This unclassified syndrome is very real. Creating passwords strong enough to pass security measures gives us all a headache. Not only that, finding out how to store and remember them is even more challenging.
We’ve all experienced it. So, what can you do to overcome password syndrome?
Why it’s so hard to create strong passwords
It’s imperative to create longer, more complex passwords that are unique to each of our password and internet accounts. The more stipulations an account has on their password requirements, the more difficult it is to create and remember your login information.
Common password requirements are:
- Between 8-20 characters
- At least 3 special characters
- Hasn’t been used in the last three password creations
- Isn’t a variation of a dictionary word
You can see how it’s easy to develop password syndrome.
While it’s important that we satisfy each of these components for the safety of our files, it can be daunting to think of the passwords and even worse remember them.
Storing passwords is part of the trouble
Due to the complexity of passwords, it’s impossible for us to memorize them. The logical step is to save our information somewhere that is accessible. The problem is, no matter how strong your password is, if it’s stored insecurely, you’re still susceptible to being hacked.
Storing passwords as sticky notes on your computer are easily seen. Emailing your passwords to yourself means if your email account is hacked, your passwords will be compromised. And, writing passwords down makes it easy to misplace or lose your information.
And, using password managers aren’t safe because there is no way of knowing how safe the program holding your password is.
The only entirely secure way to handle passwords is by using a program like EZPD where passwords are never stored.
As a result, people are still using bad passwords
The more frustrated we get, or the more difficult it is to achieve standards, the less we try.
Users often use easy to remember (and hack) passwords such as “123456”, “111111” or “password”. Even using ways to obfuscate commonly used words like “password” to “p@ssw0rd”, are still easily hackable.
If a mass amount of users continue to rely on easily identified passwords, cybercriminals will continue to hack our information.
So, what’s the compromise?
Find a solution that creates unhackable passwords and offers a better alternative to storing them on your computer, physically, or in the cloud. Like EZPD.
EZPD is a password generation and regeneration software that keeps users protected from the ever-evolving world of cybercrime. EZPD’s proprietary algorithm is the first of its kind. It operates from a license file which is specific to an individual’s computer. And, no one can use your EZPD account without the license file.
With EZPD, users can generate passwords up to 94 characters long. Users can also specify if their passwords need to include special characters and numbers, and which to include or exclude to satisfy password requirements.
Users don’t need to rack their brain trying to generate a unique password. EZPD does it for you and all you need to do it copy and paste where ever you need security. Our users commonly use EZPD to protect:
- Internet accounts
- Password protected documents
- Secure servers
- Application software
After you’ve created a unique, complex password, you can delete EZPD’s program and license file from your computer to erase tracks of your password. When you need to access your password again (or generate a new one) you can redownload EZPD’s program and license file from the link provided to you upon sign up.
You can redownload and regenerate the same password an unlimited about of times.
With EZPD your passwords are never saved. In fact, you never even have to make them visible. It’s the most secure option on the market. Learn more about EZPD’s free trial download today.
