I strongly agree and have made the same argument numerous times (though haven’t actually done any harvesting). In my opinion the iPhone has been a huge blow to internet password security due to the keyboard set-up. No one wants to go three screens deep to get a special character to log in. I recommend KeyGrinder if you need a PwdHash solution for the iPhone.

great post, using the same password can be very dangerous!! great article 😉
Yea KeyGrinder is great but my friend was just telling me the other day that they may stop doing updates soon. If they do there is another great one out there but for some reason I just cant think of the name. Anyways back to topic, I strongly agree with you about not using the same password. About a year ago one of my ex’s got a lil smart and decide to see if I used the same password ( at the time I did) and she was able to delete my myspace, facebook and gmail account. I had given her my myspace pswd one day to check something and when we broke up I forgot to change it. Lesson learned but hopefully at least a few people learn from my mistake because it could have been alot worse. Just my two cents.
