A nice way to deal with password security requirements

I first posted this article to facebook in the summer of 2014. A client’s email had been hacked and she was frustrated with having to change her password again. Password management can be tricky. To assist I began setting her passwords with a combination of encouraging words and symbols like <3 that often satisfy the ‘letters numbers and symbols’ requirements for today’s strong passwords.

Sure looks weird around here....

Remember the website I had 10 years ago that said ‘The Shoemakers’ children never have any shoes?’ I’m here again to say I’m too damn busy with projects to make this website prettier for now, but I had to disable those items that were not serving my site.

 

Don’t use old tech, kids! Just like I tell my clients. If you let your site get out of date, it’s not secure.
