Saw a reference to PassPack today in today’s (June 14, 2007) Chris Pirillo’s Picks. Would I use that free service? Think about it … you’re giving the passwords to a free service … does that make sense to you? Having run an Internet operation and seeing what can happen at various operations centers, I think I’ll pass. I know, I’m probably in the minority here. I mean, it’s soooo convenient, and they publish their privacy rules and practices and they swear that your data will always remain encrypted and and and. And that’s all well and good until it’s not. And then where are you?
I’m sure the service will flourish and go on to make its founders hundreds of millions of dollars and all of the passwords will remain safe and encrypted. Like the debit and credit card data at T J Maxx?
