Is your PIN easy? Or hard?

    Not enough Van Halen fans? 5150 didn't make the top 10.

    And 22.802% percent chose 12345 as a 5 digit PIN. :eek: :D

    How 'bout "Jenny867-5309!"?

    That's not my dumbest pin, at least I don't think it is...

    Seriously, the more complicated an organization insists a pin must be, (caps, lowercase, special characters, numbers, etc), the harder it is for me to keep track of the pin without writing it on my arm with a Sharpie. Demands for increasingly complicated pins result in lost pins or pins recorded in obvious ways so we dumb-bunnies can hold our lives together.

    There's got to be an easier way!

    KeePass Password Safe ;)

    The homepage has a blurb from some guy named Bruce Schneier.

    5150 used to be my pin number for our electronic charting program. It was my pin untill someone in QA caught onto it and said that wasnt kosher, despite that the medical director was litterally ROFLHAO.

    5150 is a code used locally for psych calls/patients.

    Since when does QA have access to people's pins? I would have jacked his (expletive deleted) up over a tree branch.

    That is a security violation.

    That would be first generation Zoll ePCR when they were "working the bugs" out. We don't use ePCR anymore due to Zoll having customers do there alpha and beta testing along with the privilege of paying to do so. The pin number was one of the "bugs" they couldn't or wouldn't fix.

    Now my roaming profile(windows 7) has credentials for our electronic charting platform and the pin/password is secured so that can't happen again. I dont have to worry about anyone guessing my password/pins due to the rubics I use to generate them.

    We use EMSCharts. There were some bugs, but password/pin was never one of them.
