Valuable things should be kept in your Wallet!

Passwords should be protected, they are valuable, so save them in a wallet!

Are you still using generating passwords by putting two non related words together with a symbol?  Like flower:child? This is the old lame way we were taught back when AOL and Compuserve were the newest kids on the internet.  How about updating your security in 2010.  I would like to introduce you to Wallet.

It is a simple encrypted storage system that you can safely use to store your passwords and other valuable information (like WiFi Keys).  You could use the Mac’s Keychain Access.app (located in the Utilities Folder) to save passwords but I have found the Wallet to be much easier.   The Wallet has a password generator that you can modifiy to make passwords to your liking.  Try this password on for size compared to the one’s you have been using. 53B92r64124  Now that’s a password!  You can have a custom password like that for every site you go to.  The wallet allows you to store a site’s username, password and url (+ anything else you might need to remember) and click on a simple link to launch Safari to load that page (you don’t have to fill in the blanks).  Quite an improvement in security.

Not all things in life are free, the Wallet will set you back $20 but the peace of mind is worth it.  I use it to store my wife’s passwords.  When she can’t remember her passwords, I just tell her that I have them stored in my Wallet.  Kind of nice to be useful!
