How many online accounts do you have? Chances are very high that you have more than 10 online accounts. According to one survey average Briton has 26 online accounts. Now it becomes next to impossible to create and remember strong passwords for all those accounts. Most users use weak passwords because they are easy to remember, And many people use one password for many different online accounts. Security guys can preach all they want but ease of use and less to remember the better mentality wins all time and every time, A cold fact!
Here I propose a radically different solution to the password management problem.
You will have to remember only one password. Can you remember one difficult password? Most people will be able to do it. We will call it "Master Password". This one "Master Password" will let you manage all those different online accounts! One "Master Password" will let you use super secure passwords, all very different from eachother, for your online accounts no matter how many accounts you have! Wanna try?
Here you go, Just download the attached script "pmpm_cli", Save it somewhere in your $PATH, chmod 755 it, And you are ready to go!
Wait a second, How to use this "PMPM" thing I hear you say!
In short you remember one secure "Master Password", run "pmpm_cli" script, enter "Master Password", online account name (vsido.org, gmail.com, sourceforge.net, github.com etc. etc.), your user name for that particular account, password length and voila! you get your super secure password copied to your clipboard. Once you are done using (read pasting) the password, the script will remove it from the clipbord. Nothing is stored anywhere. There are no databases, nothing. All you need when using another computer and/or another distribution is this script. No need to save-copy-carry anything. Just run this script whenever you need your password for one of your accounts. You can use it on any computer running gnu-linux. Just one 10 KB script and one password for managing-securing as many online accounts as you want! Need more help-info? Worry not just run the script "pmpm_cli" and use the inbuilt "Help" function for more info and usage examples. And in any case I'm always here in VSIDO forums so you can ask any question-query here and you will get any help you need.
