Introduction: Floppy Password Guard

So many passwords to remember...

So many floppy discs remaining...

Well, why not to make a Floppy Password Guard in 5 minutes? 

Let's make one!

Step 1: Materials

You will need only this:

1. An old floppy disc;

2. Paper label;

3. Pen;

4. Scissor.

Step 2: Cutting the Label

Cut a 8 x 20 mm paper label.

Step 3: Sticking the Label

Stick the paper label on the surface of the disk , after open the metal window.

Step 4: Writing the Password

Write the password (or the girl phone number, or a nuclear launch code) in the label with a fine pen.

Step 5: Hidding the Number

Rotate the disk to hide the label. You can stick more labels also, if you want.

Step 6: Have Peace of Mind

That's it! Now you can have more space in your memory to store more important things than that pesky passwords.

    Good idea, cheap, hiden, best

    I'm fine using KeePass. I used it for a while and I'll never come back. It stores all your usernames and passwords in a crypted file, unlockable with a master password. It also generates random passwords for you

    Clever! I'm totally going to do this. :)

    Your welcome, I constructed it and it works quite nicely

    I'm happy to help you.

    Also you could use avery blank 3x7 sticker sheets and even print the passwords on them using your computer

    If you have a computer with a floppy drive you could just make a hidden folder in the floppy disk using the alt 0160 trick and put a text file in it with your passwords, then you could make really long impossible to guess passwords the just copy and paste them.

    I'm glad you added that you could rotate the inner disk to for more than one password.
    I always try to change up my passwords a little between the various websites I visit, for safety reasons, and I can't always quickly recall which sites have which variations.
    So simple and well done!

    I use firefox's password function, a password randomizer and the FEBE plugin to make backups.
