    Fuck man. You made it sound like I was fixing to be breached on a dozen websites or something.

    I use the same password (don't kill me) for most accounts. And I have a LOT of accounts with this email address. Yet only 2 got breached.

    That makes me feel better lol

    Well, I got my e-mail account when it was still beta, and got 14 breaches.
    I've been learning about security a lot in Devrant, especially with @Condor.
    So, now I use Avira Password Manager and Last Pass so save all passwords.
    I store all my passwords in an excel encrypted file in my dropbox account.
    I have passwords for e-mails, a password for Facebook, a password for devrant, a password for important sites, and password to unimportant sites (like game sites).
    But all passwords are related, so they are easy to learn, have 3 words to pick (all with misspelling) and 5 groups of numbers. Been using this system for years and works fine for me. (Start with 2 passwords, then 3, and you will remember them all)

    @Stuxnet Na not links but Avira Identity Scanner is one very good. I discovered my password being compromised since 2015... And hibp still wont show me.

    @hypervtechnics didn't like Avira Identity Scanner
    got the e-mail on Hotmail, given 2 reports, the site I posted gave 4...
    tried Gmail twice, didn't get any e-mail, not even on spam.

    Just got them, 5 minutes later :D one more report them the site

    @GyroGearloose how are you encrypting that Excel file? Personally I'd like to suggest using GPG. Or while you're at it, give GNU Pass a try 🙂

    @Stuxnet if you're using the same email and password on many sites and it's been breached on one of them, all the others are vulnerable too. After all, when I know your credentials for one site, what stops me from trying them on others?

    @Condor excel password... Is that enough?

    @GyroGearloose not sure, I'll have to see if there's crackers out there for it and what algorithms Excel uses for this. Generally I'd say that Excel hasn't been designed to hold this kind of sensitive data though.

    @Condor well I was told that it's the most secure db when encrypted with a password, would appreciate if you find out anything about that.

    Last pass has a good security rating (I'm back to windows).. Only using avira because it came with the internet suite

    @Condor I definitely get that lol

    My important accounts have unique passwords. All the other ones are unimportant and shitty.

    Pinterest account got breached so I just straight up deleted the account lol

    Noob tip: recursivity, don't use same password to email and other sites. If password is the same, breaching will give the hackers your email password (and this can be check with a crawler)

    @GyroGearloose doesn't excel encryption use ZipCrypto? If so that's very unsecure.

    @Paramite I really don't know... That was an advise here in one of my topics about passwords and security...
    Guess I could rap it with another encryption tool, but I Wanted it to be accessed both in Windows and Android... Ideas?

    I have zero deaths on my email (a PDP reference (no, not the computer!))

    @GyroGearloose maybe store the excel in an encrypted archive, which uses AES-256
  • 1
    @Paramite Well... Do you have ideas that would work both in Windows and Android?
    Tought on a veracrypt file, since I use it on Windows already, but I don't think there is an android app for that.
  • 1
    @GyroGearloose I think a zip file with AES-256 would be enough. Or you could use TrueCrypt version 7.1a

    @Paramite Yes, my problem is for Android...
    used EDS but it stopped working in latest Android versions.

    @GyroGearloose oh yes I forgot about TrueCrypt not working on android, sorry.
Your Job Suck?
