Managing Your Digital Stuff - Passwords
A password for an online account resides with the organization providing the account. You have to login into that account to change the password. The password or passcode for a computer, smart phone, or tablet resides in the device and nowhere else. How you remember passwords is a huge problem. Using a password manager is the best solution.
