For being a css "hack" with UTF chars, it's not terrible.

Probably could be made to look nicer with some more work put in (ex: Starting the flowers not at the center of the character like they are now on the edges)

Ah, so is that sort of like the password section of Firefox? It lists all the URLs you have passwords saved for and you can then click on the eyeball icon to view what the saved password is. (It will also generate random secure passwords if you want). The only issue is, if I need to log in on the phone, I have to open that up and then type in the secure password which can sometimes be annoying on a mobile touch screen.

I guess the password manager also has the added plus of being password protected to get to that screen where Firefox doesn't.

Do you keep the password manager on your Phone so you have it on the go? I agree a cloud based solution sounds good on paper but would be a nightmare if the account got compromised. Which seems to happen all the time these days with companies and sites.

    It's just weird and silly enough to be fun. You have to open the Password Manager on your device and type the password in manually on the other device. There's some cloud-based services out there, but what happens if they guess your cloud-based password manager password? You can save the file and... more

        I'm wondering if websites will just start assigning you a password that fits their requirements (I should find a "high profile" website with such restrictive rules there's only like 16 passwords available and brute force them all--then publish it.) I keep it on the computer only, anything that I need... more

          Just happened to LastPass: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/lastpass-developer-systems-hacked-to-steal-source-code/
          • Looks like they had some source code stolen - Puckdropper, Sat Sep 03 2022 3:20am
            IIRC, KeePass is open source so you can read the source yourself if you'd like. I really do find it interesting that things can be very open and very secure. It seems like they'd be opposing forces but instead they're complementary.
