What’s in a name?

About this comic

So this Heartbleed thing…kinda scary stuff, yeah? It finally drove me to get a password manager (went with ‘1Password‘). Makes me feel better about it, even though I’m sure there are about 20 passwords to sites and services I don’t remember signing up for out there. Onward and upward I figure.

  1. 1Password for the win. I use Dropbox to sync it across both of my Macs, my gaming PC, and my iOS devices.

    A password manager is totally the way to go. I’ve been using LastPass for about a year. It is a perfect solution.

    I thought it was always “password1.”

    P.S. Fartbleed does sound ten times scarier.

    As with Jesse’s comments above, 1Password + Drobbox combo works great. Been using it for a couple years now across iOS devices and Macs. It was on the pricey side, but I’ve found it well worth it.

    Maybe it does take a new piece of software to get people above password entropy. In the end it’s Mission Accomplished, I guess.

    1Password – Great Choice! Ever since it’s debut I’ve considered it to be a “don’t leave home without it” application. It takes all the guesswork out of password hygiene.

    I think your FartBleed guy might be nearer the truth though. There’s no doubt that HeartBleed has/had massive potential risk but I didn’t buy the scare mongering – chafe everything everywhere. Perhaps the biggest risk will be from phishing eMails riding on the back of HeartBleed.

    Love your work – still smile when I think of the Daft Punk cartoon…

    Fartbleed…that would be the guy who shouts “Fartgas!!” 😄

    If anyone wants to see if a site is vulnerable to Heartbleed ssllabs.com is the place to go 🙂

    Dropbox. Where Dr. Condoleezza Rice is the new member of the board of directors. (https://blog.dropbox.com/2014/04/growing-our-leadership-team/)

    Lastpass has all the same features, is backed by Steve Gibson from TWIT and, it’s FREE.
