The p@ss™ key fob lets you generate hard to guess, unique passwords for each of your online accounts.. and you won't have to remember any of them! Just 'dial in' using one simple rule, and you can recall every password on demand. If one of the many websites or companies you deal with gets hacked, their passwords will be useless for any of your other accounts. Your email and banking accounts will be safe since you'll have a semi-random, unique password for every site you use, which have no clear relation to each other.
The p@ss™ was inspired by my wife and her friend (my unfortunate case studies), whose email accounts were both hacked not once, but twice, within a month of each other; and by my friends and co-workers who complain about how difficult it is to manage all of their accounts.
The problem I kept seeing was that everyone I knew had given up on good password security, using just one or two simple passwords and, perhaps even worse, using them across all of their accounts.
There had to be a better way to make secure passwords that anyone can use.
I know how hard it is to manage all the passwords in one's daily life. I also know not everyone is tech-savvy and passwords are a real pain. So I thunk and I thunk until my thinker was sore: how can people make better, more secure passwords, and how can they possibly remember all those secure passwords for all their different devices and website accounts? Then I realized the solution is not to remember passwords at all.
The p@ss™ key chain fob is the low-tech, simple to use, always on-hand solution for making hard to guess -- but easy to recall -- passwords, for all your online web accounts and personal electronic devices.
The p@ss™ is made of high-quality stainless steel with etched lettering for high durability. The hollow cylinder can also hold pills or important contact information -- handy if you ever misplace it or your keys!
And, most importantly: it makes you look like a super-spy fiddling with it while in line at the supermarket, or when bored in meetings. :p
Q: What if I lose my p@ss™?
A: Included with the unit is a sheet with the complete symbol set of your fob, to be placed in safe storage. If you lose your product you can refer to the note in an emergency. Also included is a contact form you should fill in with your information and leave rolled up inside the fob cylinder so someone can return your keys & fob to you should you ever lose them.
Q: Won't other people have the same rings and thus create the same passwords if they log into the same sites I do?
A: This part is up to you: the 'dial in' rule. Included are a few example rules you can choose to 'dial in' your passwords based on the website, company or account to which you are logging in. Use your imagination and you can come up with your own simple and unique rule to use! You can unscrew the chain and re-order the included rings however you like; finally, every production run of the p@ss™ is made with a unique set of rings.
Q: Why not use an electronic password wallet?
A: Why not? Sure... if you thought of this question, that might be a perfectly fine solution for you. But what if your smartphone's battery dies? Or you can't get to the PC where you store your e-wallet? Did you back up your e-wallet? Is it up to date? What if you just don't 'get' those new-fangled teleo-smart-phone thingies (like certain people we all know... Hi Mom & Dad!)? Besides, an e-wallet can't hold your heart pills, or a note directing someone to return your lost keys to you. :)
