May the 4th is World Password Day. That’s always an occassion to celebrate for us at AgileBits, and a great opportunity to remind everyone to get their passwords into shape. But this year is special: our friends at Intel have asked everyone to #LayerUp, and to help them out, we’re serving layer cake.
Like any cake that’s worth the calories, your security starts with a good strong base: your Master Password. But it shouldn’t stop there. Passwords can be guessed or stolen, and, this year, Intel is reminding everyone to protect themselves by using multiple layers of security, whether that’s with multi-factor authentication, or our own system of two-secret key derivation.
This might sound like a lot of work, but if you have a 1Password.com account, you are already protected by multiple layers of security. You don’t even need to do anything. Huh. Turns out you can have your cake and eat it.
Later today we’ll publish a follow-up post which will go into (much) more detail about how we bake our security layer cake and why. But first, it’s time for presents!
