No actually, it's not impossible.
I use 1password, you might use LastPass. They both work on Android, iPhone,
Linux, Mac, Windows.
I have over 900 passwords in that system, and I don't know any of them.
They're all 8-14 characters. All random. I know my master password, and no
one on the Internet has a copy of that. On some systems, I have a Yubikey
with a 45 character master password.
Change your habits. Fix the password anti-pattern.
