Manage Service Passwords

What is this?
A Service Password is a password that is only valid for a specific service, such as E-mail.
Why should I use a Service Password instead of my regular password?
As a Service Password is only valid for a specific service it greatly limits what could happen if the password were to fall into the wrong hands.
Also it is much easier to add/revoke a Service Password than it would be to change your regular password.
The Service Password is so long and complicated, there's no way I'm going to remember it!
You should NOT try to remember these kinds of passwords.
You should just create a new password for each device/software that needs it.
That way you can revoke the password for one device without it affecting any of your other devices
