Currently i'm using 1Password, but I was wondering what does the xim community use?

I use "MyBrain". It's secure and no one can hack it.

That "natural curve" you [roads] are talking about was me taking a wild guess what the game was doing (which was completely wrong of course).

I use a simple little system, where I have an easy to remember, but long (16+ character), and then tag on two or three characters that are unique to the URL or application.

 So:

myreallylongpassword!xim

 Studies have shown that we make passwords harder than they need to be to remember, but easy to break by brute force.

myreallylongpassword!xim > p4s$w0rD

String four or so words together, randomly, or just a short sentence. Add special character. Done.

To add to that, I love this little site.

https://howsecureismypassword.net/

It's not a gold standard for security, but it gets you close enough.

myreallylongpassword!xim would take 4 sextillion years.
p4s$w0rD would take 3 days.

The only thing you could beat is the fat guy to the front of the BK line.

Could have used this before. Forgot my password to these forums and my old hotmail account isn't receiving email from xim.

One tends to use the same password at several sites. 1password prevents this.

Very true.

But if you used a similar system to what I suggested, you wouldn't need 1password.

I'm just hesitant to trust my security to anyone else other than the company or organization with whom I'm interacting. Not to mention it forces a sort of reliance on 1password. What happens if I can't use there service? I'm stuck needing to use their access.

you aren't using their service...

The database of passwords is stored locally/dropbox/icloud and then encrypted with your master password...then it stores all password data...

Example passwords ^^

You choose the number of symbols, digits you want in the password and the number of characters.

I understand how it works. My point is that you need their program if you want to access any site or application that uses their generated password data. It forces reliance when it isn't, IMO, necessary.
