These are the password tags:

Do we really need all of them? I feel like they're too specific and I don't think we need so many tags for password related questions. I think we can merge / remove some of them. What do you think?

    If anything's wrong, I'd say that [passwords] is too unspecific. Password management, recovery and protection definitely deserve their own tags, IMO.

  • If any of them should be merged, then that would be [password-management], [password-protection], and [password-generation]. [password-recovery] should be a separate tag.

On [security.se], there's passwords, password-management and password-policy. Password policy is more of an administrator subject.

Password generation goes hand in hand with password choices which are usually asked with , so I suggest merging that one.

is a bit of a mess, as it covers password storage (preventing others from obtaining your password), setting something to be password-protected (?), and coping with a feature that includes a password protection (→ ). It needs manual cleanup.

is a separate concept worth keeping.


I removed for the time being. I agree with @slhck, could be improved.
