Hello everyone

As usual, I'm out of my depth.

I don't want to use biometrics

I've taken the plunge, and installed a 2FA authenticator on an Android smartphone.

My question is about the authenticator's main password.

Do you recommend I type such mile-long password in, by hand, myself??

Or do you think it would be much safer to install, on such smartphone, a password-manager??

But, thinking about its risk of being compromised, I'm not sure (security-wise) about installing a password-manager on an Android smartphone.

Any suggestion??

In advance, thank you very much for your help
