> Password approach: This is interesting... https://masterpassword.app/what/
Agreed. I've heard of similar systems before, where all your passwords are generated from a master password (rather than stored). It does sound interesting/cool
I've never used that sort of system myself for two reasons:
- Compromising your master password gives an attacker access to all sites without the need for access to a device with your stored password.
- Changing your master password means changing all
That's the problem. But with some current cloud sync change master pwd and they wipe the DB. When is there a perfect solution? Lol yeah changing every pwd would hurt.
@codesections @ironmonkey I had spun up my own similar solution years ago but it couldn't cope with weird password requirements. I don't know if this does but I would always have a site wanting one extra special character or a character would be forbidden. Some even choked when passwords were too long 🤦♂️
