Didn't you read the article? You can't trust password managers because, uh, if someone steals your computer all your passwords are lost. Too bad it's completely impossible to have them backed up somewhere and encrypted. Yeah....

It's kind of interesting that Mr Kocher makes the oldest mistake of all: keeping the passwords on a note in his wallet. Obviously much safer than a password manager with an encrypted database. Apparently it's also impossible to have your wallet stolen. Wtf?

Security expert my ass.
