I manage a lot of sites – some my own, some for my clients. And the one thing they all have in common is that they require a password to allow me to get in to the administration area.
How can I possibly remember that many passwords, let alone which one goes with which site?
I’ll tell you how.
Lately the amount of SPAM in my inbox has increased dramatically – up to 120 or so SPAMs a day.
This is not only a waste of my time and bandwidth, it makes me very concerned about who has my e-mail address and how they got it.
Do you know how passwords actually work?
Given all the recent concern about some very prominent sites being hacked, this is a very pertinent topic.
I hesitate to use my business e-mail for accessing online content, where the value I am getting is an individual item or temporary access.
But many sites will not grant access without a valid e-mail. What to do?
