Re: What we cannot recall cannot be a password
As mentioned in my earlier post, it is related to the cognitive phenomenon called "inerference of memory".  Should you be interested to know more, please refer to

" www.slideshare.net/HitoshiKokumai/identity-assurance-expanded-password-system "

which is my text book.

Re: What we cannot recall cannot be a password
I have trouble remembering one password, let alone many, and just when I've figured out a strong password that I can actually remember, they go and mke you change it. So I do variations, and then I can't remember which ones I've used where. 

How would images be any better?

Re: too many 6 char passwords
Dashlane applies 10,000+ rounds of PBKDF2 Salt to the user's password hashes. This makes an offline brute force attempt near impossible even if the chosen passwords are limited to 6 characters with the exception of the resourses of the NSA.

What we cannot recall cannot be a password
Being able to create many strong passwords is one thing and being able to recall all of them is another.

At the root of the password headache is the cognitive phenomena called "interference of memory", by which we cannot firmly remember more than 5 text passwords on average. What worries us is not the password, but the textual password. The textual memory is only a small part of what we remember. We could think of making use of the larger part of our memory that is less subject to interference of memory. More attention could be paid to the efforts of expanding the password system to include images, particularly KNOWN images, as well as conventional texts.

Re: Fault in the Coding
Also, unsecured how? I would imagine that there is a master password and data encryption to an extent...If not, there are many other freeware products that will perform minimal encryption and even more that can perform this unsecured.

Re: Fault in the Coding
Frequent bug fixes and updates are crucial in any type of software. Where does Dashlane store the passwords on the local device?

Re: Fault in the Coding
Re: Dashlane and others

I read various comparisons, and selected Dashlane -- for personal use. For the year I've had it it's been great. A little buggy, and not as stable on mobile as I would like, but as this point, I can't and don't want to live without it. Good customer service, and they tend do upgrades to fix issues.

Re: too many 6 char passwords
Forget about six characters, it is not complex. Six character is not that bad if you can make it numbers with special characters, I have not heard that being cracked yet.

Re: Fault in the Coding
I have not heard Dashlane, just checked it, it seems ok, you can use it in your smart phone. The main problem with it is that it is free. I wonder when it is going to get hacked.
