Sind Passwordmanager wirklich die Lösung für all unsere Passwortprobleme?

There are different policies for the generation of secure passwords. 
However, one of the biggest challenges is to memorize all these complex 
passwords. Password manager applications are a promising way of storing 
all sensitive passwords cryptographically secure. Accessing these passwords 
is only possible if the user enters a secret master password. At first 
sight, the requirements for a password manager application seem simple: 
Storing the passwords of a user centralized in a secure and confidential 
way. However, how is the reality on mobile, password manger applications, 
especially on Android? Applications vendors advertise their password 
manager applications as “bank-level” or “military-grade” secure. However, 
can users be sure that their secrets are actually stored securely? 
Despite the vendors’ claims, is it nevertheless possible to obtain 
access to the stored credentials?

Selbst wenn nun die gefundenen Probleme behoben sind, sind Passwordmanager immer noch ein Honeypot und anlaufstelle für die die nach Passwörtern suchen.
