A Better Password Problem – Premium

Brad Sams

Several weeks ago, I was trying to login to the Hilton app on my phone and could not remember the password. I knew the password was saved in Chrome but trying to guess what it was, I locked my account after too many failed attempts and had to reset the password which means that I had to re-enter it in Chrome as well.

This is a mild inconvenience but with every single service seemingly compromised each day and I know that I reuse passwords across different services; it was time to finally get serious about changing my workflow.
