Are password managers a violation of Section 5 of the Terms of Use?

Initially, I had been using Google's password manager to make and store my Wikimedia password. However, once I found out that you may not disclose passwords to a third party, I stopped using it. For this reason, I had forgotten the password to my former account (which had no email attached to it) and later created this account. Caehlla2357 (talk) 17:30, 16 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"you should follow the policies that govern each of the independent Project editions."

It is very unclear what the policies precisely are you have to follow as an editor. It would be good, when the Wikimedia Foundation would create a kind of "basic line policies" everyone is obliged to follow and publish these basic policies uneditable on a spot that is easy to find. Furthermore it would be good, editors would be informed beforehand, what eventual consequences would be of not following policies. Last but not least it would be good to know, what body is the authority to decide on issues and according to what rules. Thanks!
