Show Notes

Rob here again. And today’s quick tip, which came to me via my amazing friend in the security space. Kathy’s Zant. I thought we talked about password managers a little bit. There’s been a lot of concerns since the last past breach. Should I use a password manager and my personal compelling? Reason is yes.

You should. You’re never going to remember all your passwords. In my case, I have over 300 and let me tell you, without my password manager, by the way, which was bit more than before the breach. I need one, so I’m going to continue to use the password manager. We’re all concerned what happens is somebody like LastPass gets breached again. What do we do and how do we deal with changing all our passwords?

 So Kathy Zant and I were chatting last week and Kathy had a great tip that was so compelling. I want to give full credit to her. This isn’t mine, but I did want to share it with you, the listener, and that was you should store your passwords in the password manager. With the exception of a secret phrase or key combination after the password, which is the same for every password. And that only you know. And you memorize that.

So let me give you an example. If you have a Gmail account for the sake of argument, your password is ABC D. And then it’s orange 1234 pound. And then you have a. Microsoft OneDrive Password Edge GHK Orange 1234 pound. And the orange 1234 pounds you do not store in the password manager. You only keep that in your head, so that way. Even if your password manager gets breached. They do not have their full password. So I’ve actually implemented that process.

Thank you Kathy, and I suggest you to too. It’s a great idea. So that’s a quick tip thanks to Kathy’s aunt for sharing that with me. In a conversation we had last week.

And Rob Cairns , CEO chief creator of amazing ideas at stunning digital Martin. Have a great day. Bye bye for now.
