disposable passwords?

Not exactly. You can't really have a disposable password. Passwords are meant to be re-used, after all.

But mushpup is the next best thing. You don't throw it away after you use it. You just forget about it until you need it again.

How it works: mushpup uses the form above, or on the mushpup.org home page, to create a strong secure site-specific password. When setting up a user account, just enter your info in the form, copy and paste your password, and then come back for it the next time you need it.

mushpup is not meant for high security sites. But it is perfect for casual sites like wikipedia, pbwiki, or blogger.

Using mushpup notation, you can even put a secure reminder for your password right on the page itself. Here's my password for this blog:

m{this.domain > mws}

Just mushpup it, notate it, and forget about it.
