Every now and then I am prompted to enter my password so I can view my camera. Why isn’t there more people complaining about this?
To be able to enter my password off the top of my head, means I’m using a password that I’ll have to remember. THAT is the complete opposite of using a secure password!
Since the Target hack sent my user name and password to the black market, I’ve created random and impossible to remember passwords for every account I have. I use an encrypted program to retrieve my password when needed and often use the random key-generator to make a new random password when prompted by some sites.
Bottom line, it is a pain in the rear for people that are using secure passwords to have to enter at random just to use their product. And looks bad for any company encouraging using easy to remember and enter at random passwords.
I propose that Wyze gets ahead on this issue and addresses their software asking for users to enter their passwords more than once on the initial setup. Users want to be able to use their camera when they open the app on their phone. Not have to find a computer, open an encrypted file, and then type in a crazy password. (Tip for others using this method of securing their passwords… Avoid zeros and o’s, I’s and ones, and other things you see difficult to distinguish. A lot of mental anguish can be saved!)
