    Default Password survey

    I require a password to..
    -log in to my email account
    -log in to my computer
    -configure my router
    -enter my bathroom

    -What's the number of passwords you use?
    -1 or 2
    -2 to 5
    -6 to 20
    -20 or more

    Following safety practices apply to me: Check those that apply.
    [ ] -I don't do anything of value with the computer, so I don't need to bother with the passwords.
    [ ] -I use different passwords in different places, so if one place is hacked, the password they find can't be used to hack in my account anywhere else.
    [ ] -When I use some public computers, I clear cookies, I use the settings that disable from storing my passwords to websites, etc.
    [ ] -I memorize my most valuable passwords
    [ ] -I use so easy passwords that I don't ever have to write them down.

    I know some of the following concepts: information entropy, dictionary attack, social engineering, phishing
    -none
    -one or two
    -three or 4

    I know some of the following concepts: md5, blowfish, insertion attack, rootkit
    -none. Oh, one of those is a spikey fish.
    -one or two
    -three or 4

    Password to my most important email account resembles something like this:
    -letmein
    -Peanuts75
    -N/E-535&
    -Zs124Hw8(121,!0

    Password to a online joke site You've almost forgotten about resembles something like this:
    -haha
    -jokes
    -N/E-535&
    -Zs124Hw8(121,!0

    Which of these describe your attitude towards security?
    -I've got nothing to hide
    -Average person has little to fear from hackers, but it's cool not to spread all your information out in the open.
    -There's echelon, there's ad trackers.. Google has incredible information about us. Trying to keep my privacy is a losing game.
    -Citizens should employ strong cryptography in their normal day-to-day dealings in the internet, even if just to piss off the governments.

    You admit to these security faults:
    -I use unnecessarily strong passwords, and I memorize them.
    -I write down my passwords and keep them at my desk.
    -I use the same password over and over again.
    -I derive the passwords from my name, name of the site I'm visiting, etc.

    What's your type?

    Do you think your password & security habits reflect your type?

    None of the above

    -haha
    -jokes
    -N/E-535&
    -Zs124Hw8(121,!0 I can't remember something that looks like that. I must have typed it randomly and then immediately forgotten it...

    -I derive the passwords from my name, name of the site I'm visiting, etc.

    What's your type? the type that needs immediate access to the bathroom??? Um. I mean isfp.

    Do you think your password & security habits reflect your type? Maybe. I don't really know.

    All these surveys in The Bonfire.... You guys know too much >_>

    I'm a paranoid person. My passwords are complicated and I never write them down anywhere. I also have different passwords for everything.


    I had to laugh, once... A forum I moderated got mass-spammed by like 500 long-time users. As it turns out, the names that had been hacked were all Username/passwords that matched. Example, if i made my password Patches. I couldn't believe that there were that many people who used the same name as password.

    I'd rather not express information regarding my password/s.

    I've bolded what applies to me.


    I require a password to..
    -log in to my email account Yes
    -log in to my computer No
    -configure my router No
    -enter my bathroom I should require a password for others to enter my bathroom.

    -What's the number of passwords you use?
    -1 or 2
    -2 to 5
    -6 to 20
    -20 or more

    [ ] -I memorize my most valuable passwords
    [ ] -I use so easy passwords that I don't ever have to write them down. (For some sites, yes. For sites where I have to reveal highly sensitive info, I pick more complex ones which require writing down.)

    I know some of the following concepts: information entropy, dictionary attack, social engineering, phishing
    -none
    -one or two (social engineering and phishing)
    -three or 4

    -Peanuts75
    -N/E-535&
    -Zs124Hw8(121,!0

    What's your type? INTP

    Do you think your password & security habits reflect your type?
    I highly value privacy over the internet. Could be an introvert thing
    I have generally good security habits. They could be improved more by not duplicating passwords anywhere and using more complex ones than what I already have.

    -log in to my email account
    -log in to my computer
    -configure my router



    -What's the number of passwords you use?
    -20 or moreAbout 60 I guess, for different systems, accounts, sites etc.

    Following safety practices apply to me: Check those that apply.
    [ ] -I don't do anything of value with the computer, so I don't need to bother with the passwords.
    [X] -I use different passwords in different places, so if one place is hacked, the password they find can't be used to hack in my account anywhere else.
    [X] -When I use some public computers, I clear cookies, I use the settings that disable from storing my passwords to websites, etc.
    [ ] -I memorize my most valuable passwords (I try to memorize them but I have a physical print of most of the passwords, too.)
    [ ] -I use so easy passwords that I don't ever have to write them down.

    Password to my most important email account resembles something like this:
    N/E-535&

    Password to a online joke site You've almost forgotten about resembles something like this:
    Somewhere between "jokes" and "N/E-535&"

    Which of these describe your attitude towards security?
    -Citizens should employ strong cryptography in their normal day-to-day dealings in the internet, even if just to piss off the governments.

    You admit to these security faults:
    -I use unnecessarily strong passwords, and I memorize them. Partial fault. I do this to some passwords.
    -I write down my passwords and keep them at my desk. Partial fault. Well not at my desk, but somewhere. I think have assessed my risks correctly, though, so I'm not unsafe.

    What's your type?
    Fairly certainly ENTx.

    Do you think your password & security habits reflect your type?
    I dont know, control freak, tech savvy, and/or haphazard. Possibly so.

    I gotta tell you something about cryptography.

    I wanted to get a partner for a tech project, but couldn't first find how to make a good contract of it. I had wanted to share my information, but I wanted the exact information to be legally recognized in our contract. Of course, the information (several megabytes) couldn't fit on a physical contract in paper form. Some kinds of electronic formats could be counterfeited.

    Solution? I put my information in an archive, signed it electronically, and included the sign and my public key in the contract.

    It's impossible to produce that information without having provided the original archive, proving that I really did give the information and I have the rights for it.

    All of these tools are available for free. There's really no stopping for a better managed information security.
