    You give us absolutely no context for your question, but from the reference to "each user" I'm guessing you are developing an app or website rather than asking about your own personal passwords.

    In which case my quick answer is "somewhere secure" and "don't store the damned passwords themselves, that's a rookie mistake that was unforgiveable 30 years ago never mind today". You store salted hashes, never plain text passwords. If you don't know what that means, stop everything else until you've learned.

    Without knowing what you are doing it's impossible to say more.

    I did say "unforgivable rookie error".

    Anyway Facebook are the go-to example of a company who don't care a damn about your security or privacy (but spend a fortune protecting their founder's).
