Coming up with and remembering passwords can be a challenge. PasswordCard offers a free, simple solution that leaves you a hard copy of your passwords.
The credit card -sized card fits easily in your wallet or purse.
When you arrive at http://www.passwordcard.org/en, you’ll see that it’s a pretty simple set-up.
A card number is generated for you. Make sure to save that card number somewhere. You can use it to regenerate the card if you ever lose it.
You can choose to have an area with only digits (great if you need PIN numbers) or to include symbols.
Then you can print the card, laminate it and keep it in your wallet. Here’s how it works. You pick a symbol, color, and length for your password. Then choose to go
left or right. For example, if I needed a 10-letter password, I could choose pink for a color and musical note for a symbol. Then I would go 10 to the right for a password of WWyVGGKkCD.
I could write down Pink-Music-Note-10-Right somewhere. Even if someone came across it, without my specific card, they wouldn’t be able to figure out the password. You can also randomly generate a new card at any time.
At one time Android and iPhone apps were available for PassWord Card to offer a paperless alternative but it looks as if the app doesn’t work well with newer phones, so I can’t recommend using it.
