book.

I use LastPass. I love the feature where it generates a suggested password based on random number/letter/symbol combinations. It uses a master password and two step verification.
