On August 7, 2023 Jim Calloway’s Law Practice Tips Blog featured Sharon Nelson’s, John Simek’s, and Michael Maschke’s article “Passwords May Be Extinct Sooner Than You Think”. Jim Calloway is the Director of the Oklahoma Bar Association’s Management Assistance Program.
“Lawyers have hated passwords since passwords first made their appearance,” some of my colleagues recently wrote. So true.
Emerging AI tools mean it is easier to crack passwords. So, the standard advice for strong passwords is now at least 15 characters, with requirements of upper-case and lower-case letters, numbers, symbols and maybe a drop of blood (OK, not really.) The challenge is most of us cannot remember that long of a string of random characters and creating passwords we can remember, typically by inserting dictionary words within them, makes them easier to crack. From my point of view, the only rational solution is a password manager. The good thing about password management is that as you get more login credentials saved, you benefit from quicker logins.
