It was raining this morning and a great time to update and rearrange my passwords. It’s been some years since the password’s folder had some serious attention and some well deserved house cleaning.
Once the folder was cleaned up and rearranged, (down to 80+ passwords now) it was a simple process to sync the data into a RoboForm2Go (on a usb stick) with the Synchronize Passwords manager. This wasn’t much of a problem before but now it’s real simple.
Forget your passwords?
Think it’s time to use a different password?
Do you access the same accounts at work and at home?
With all the passwords we use it’s easy to forget the easy ones like our Yahoo or Hotmail passords.
Here is a secure password manager & generator that will create and store your passwords.
Lost Password ?
Don’t think you´re the only one. The last survey says we are over whelmed with the amount of passwords we need to know at work and at home.
Over 15% of managers say they have over 15 passwords they need in their day-to-day business. Some keep them on notepads, spreadsheets or palm pc and pocket pc (not a safe place to keep passwords).
As Americans we are required to change our passwords less than the rest of the world, and I would expect that to pick up with the higher rate of security business web sites will be taking.
RoboForm runs on the toolbar of over 30 different browsers including IE, Foxfire, Mozilla Suites, and the newer Netscape’s. When I use 2 different browsers on the same machine: I will access the same account and login codes from the different browsers and the same information will be added to the forms.
