each site has a unique, computer-generated password. which is stored in encrypted form and only decrypted by you when you need to retrieve that single password. if one of the 20 sites doesn't store their password properly in their database, only that password will be compromised and the other 19 are safe. This is much better than using a single super-secure-nobody-could-possibly-guess-it password for all sites.

apologies for incorrect word manufacturage, professor. I figured a post by someone who couldn't figure out what to do with a dead phone might have been a place where it'd be possible to get away with less than dissertation-level language usage. also, don't actually put it in a microwave. it could asplode.
