How many characters do you reccomend?
How can I make it complicated yet easy to memorize?
How many different passwords do you reccomend?
Should I have my shopping password different from lets say a fitness website?
I recently got my account broken into and now after creating new accounts I need some tips
Any suggestions for password manager?
I dont mind lastpass but dont want to spend that much, let alone more, android support was killer.
are there any other good options for both android and linux?
Needs at least 35 characters 14 of them should be symbols the rest a mix of numbers and capital and lower case letters. I pwrsonally have 17 different 47 character passwords following this model
Well why not use this then?
You have obscurity for the sake of it. You have random characters,that you're not going to remember. And who wants to spend 5 minutes typing their password to login to their email and spend 2 minutes using it.
because mine is easy for me to remember because i came up with it... fortey percent dollar sandwich. after each word, 40 % $, and numbers substituting letters where it's possible.
Were not making passwords that have to pass the turing test.Just logical secure passwords that dones require 10 chinease boys computing pi based on the current time,date,and your geolocation
You're autistic, but you're right.
If people weren't forced to use different kind of characters, most of them would just use a simple chain ranging from 'a' to 'z' as password(not even considering upper cases as an option because people are lazy) , making it really easy to crack most of them.
The calculation of bits of entropy there are wrong. They assume you know the format of the password which you do not and noone ever addresses that when the comic is brought up. Still, the horse password is better.
alright i mean do you seriously need people to tell you shit that is just fucking common sense?
i remember you from your last thread "should i tie my shoes with the loop, swoop, and pull method or bunny ears? why is one better than the other?"
>How can I make it complicated yet easy to memorize
>easy to memorize
>therefore easy to brute force guess by crackers
No, your clever pattern for coming up with passwords is not clever. Yes, people have added your pattern to their salt cracking programs.
53 bits is sufficient for passwords to websites that normies visit. Google, facebook, etc will lock you out before you get anywhere near the password.
To defend offline systems like encrypted files a longer string of words would be needed. I use a 15-word string that I've hidden within a non-descript document and printed out.
Such an attack against a large corporation would require alot of time and effort. If you regularly change your password, the window for them to decrypt your password and use it would be very minimal.
My passwords are passwords that take time to rehearse, but depending on the account sways its length and complexity. For example for my encrypted drive I use a 50 length password that consists of random characters and the character previous and after is never the same as the current. So for example I have letter, symbol, number, letter(caps), symbol, number... I never use the same character within a 10 character chunk. Will take around 2.6 billion years for a supercomputer to break.
My strat is pick a phrase that's not associated with you and use the first letters of the phrase.
Go to the store, pick up bread and milk.
Then I throw in numbers of a not random sequence but unrelated to my other passwords and unrelated to my phrase. We'll subtract by 2,then 3 starting with 18.
Caps the first bits.
Add specials by using the number scheme (subtacting by 2,3, so then 4 on this pass..18,16,13,09) and dropping shift to make them special, put that on the end, or front.
Boom. Pretty random, easy to memorize.
Have a nonsensical base phrase of 6+ characters. Then for each service/website/game take 4 letters from its name in a specific positions and add them to specific positions in the base phrase. This way you'll have unique, nonsesical, 10+ character password for everything and you can remember them easy.
