One alternative is "continuous authentication".

I was at a CISO conference in San Diego last year - the CISO of Aetna was presenting on their new technology to authenticate their users without bothering them with passwords and PINs.

When you're using their website, they are tracking about 30 different elements about you. Typing speed, mouse movements, IP address, location, time of day, pages visited... When you're using their mobile app, it's no less than 60 elements. The angle you hold the phone, biometrics, other apps installed,...

They know it's you without you having to do anything different.

Other technologies in play are FIDO2 and WebAuthn, coming to an Android near you. https://www.wired.com/story/android-...s-login-fido2/

One more vote for LassPass. Been using it for 4-5 years now. Very simple - I remember one password, and that's it.

I think I will go with lastpass I have heard about it for years , just never took the plunge.

Has anyone heard of SQRL by Steve Gibson of GRC.com ?

Some day it will revolutionize how we log into websites . It is basically a QR code like when they scan a grocery item from a store.

Personally I can't wait till SQRl takes off . But I suspect websites that want to track you will be the hold outs.

One of the key features besides its brilliant security is ..... we all have wanted to make a post on a website but did not really want to go through the sign up process of being a member.
With SQRL it is possible to become an instant member of a website. The trick of course is getting all the websites to buy in.
