    I once wrote a long memo about how to install toilet paper. It unroll over the front like a cleansing waterfall, never under the back because that would cause people to wipe back to front creating a chance of infection, bla, bla, bla. Nearly a full page, on my supervisors computer. CC'd it to all of his bosses and posted it in our restroom. I would install the TP over the back

    He would tear it down every day and reverse the TP.

    I would go in and post another and reverse the TP.

    I like a boss that is easy.

    Make you password as long as you want, but if they know your first pet's name...

    So I was listening to podcast with an interview of a Marine hacker (yeah, they exist) who was infiltrating ISIS - they hit this road block.
    "What?! How the f*** do I know what Mustafa's pet's name is?!"
    The target analyst leans in and says, "It's fifteen fifteen."
    "No, it's asking for a pet name!"
    "The target always uses 'fifteen fifteen' for the answers to those questions."
    "Ok.... We're in!"

    I guess I should stop using the same (predictable) obscure keywords for those.

    Eh...true, but not the problem.

There are several good ones out there that can help you maintain many complex passwords across multiple accounts and devices.

    He (and the NIST organization) also advocate against the password rotation system which leads to lower quality passwords so that they can be remembered.

    Sorry, but the user was absolutely the problem in the picture. No security practice can stop that kinda stupid (publicly posting your SSN).

    I think if I answered, it would either be with the published SSN of that dude from LifeLock, a few years ago, or I’d say, “How wealthy would I be? Several hundred million and change. (Which the OP will be also, until he gets caught for identity theft from everyone giving him their SSN.....That’s a hint and a half, folks....)”

    Thanks for your help in keeping this a great forum!

    Having trouble reconciling:

    1) Create passwords you can't remember, and store them all in one electronic cache (because you can't remember them)

    2) Anything connected to the internet can be hacked, eventually

    Congrats. You are paying attention and thinking.

    In answer, there is no such thing as 100% security. You can only use "best practices" and setup security in layers. While post-its on your monitor stops hacking over the web, it does nothing top stop your secretary/co-workers/janitors/etc from hacking your account. Moving that same post-it to your wallet adds a second layer of difficulty in getting your info. This same concept applies with physical security- there is no one perfect solution.

    Having 100s of thousands or millions of accounts for any web site means that people can do bulk hacks rather than hacking individuals- much more attractive targets. Any good password manager uses both high-end encryption and takes extreme measures to avoid having your login watched and compromised. I use two-factor authentication with mine which greatly increases hacking difficulty. Even this won't protect my info in 20 years, but I expect to have moved on to some new generation solution by then.

    That's a neat scenario and all, and I'm sure it worked. Once. Maybe.
