Appreciate the links and doing my best to understand the technology and terminology. Is the safest best to use such an extension (clear at intervals) or is this unnecessary being that I use a password manager with autofill?
There's something here concering password theft. Just note that passwords can be stolen in many ways

Thanks for the links.

So, unless I'm missing something, the takeaway for the github link is only use manual autofill (sounds a bit like an oxymoron) in password managers and ensure that you're on the correct login page before doing so.

The takeaways from the sentinelone page are never duplicate passwords, don't click on links in texts and emails unless you're sure they're safe, use 2FA wherever possible (which is quite a can of worms considering how insecure most implementations of it are these days), use strong (sufficient length / uncommon / etc) passwords which are stored securely / privately, have a strong security solution on your pc in general (AV / browser / OS / system / firewall / etc), and don't let the bastards grind you down ;]
