I’m sure some of you are familiar with the PDS (Personal Digital Assistant) tech login procedure. PDS’s are becoming more and more popular, and they do a pretty good job of providing the answers we need to get things done.
It was a pretty clear signal that the tech was a major factor in the development of our website. My brother, who worked at the company, was the chief engineer for the company who invented the technology, and in the process I got a lot of the information we needed. It wasn’t until I checked out the PDS tech on the site that I realized that I actually had a PDS account. I told him that I needed to find a new one and start the process.
This is a really good reminder to use our own passwords. You can set up your own PDS account on your web servers and store your passwords there. It will be much more difficult for someone to log into your web server and steal your password.
The best advice I can give is that when a company says that it has a PDS solution, it is not fooling anyone. I would prefer to use a password-protected password manager that provides me with an option for keeping my password longer. The only way I could have gotten my PDS account is if I had already created one. I guess it is all about having an account and not having an account.
I am by no means suggesting that you don’t use a password-protected password manager. I just don’t think it is a good idea to do it either.
