Thanks Casey,
What I did up to now was that I have several passwords and I would change them by the specific algorithm so I can use them for several webpages so I am kind of safe against that "robots". In this way I really just on my brain/memory. It is not very strong protection but hopefully it will do the job at least for a while. But most definitely want to get something more sturdy but based again in my head/memory compared to an external program.
 
And I will enable the two step protection of my Google account, however thanks to courtesy of Hackerspace Seoul I use now just single Linux based machine so I should be quite safe.

Many thanks,

Sincerely,

Also, never re-use passwords between accounts. Get a password manager like 1pass or keepassx (my favorite). Use distinct random password for EVERYTHING.

I was working from some public libraries recently(no cafes) and it is hard to understand which option is "do not save my password" in Korean. Of course tracking and exposing the person who is trying to cause problems would be handy.
