    It is a fairly common scenario.

    Worst case scenario is you have multiple accounts that share the same password. Compromise one they are all gone. You also have no control over the admins who you are "trusting" with this information.

    Having strong protection of a vault with multiple ids/passwords is much more secure, especially since you can control where you store the vault (e.g. heavily encrypted fault tolerant storage).

    Actually: A program for password is the correct way. That is what we IT security expert recommend. Every single site you use with a password: have a unique generated password from the program. You don't need to remember that, only the master password. 1password for example.

    But...
    Howard said that his master password was an uncommon word from a dictionary + a couple of digit's. This is something that can be brute forced very quickly.

    I also guess that Howard/Robin don't have login passwords on their macs. They both talked about how Safari started each time the started their computers. That sounds like they go straight into desktop. An absolutely "no no" in security. The funniest thing is that Howard have a fill time IT employee. It cant be IBM Jeff? The person who manages Howard's IT infrastructure is incompetent.

    No password on their iPads/iPhones. Everything is unencrypted and open. Not even properly encrypted WiFi.

    (I work often as a security consultant. I usually run crack on all users password during the night at work to check how safe users passwords are. And 20-30% are cracked each time. Including IT management/bosses password. They use passwords like: summer and other stupid stuff. Another popular was Horsecock. The default password from our PC support)

    Howard has a special program for passwords. It's the same one Brett used when Bubba was still on H101. I think it was called Notebook.

    The word is probably Aardvark or something that would be on the first page of the dictionary.

    The fucker is too lazy to turn the page anymore than he had to to find a word
