It is noted that the account information is encrypted and stored locally on the user’s computer. This information is not available outside of the extension, and cannot be stolen. Also in the expansion you can add multiple wallets and easy to switch between them. If the user has forgotten the account password, you can restore it with the help of key phrases.
