New Technology, Online Tools | No Comments »

If you’re familiar with Web 2.0, then you’re familiar with creating usernames and passwords. Ideally, you’d like to use the same combination you’ve always been using for every account, but what if you’re a little late to the party and your “go-to” username is taken? What then? Well, you have to come up with and, even worse, REMEMBER a new set of login information which can really add up Enter Passpack »

PasspackPassPack is “a tool that protects your passwords everywhere you go. You can save all your pins and logins in one single place, and access them from home, the office or anywhere else! There is nothing to install or carry around.”

Commentary: Having dealt with my fair share of teachers that have trouble remembering one set of login information much less five, I am thankful that PassPack exists as a viable solution… That is, if they can get past the security. PassPack has implemented what they call a “packing key” which is a user-generated phrase or sentence that they use for verification in addition to the standard username and password. Unlike normal password systems, this “packing key” cannot be retrieved, so if you forget it, your information is gone. (The website even has you acknowledge that your information will be lost if you are unable to enter a correct “packing key”.)
