I hate passwords

Valentines day is tomorrow.  I should write about love.

Instead, I am going to write about hate.

I hate passwords.  

Hate, hate, hate, double hate.  Loooathe entirely.

I am older than the Internet.  When I was a kid, spies had passwords.  That was about it.  

Now there is a password for everything.  Okay, I get it.  To bank online, I need a password.   

But… when I am ready to launch birds at pigs, I need a password?  Really?  Please.

Oh well.  I guess the world has changed.  Fruit now lives in fear of ninjas.  Birds are angry.  And, we are all spies.  

Fortunately, a couple of websites have stepped in to help.  

Personally, I like LastPass: lastpass.com.  

But, One Password looks good too: onepassword.com

Thanks to these guys, instead of thousands of passwords, all you need now is one password.  Both of these websites will store all of your passwords behind one master password.

It takes a little time to set these sites up on your computer.  But, believe me, it’s worth it. 

Save yourself some time.  Save yourself from frustration.  Take some time today to create an account with one of these websites.

Happy Saturday!
