Was recently part of a discussion about the trials and vagaries of creating passwords and the difficulty of remembering them. The comments almost alleviated some of the pain! In the process someone helpfully contributed this comic.
Sadly, the solution would likely be rejected by certain sites as being “insecure.” My problem is that I have close to 200 separate sites that each require passwords and they need to each be unique. Whoa! I use Last Pass for my ease of use, but I still need to try to keep up with remembering to update/change each!
I now try to avoid joining ANYTHING unless I have no other choice, and I link very few things to Facebook, Twitter, or Google. If any one of those gets compromised, the linked accounts could be at risk.
