Even using a password manager won’t protect your account 100%. People will still fall for a phishing attack, or a brute force attack. This is easily done by clicking a fake link provided or downloading unsafe software.
It’s also possible that your credentials will be stolen from a service provider. Sites experiencing data breaches and losing customer names and passwords barely make the news as it’s becoming more common.
These compromises are why changing your passwords and using different passwords for every account are considered best practises, especially within the workplace.
If a breach is discovered, change your password and consider employing something even more secure such as multi-factor authentication.
