Your Password is Obsolete

The Future of the Password [infographic]

2012 was the year the password broke. I still remember how my GoDaddy account was hacked and I was about to lose my domain names for ever. With leaks and dumps become all too common, a string of characters can’t protect you anymore.

I personally started to use two factor authentication, and I highly recommend you start securing your online accounts today, make it hard for them.

Please enjoy this infographic: The future of the password :

    Hello There,
    I am just a fan of your website , And I love the writing of all the authors of your site.
    This Comment is just a concern about the Design Problem in menu bar in your site which I found earlier.
    I found this problem I am defining in Steps :
    1. I opened up your website with small screen to check the Top Menu bar navigation.
    2. then I click on Blog and then Return back to main menu.
    3. After returning back to main menu and then maximize your screen
    4. and then When I check again in blog drop down then there is big empty black screen.
    If here is option to attach thumbnail then I can show you via attaching Snapshot. but I think you get an Idea what I am talking about and hope you can appreciate my feedback to make better.

    Very detailed infographic. I stopped using the same password in all my accounts when my Facebook account was hacked two years ago. I don’t that to happen to my other accounts and to avoid further damage as well.

    Very nice infographic! I wish more applications provided 2 step verification. If anyone is looking for a stand alone secure password database check out KeePass, my personal fav.

    RE: Using a unique secure email address for password recoveries.
    What applications allow for this? I think email accounts are the only ones that give you an option of using more than one email address. I agree it’s a good idea, just not overly available.

    Very informative. Hackers don’t rest or sleep, you only know about their activities if you have some security solutions in place which alerts you whenever anyone tries to hack into your site or information, and the type of activities they are engaged in.
    My bank uses an amazing security key which provides a two factor authentication. No matter the level of tech involved, there will always be hackers and they will always find ways around it. The good news is we can always try to be a step ahead of them by following useful tips like the ones listed here.

    I started to use 2 factor authentication last year because having a blog or any website adds a lot of things to lose than simply an email account.

    In fact, something I think it would be terrible o lose, would be your Facebook account or something similar, where you’re exposed with your personal details.

    Seriously, guys, use better passwords now.

    Great infographics! But not the greatest situation. I was wondering recently about such kind of opportunity to get the pass via phone and then log in. But I guess in 2 years someone will come up with some more convenient idea about password protection. Looking forward then) )

    This is actually frightening. I use the same password for many of my accounts. Scratch that. I *used* to use the same password for many of my accounts, not anymore…
