Write down your passphrase on paper also

  • I've read stories and didn't think it would happen to me, but alas - the text file of my passphrase was corrupted and I hadn't backed it up yet. My loss is about $1600 USD which could be worse, but that's the lesson. Write down your passphrase on a physical paper, twice even, hide one and have one near your computer.

    I "liked" your post, even though I obviously dont "like" that this happened to you. That sucks, thanks for sharing. I am always conflicted about writing down keys on paper. I prefer an encrypted file on a remote (and not connected to the internet) device.
