1 Quick tip about security questions

By 1 februari 2017No Comments

You know the drill: you create an account somewhere, and you need to fill in the questions:

“Where did you meet your SO?”, “What is your mothers maiden name?” etc.

When answered truthfully, these can be guessed.

My quick tip for those: In your password manager, there is almost always a “notes” section.

  • Copy-paste the question in the notes.
  • Generate a password, 16 characters or so long
  • Paste it as answer in the¬†form
  • Paste it into the password manager as answer

who knows I was born in a./0*$@lw89fa !?

That one thing to keep really secure is still your password manager file and its passphrase.
