Default wins

Something changed in me today with my password habits. After over a decade of using 1Password as my default for account login management, I finally had a break in my habits. I went to create a new account for a piece of software, saw Apple’s suggestion for a new password, and chose to use it. This creates a split in where passwords reside. 

For so many years I’ve ensured that 1P is the source of truth; passwords are generated there, and my web browser can sometimes remember them and pick up on them, but at the end of the day I trust 1P. 

Now, with the new Apple Password app in MacOS beta, I’m second guessing my previous defaults, and wondering if the system password manager will be enough for me.
