How to create a secure password that I can remember
I just spent the better part of my day updating passwords because some jerk thinks it’s okay to steal stuff. Apparently lots of gigabytes of information has been hacked from Adobe’s database. First of all, what the hell. Second of all, ugh.
Adobe isn’t a small company. I use Adobe products. I love Adobe.
Even though I work with a guy who preaches about “using secure passwords and not checking bank accounts over un-secure websites,” I never listened. I never thought it was a big deal. I always responded with, “It won’t happen to me.” Hell, I didn’t use “password” as my password, I’m fine. But apparently it’s pretty much the same if my password hint is “this is your password: BlendraRocks.”
For crying out loud. I’m about ready to pull back and sack each of these jerks in the face with a butter sock. Wwwap! And it’s gonna hurt.
Why’s it gotta be so hard?
I mean I did have one of my credit cards stolen once. It was online. I didn’t buy a $400 TV and apparently neither had my husband. I figured that out when I called to accuse him. It was a pain in the ass to figure out which places that credit card was linked to and which bills I had automatically withdrawn from that account. So you’d think I would be more careful when it comes to my passwords.
Well, I’m not. I have kids to take care of. Ain’t nobody got time to think of secure passwords. Seriously, I have a gazillion accounts. Lots of usernames. Who can remember a unique password for each account?
So right now I’m searching for the best app for that. Anyone? I’d prefer free, but apparently “free isn’t always better.” Ugh. I’m gonna go find a tub of butter while I wait for your comments on how I can keep my passwords safe, yet easily accessed.
PS, I made my title as long as my password should be. Only it doesn’t have any special characters and all of those words are spelled correctly. Secure password fail.
