What doesn’t exist won’t leak, will it

I would like to take up this topic today —” LastPass says no passwords were compromised following breach scare” https://www.theverge.com/2021/12/28/22857485/lastpass-compromised-breach-scare

While we don’t know whether or not the credentials have actually leaked in this case, we do know that users of conventional password managers cannot escape an anxiety that their precious passwords could leak, and a single point of failure that often comes with the use of password management could wreak havoc.

Hence our proposition of ‘leak-proof’ password manager powered by Expanded Password System — “Password Manager or Expanded Password System”

and “Maximizing Entropy of Secret Credentials while Minimizing Burden on Citizens”
