  1. While using a browser’s built-in password manager is better than nothing, shouldn’t one use an app that provides real security for the passwords, such as LastPass or KeePass?

  2. LastPass or KeePass provides real security and I do accept it. There is no restriction on using them, but when we have built-in password manager, why to go for third party softwares? We generally go for such external softwares, when built-n functionalities does not provide what we want.

    1. “why to go for third party softwares?”
      For the same reason users switch from IE to Chrome, Firefox, Opera and other third party browsers. For the same reason users install third party anti-malware. For the same reason you use a deadbolt lock on your front door instead of a simple key lock. Because, most of the time, third party products perform much better. If built-in browser password managers provided good security, third party password managers such as KeePass or LastPass would not have been developed. However, feel free to use the junk provided by your browser.
