Migrating password managers has made me realize the absurd amount of passwords I have. Are we really expected to memorize those?

What are good solutions to this? I can think of using client certificates (which ends up being very similar to just having a password managers, and most people wouldn't like the inconvenience) or domain sign in (like on the IndieWeb), but not everyone wants to set up a personal domain—that'd be great though...

@ob Client certificates with one giant storage location... so you'd basically have the one password to retrieve certificates when setting up a new device. Yeah, it's similar to password managers but offers a couple conveniences: 1) auto generated certificate when creating new accounts 2) automatic login 3) once the certificate is installed on your device, it doesn't need to talk to the cert store anymore
