How to Not Reuse Passwords
Most of us are still reusing passwords, despite all the warnings
I found this article on John J. McLaughlin’s newsletter https://www.linkedin.com/comm/pulse/storage-security-cxo-events-ai-operations-cloud-email-mclaughlin
We could say goodbye to the issue of reused passwords by ditching the password altogether; people who cannot tolerate seeing passwords reused could perhaps tolerate the loss of security that comes with the loss of passwords (*1).
Some people say that biometrics might enable us to move on in this direction (*2)
You don’t believe in these theories?
Then you could opt to tolerate the re-use of passwords; it was proven decades ago that it is just futile to tell people to do what people are known to be unable to do. The society should tolerate the poor password security, which is definitely better than losing the password security altogether.
You don’t like this approach, either?
‘Hybrid Passwords’ will help you remove much of your password pains as a stopgap solution, right away, at no cost: ‘hybrid’ because it is made of a brain-remembered part of a password and an electronically-stored part of the password (*3)
You want to obtain a more comprehensive and practical solution?
Wait for us to complete the project of Mnemonic Gateways leak-proof password manager, with which you will be completely free of the pain of handling text-only passwords and can avoid getting trapped in a single point of failure (*4)
