How do I add additional fields to a login?
Within forghetti you are able to generate numerous different types of passwords, codes, PIN numbers and so on. We call these “forghettible fields”. You can do this when you are first creating a login, or indeed you can edit a login and can add additional fields to a login.
You can generate the following different types:
A combination of letters, numbers and symbols
A combination of words, numbers and symbols
Letters and numbers
Words and numbers
Numbers only (for generating PIN codes of any length)
It is a really great feeling to know that you are able to have a different PIN number across all your bank cards, online systems, printers… you will be more secure than ever before!
To add fields to a login, follow the following steps
Click on the login
Click on the link to the details
Click on the link to edit the details
Click the field to edit the type of field
You can edit the length and type
Click “Add forghettible field” and this will enable you to have more than one field for a login.
You might need a Password, PIN and Memorable word for example to access a bank account. Now all you need to remember is your doodle
Why would I need to use different field types
The motivation for using different types may be down to a combination of factors:
A limitation of the service that you wish to access.
e.g. Some older websites do not allow for special characters to be used in their password fields. So in this case you can use the option for “Letters and Numbers” only.
A need to have something that is easy to verbally share on a temporary basis.
e.g. You might need to give friends access to a holiday site for a short period to add in their information. You can share a “Words and Numbers” password more easily than complicated passwords.
A need to have something that you can easily transpose.
e.g. You might need to login to a system that is offline - for example your printer to push scanned documents to Dropbox. You can use a “Words and Numbers” or a “PIN” to give you a code that is easy to read and copy.
For generating memorable words, first pet name, mothers maiden name that is not actually giving real information away.
e.g. Your bank or credit card company may ask you for a Password, PIN number and a memorable word to access their systems. forghetti™ can produce all of these for you. Even your Mother’s maiden name can be randomly generated by forghetti.
For generating pin codes of varying lengths.
e.g. Do you sometime need a PIN number to access a system that you use only infrequently? Do you have a visa card for a bank account that you use only from time to time. Currently many people use the same PIN across all of their accounts. Not any more! The forghetti™ app generates PIN codes of any length for you to use. When you next need to remember it, just draw your doodle on your phone and hey-presto, you have it.
Remember - for all of these scenarios, no-one in the forghetti team ever knows your passwords, memorable words, letters, PINs. They are not stored anywhere.
