Passwords (17)

How do you manage your passwords?
I typically use one password with minor variations for different sites. I want to use more secure passwords, but I'm just too lazy to create new ones, change all my old ones, and find a way to manage/memorize them.

I've heard some people use software to manage their passwords, but that doesn't sound safe to me.

I'd like to create my passwords based on my own system, and rather than write down the passwords, write down little puzzles to solve and figure them out. And keep that with my wallet or something.
I'm sure it'd be no match for puzzle masters and cryptologists, but I doubt those are the people who'd be stealing my wallet.

I use keyboard patterns. I don't know the actual letters/numbers of my password but I can type them from muscle memory.

I use paper. I write the passwords down using a pictographic alphabet I invented, which looks like a crude comic to the casual observer, so it's more steganography than cryptography. It also doubles as mnemonic device.

However since I'm also quite paranoid I also keep my passwords in Firefox (password manager ''and'' Scrapbook.) I'm not worried about safety because I use Firefox Portable inside a Truecrypt container.

Same as you OP. I'm too lazy, I've got a variation of 2 passwords. I find it pretty pointless and bothersome to try make different and safe passwords, and anyway I've made my browser register all of them, so it's already not safe at all.

I don't buy stuff on the internet, and I make my administrative stuff IRL, so I don't have any important info to be stolen. So I don't care.

If I find myself using a different keyboard, sometimes I can't type as efficiently as I can on my own. This might not work for me.
Do you keep the paper with you, or do you hide it somewhere?

>I make my administrative stuff IRL

A lot of people don't do this anymore, do they? I feel kind of weird paying bills by checks through the mail. But if I pay online, there's always a small fee. I can save around $70 a year by paying with check.

Sometimes when I sign up for unimportant sites, I just use the ID "nsf001", password "smashthestate". From the game Deus Ex. I like to think that somebody else will try that combination and feel surprise when they successfully log in.

I use pwsafe from the archlinux repos.

7 Name: Anonymage : 2016-01-15 23:13 [Del]

I keep it in a drawer. It's not necessary to hide it since the contents cannot be deciphered by anyone but me.

What if Professor Layton finds it?

I use 3 passwords: one for mail, one for cryptocontainers and one for GPG passphrases.
When I register somewhere I usually use md5(domain)+<my first password>. So, site administrators theoretically are able to log into my e-mail account.


> inside a Truecrypt container

Are you really a paranoid?

As far as I am concerned every piece of software is another possible exploit vector.
So I keep passwords on a bit of paper. Nobody from the internet can hack into that. Only people near me could possibly get it. They aren't very important ones either.

12 Name: Anonymage : 2016-01-25 00:33 [Del]

I write them down in a notebook, but I only use like 4 base passwords with different variations (numbers may be different, etc) and use the password manager in Firefox because I'm fucking lazy.

I'll probably get around to changing all of them next year to random, really long strings of numbers and letters.

13 Name: Anonymage : 2016-01-27 10:17 [Del]

All my passwords follow a format.A fixed number of letters,the first letter is in uppercase plus the phone number of one of my old schools.I just try one of the combinations i always use.

Over the course of forging passwords I have developed a technique of incorporating various passwords into one, so that I have an incredible array of passwords, all based upon three core passwords. For more security I duplicate a random letter and add a random unrelated word.

There is a new outrage every day.

Why politicians have not been assassinated by now is a mystery.

Government workers have sold their souls for a paycheck. How could any American not know about the Bill of Rights and be so willing to violate it?

Americans are too comfortable to rebel now because they are paralyzed with bread and circuses.

Patriots must resist today by moving abroad, buying guns, distributing ammo, holding meetings, making websites, or wearing a Nazi uniform in public.

How could the elites turn the US into a bankrupt warmongering police state and pay no price?

Be friendly and listen, but turn every conversation into a discussion about the US collapse.

Who runs Wall Street, Hollywood, the media, and the government?

Do you really think that the stock market will never crash?

Did debt work out well for Rome?

Why would the ruling class set up a police state if they don't plan to use it?

Americans need to forget their old life and plans by making fighting for freedom their obsession. Almost everyone under 50 will see the USA collapse in their lifetimes.

Will you wished that you had said something when you get forced to board the boxcars, sent to the concentration camps, and pushed into the ovens?

Memorize a sentence u like from books and just type it in without spaces, replace 1 or 2 letters with l33tspeak. Uncrackable password = achieved.

If you are a law-abiding and responsible person who doesn't have any debt, you might totally lose respect for the government and laws if you get fined $30,000 for having an illegal flagpole.
