I can’t even tell you how many times a week people would say to me, “What’s my password?”. Its like you have got to be kidding me. You don’t know what your password is and you type it to log in almost every day. Having the daily cringe of phone calls and texts of “what’s my password” in my brain.
I didn’t want to live in fear of this stupid problem due to people drinking fluoridated water and meds so I started memorizing everyone’s password to computers, email, wireless access points and I kept past and previous passwords all logged in my head. Better than that the Dewey Decimal System the library used. I am so happy Dewey and his family are dead. It was shitty system that never really worked well.
Some of these people would even have me write their passwords down and stick them on the monitor (like that’s secure) and they would still ask “What’s my password? WTF… ”
Some were so dumb that I said if you handle having a password then you don’t need one and I would take away all of their passwords.
One thing I would recommend is getting a good password manager like KeePassX you can google it. If you can’t find it then you are probably too dumb to have passwords too. It’s secure and not online just in your box. And if your smart keep the passwords on one computer and only access the sites from another computer. Never keep both of them on the same computer and save them in Firefox because it’s stupid.
Remember, there is no such thing as security, it’s an illusion. Its all about trust and all the trust is broken because it’s backdoor’d at the hardware and software levels in so many places it’s impossible to truly be secure with any electronic device. You would have to have pre 2004 hardware and still your upstream is sniffing my packets and constantly trying to get into box.
Its like you have to tell Verizon, Comcast, and every other provider to stick it and cock block them with a hardware firewall to keep them from penetrating your network.
Getting back to the point use a good password manager, only use pass phrases to access it and not password. The bigger the sentence the better. Just don’t fucking forget it and ask me. My brain has too much shit in it already and I shouldn’t have to remember it for you too.
