Re: Passwords

The response from Nadine Dorries just proves how stupid some people are. She is not that old, and must have experienced the computer/web for quite a lot of her adult life, yet she makes ridiculous statements like those in the article. The worrying thing is, these people are making laws and decisions that rule our livesSad

I don't share passwords with anyone other than my other half, and even then only the ones where we have joint interests.

Re: Passwords

Want to test how secure your passwords are ?

Just post them here in the forum and I will tell you, there is a small charge for this service but you need not do anything as I will automatically deduct the sum from your bank account

Re: Passwords

I would imagine that most MP's share their passwords.

How else would their staff do all their work for them?

Re: Passwords

Well if you wanted a really secure one, generate a GUID.

A site like this will do it for you:

GUID generator

Or if you have SQL installed, the good old:

SELECT newid()

So mine is:

893d5a04-5c53-405d-a52d-75adcc6df3e8

P.S. No it isn't, I was joking. Mind you you'd need a good memory and if you could remember it typing that in ad vertiam would get on your nerves.

Re: Passwords

A recent problem for me is that the unintelligible and hard to remember ones are very difficult to type in via the titchy virtual keyboard on a mobile or tablet.  The "several unconnected words" idea is good unless it's one of those sites which insists on having numerals and/or symbols.

It will be nice when machines check you out via camera/touchpad/voice recognition so you don't need to remember a thing.

Re: Passwords

And how do you change your password should your current password be compromised?

Re: Passwords

Just been reading this on BBC

Sharing passwords is not a breach of the UK's Data Protection Act.

But the law says that "appropriate" security measures concerning personal data must be in place and that those with access must be properly vetted.

Re: Passwords

Properly vetted? hmmm, I'll book an appointment for wifey at the local vets'r'us. Lips are sealed  Then have her checked out to see if she passes enhanced dbs/crb, 

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Re: Passwords

Oh dear, you mean that Passw0rd is no longer secure, what about Letmein (a stock one on some commercial equipment)

Just read that article and thought we PAY these people? Next they will be putting their password on stick it notes or in a notebook in the desk drawer - what you mean they are ALREADY doing that ;-(

Re: Passwords

I've said this before, but you used to be able to have Password01.

It is what I use for some sites I don't care about - so now, as their validation checks have improved they just tell you off for having the word password as a password.
