How Safe Is It?
- NeedMyPassword uses 256 bit encryption. 256 bit encryption would take hundreds if not thousands of years of brute force and Department of Defense level computers and know-how to crack. The NeedMyPassword encryption system works only 1 way meaning that all data can only be accessed by the author. If the author were to ever forget their security answer all of their data would have to be reset and could never be recovered. Even if a hacker did ever manage to find and hack the database, the information would be useless without each members' encryption key. So a hacker or identity theif would have to spend hundreds or thousands of hours unlocking each individuals encryption key and then all of their data. No identity thief in his right mind would even attempt this, especially when there are much easier targets.
