My personal security policy is that no one can know my password, not even ME!

Sounds like military level security. You change it every 30 days and you don't write it down anywhere. Even civilians have to follow the protocol when on DoD systems. Hillary would have never survived as a normal citizen soldier, she would have ended up doing push ups until she puked to use secure systems properly. That or sent off to federal prison. Following the rules is just not her style, she's a thug after all.

This is a complete and utter bollocks security policy. What's more secure, a series of Password1!, Password2! derivatives or a tough fucker like Chek2frecAl+ that you choose ONCE? At least NIST agrees with me now

BTW, the password above was generated by apg on Linux, probably there are Windows apps for pronouncable-password generation too. Can't be arsed to look for them at the moment though.

Thankfully, NIST no longer recommends mandatory password changes as best practice, because time isn't the enemy of passwords and people fall back to using crap stub passwords that they iterate on.

There were some depositions of IT from her tenure as secretary of state that described how they tried to get her a computer in her office, but they couldn't make it meet her needs because she couldn't remember passwords or use her email through the secure system. They ended up giving her an entire area on the floor so that she could use her coveted blackberries to access her emails in the non-secure area. Just completely bananas.

However, to reset your password for a US military system (at least in my day) all you needed was your birthdate, maybe your SSN, and your name. I never bothered to remember any passwords because resetting them was just as easy.

If it's saved in the browser, this utility (WebBrowserPassView) by NirSoft will show it.

Or one could simply go to browser settings and look it from there...

I did that with my first bank account pin when i was young and slighty dumber. Oh what fun.
