Registrar's Annoying Requirement: "Must Create New Password Every 6 Months"

 7:13 pm on Mar 18, 2009 (gmt 0)

I just received an email from Go Daddy telling me that I will need to have a new password for each account (i have several) every 6 months. While they are doing this for "my protection" now I will have to deal with even more passwords.

Does anyone know of a server based password keeper? or some way to share between the three computers I use regularly, the employees PCs and my new netbook I am going to buy

That sounds very dangerous.
I'm looking into RoboForm2Go, but I believe roboform with goodsync will do it for you.

Use your existing passwords but add -1, -2, etc. each time you have to change them.

I've long thought that requiring users to regularly change passwords is bonkers - it forces people to write them down which, of course, makes them less secure.

Maybe you should move your business elsewhere.

Look to Keepass which you can run from a USB memory stick, and make as many backup copies as you like.

Do make as many different categories as you can.

I didn't realize that KeePass would run from a memory stick. Thanks for the idea.

Yeah. It doesn't need any other resources other than the .exe file, your database file, and the .ini (or equivalent) file to operate.

Here's another endorsement for using KeePass on a memory stick. It's great. Like g1 stated, use lots of categories cause it makes everything much easier to find. And indeed I have everything important stored in it and carry it with me everywhere. Sure wish it ran on an iPhone.
