Everyone loves a password reset don't they? No? It's good for security to regularly change them but ohhhhhhhhhh the pain when you've forgotten it, the ache of trying to desperately remember what great ideas or inspiration you had when you first made that super secure, strong, good strength password.
There is such a sense of achievement when you hit that third bar of strength and feel so smug that no one in the whole of the world web is breaking into that baby!!! But the thing is you mix up the characters and numbers up so much you end up completely forgetting it, and we know it's not a good thing to write them down right???
So then comes the reset and to think of yet another great word that will blow the super hackers away. It has to be more than what seems like a million characters and include a capital letter, number, symbol, Pye to 24 places and the solution to the Rubiks Cube. All impossible, well for me to remember.
There are apps to help you store and remember them, yay!!! great idea until you need a password to remember the password reminder service. No it's not happening and they say to think of different passwords, not to use the same one on all your accounts......please Inspector Gadgets make this possible then I'd only have to remember one!!! I could go for super spy fingerprint access or I'm sure the iphone 20abc will have retina scan access, crikey, imagine that? if I forget that thing I'll have to scrape my eyeballs out.
Siri, Cortana and Alexa might come up with a fancy solution and you'll be able to ask them to whisper your password back at you if you get close to them. Pin numbers are just the same and they usually only have 4 digits, how hard can it be?
It will get easier I'm sure, who knows maybe the password will be a thing of the past eventually but for now we'll do our best to remember or just keep the resetting services ticking over.......no password required for my next entry tomorrow so see ya there!
What to Buy Wednesday
From January 2018 I've decided to shake Wednesdays up and review products that I have purchased so we go from random thoughts to important retail therapy for the new year.
