Having a relationship with computer(s) and internet for more then 1-2 years, leaves you with one thing for sure. Lots of user-names and pass-words. The exact number depends on the duration of a person’s date with the machine. And that’s quiet natural too. If you are repeatedly expecting services from a service provider like E-Mail, blogging you need to have a permanent foot-mark out there which only an “account” can provide. Username and the corresponding password, are only the keys to access that “account”. But it’s no less than a brain-transplant-surgery to remember them. Requires a lot of grey area which most of us, don’t have in excess ;-)
Scenario: During the moments I’ve spent in front of the monitor, I have accumulated 44, and increasing, number of accounts and equal number of passwords in my share of things which are to be remembered always. But, un-fortunately, as I am not from mars, I used to constantly forget the two hand-in-hand keys. So, I jotted all of those which I remembered, on seperate .txt files and packed all of them in a folder. Encrypting the folder has a different story altogether written below. Read on…
Encryption: It was and is, an stepwise affair
1) I password protected the master folder through Win-Zip.
2) Having placed this .zip file into an mountable virtual drive, I password-protected it too, using Paragon Encrypted Disk.
3) Placed the resultant .crd file far into a C:/Windows directory and that too hidden.
4) Kept quiet about it.
@God: Please make sure that no-one, literally no-one gets past my 4-cycle security system.
