Cached Passwords

Cached passwords are the holy grail of hackers and a principal target for information thieves, for this reason you should never save your password on your workstation and never use the same password across systems.

When prompted to save a persistent authentication token such password, you should always say no or never. The only place for a ‘stored’ password is an encrypted and password protected database (for which it should not have the password written down).
