moderated Re: password manager


 

Everybody is vulnerable to hacking, to think otherwise is an illusion. The only person who is not is the one whose computer is not connected to the Internet and who never goes online.

Having your passwords in clear text in a Notepad file is asking for it, almost like writing them on a piece of paper and posting it to the fridge. Writing them down on a piece of paper (or putting them on a thumbdrive) and keeping that in a safe is actually pretty good, but I bet most people don’t do that, way too much trouble to open the safe each time you need one of your passwords.

Password managers aren’t perfect, but especially if  you enable two-factor authentication for the one you use it’s pretty good.

I had the same kind of file on my PC. However, my personal Gmail account was just compromised so I moved my document with all my info to a flash drive and am going to use a password manager. I’m glad you’re not vulnerable to hacking. I am not going to continue taking that chance. Thanks, Norma

I have not found a good one.  I use notepad and put site title, web, user name and password in a text file.    I use * to help with a search!  It only takes seconds to find what I am looking for and I don’t have to worry about hacking....works for me and it’s reliable.

Think about:
60 years ago, Venezuela was 4th on the world economic freedom index.
Today, they are 179th and their citizens are dying of starvation.
In just the last 10 years, Venezuela was destroyed by democratic socialism, and
Russia donated $0.00 to the Trump campaign; But Russia donated $145,600,000 to the Clinton Foundation (after Hillary sold them 20% of our uranium…illegally).
But President Trump was the one investigated! (Proverbs 29:2)
