The Qwertycard itself is printed with the letters of the alphabet organized in the style of the classic QWERTY keyboard (which you’re probably using right now). Every Qwertycard is printed with a unique code that assigns the letters of the alphabet to random characters. Using the one-of-a-kind base code on your Qwertycard, a secret word of your choice, and the coded characters for each letter of the website you’re using, you should end up with a distinct and secure password.
Qwertycard’s promise of unique codes means that no two users will have cards with the same base code. In addition, the randomly assigned code characters for the keyboard alphabet add an extra layer of unique security. Online password managers cause concern for some, because having every password available in one place online can seem scary in the age of hackers. There are also obvious risks to carrying around a physical copy of your secret password code, but Qwertycard added the user’s secret word to mitigate that danger.
Just in case you lose your Qwertycard, each card comes with a copy of your cipher for safekeeping. It does not, on the other hand, include any kind of guarantee to help you through the anxiety of hoping that no malicious individuals will be able to break your code. The major benefit of Qwertycards is the ability to create a new unique password that is secure and memorable for every site you use. Qwertycards cost $4.99 each, and shipping is free.
