From one password to another

No Comments

From being a set of personal questions for validating the identity, the self-reset password of a company has moved to a self-service password mechanism. You have a secondary password that you can use to gain temporary entry to reset your main credentials.

Brilliant. Absolutely Genius.

I cant imagine how forgetting a password you use everyday or has just set will make the chances of remembering another password that you barely use much more likely. I guess if one will write it down on a post-it it will be easier to retrieve. But why wasn’t it done for the everyday password?

This is the reason I keep stuff in a password manager like LastPass. If I wilI forget a manually entered password then I have the PW manager’s password (which I dont use anywhere else) to fall back on.
