Lock and Code S1Ep9: Strengthening and forgetting passwords with Matt Davey and Kyle Swank

This week on Lock and Code, we discuss the top security headlines generated right here on Labs and around the Internet. In addition, we talk to Matt Davey, chief operations optimist at 1Password, and Kyle Swank, a member of 1Password’s security team, about—what else—passwords.

We may know it’s important to have a strong, non-guessable, lengthy password, and yet we still probably all know someone who writes their password on a post-it, which is then affixed literally onto their machine. On today’s episode, we discuss secure passwords, password alternatives, and the future—and potential death—of passwords.

Tune in for all this and more on the latest episode of Lock and Code, with host David Ruiz.
