One Time Passwords for Windows?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if anyone had a solution for this, I live in a place where my computers are in pretty public places, and my friends think it is funny to crack my passwords. Quite frankly I a sick and tired of it... Does anyone have a way that I can have a One time password generated on my Phone (Android) and use it to login to my computers?

Thanks.

Why not just make a super long password more than 15 characters both numbers, letters and symbols? In no way can they crack it.

get a biometrics scanner, then they can't hack it.

Sorry i don't know of a onetime password application. I know what you are talking about, but haven't heard of it with windows.

You could also get something to make it so you need a key to turn on your computer.

My thoughts exactly. You must be using some pretty weak, common passphrases if someone can just guess your password.

I don't think there are any such programs--at least, not regular stuff available to non-corporate entities, nothing that would be economical to buy and use.

Use symbols too--and nothing associated with your name, birthday, etc.

Have you made sure that the generic Administrator account is password-protected? That's a very common thing people forget about, and an easy way to gain access to a computer. Also, make sure that the guest account is completely turned off, and make sure your account is the only active user account on the machine.

How do you know they are getting into your computer? They could also be doing something like booting from a USB drive--like linux live (or whatever it's called).

I would suggest to get a fingerprint reader so you can use yours as a password.

I think it´s cheaper than biometric.

If they are using a LiveCD, not much you can do unless you have Windows 7 Ultimate and can encrypt the drive.

They are probably using a password reset utility that they boot of CD/USB.

Change bios Boot order to boot from HD first, add BIOS password, then rivet or lock your case so they cant do a BIOS reset.

EDIT: Also make sure to disable the F12 boot order menu (all motherboards call it something else)
