Some of us are more geeky than others and use password software like KeePass or other, similar tools (I have KeePass on my desktop and laptop, syncing to a password database stored in Dropbox so that I always have a secure, backed-up copy of all of my passwords – aren’t I a teacher’s pet?!).
But my favourite tech blogger Amit Agarwal has another system that he created himself that you might want to try.
The tool is called Secure Passwords and it generate unique and strong passwords for your various web accounts using using the secure bcrypt algorithm.
The advantages are that your passwords aren’t stored anywhere, the passwords are hashed using bcrypt (irreversible) and all you have to do is remember is one master pass phrase. The password generator works on both desktop and mobile screens.
To be honest, I’m not sure how it all works, but I implicitly trust Amit, so if he reckons it’s good enough for public consumption then I reckon it is too.
