I hated kwallet
and just removed it
I can understand the principle but:
If you are going to rely on kwallet
to remember your passwords, YOU will
So when you reinstall, or try another distro, you are stuck.
So you write your passwords down somewhere. This is a BAD thing to do. There's no point in using kwallet
's wonderful encryption(?) if you then write your passwords on a yellow note that's stuck to your monitor.

It's like the "mobile-phone generation" - nobody can remember their mother's telephone number, unless they have their mobile to hand and can click "Address Book -> Names -> Mother".
My work requires me to remember about 70 (at last count) passwords / 6-digit keycodes.
Some of these I have
to change at six week intervals, and some at four week intervals "To improve security". It is driving me mad,, and I am sure most colleagues are choosing stupid passwords because it is driving them mad too.
This isn't "improving" security as they insist, it is making it much
Three months ago they gave me a "Chip & PIN & Photo ID" card. I had to arrange an appointment with "security" within the next 10 days to do this or ...[Something BAD would hapen to me]. I did it. It must have cost them a lot, and I had to produce my passport, utility bills, birth certificate and all.
It still doesn't work, anywhere, and by now I have forgotten my PIN, so it won't ever work.
Can anybody guess, in broad terms please, my employer? Hint: My profile (at left) says I live in the UK.
