Numerous high-profile hacks have eroded trust in digital security. Huge numbers of people use passwords that are easy to guess. Online security questions rely on information that is often readily available in the age of social media. Complex digital solutions such as cloud-based password managers suffer from the same distrust as other online security.
Digital password managers are widely recommended as the best available solution to help users set up and keep track of the varied, complex passwords needed for online security. However, password management software has a low adoption rate among non-technical users who are uncomfortable storing the passwords to all their accounts in a single, online system.
This password manager in the form of a board game makes passwords both tangible and secure. It does not store your passwords, and nothing is saved online. Instead, it relies on security questions in the form of a personalized crossword puzzle. But unlike typical, online security questions, a hacker cannot reveal your passwords without your game board, even if they have your answers.
