One of the main entry points for hackers is using a leaked or plain password.

So if you reuse passwords regularly or choose simple phrases that are easy to guess, you could be hacked very easily.

One way to avoid this is to use a password manager — and thankfully, Google offers one through Chrome.

A password manager stores your passwords in your Google account, so you don’t have to remember them all.
