My password manager app is in my head. I use a methodology for my passwords, so I usually remember them. Not always though - every once in a while I get stuck and have to hit that dreaded "forgot password" button.

 With respect, I don't trust PW managers.  If they get hacked, then every site I log onto, including my banks, is compromised.

To be honest I am scared of any online password managers.  I have them all written down somewhere, which I guess is bad if someone finds it, but that seems less likely than a hack on one of my devices.  I am so sick of a gazillion passwords though...-Kasey
