MacVoices #16088: Joe Kissell Takes Control of Your Passwords For The Second Time

In a world focused so much on security, Joe Kissell‘s latest, Take Control of Your Passwords, Second Edition, couldn’t have come at a better time. Joe provides updates on two-factor authentication, including Apple’s own new option, and  comments on some of the recent password solutions you might have seen making the rounds on the tech news sites. Find out why you simply cannot select a random character or word password on your own, how you might be able to use your face as your password, and physical objects that can add security to your passwords. Who do you trust for password storage and security? How do you determine the strength of your passwords? Find out from Joe.
