Although I’ve got my backups in order and secure and everything, this doesn’t really help if disaster striked completely and deprived me of all units where I can access the various crazy passwords and other information protecting my backups and core services.
(I have a backup access for this, but in some urgent scenarios it would not be ideal.)
So, my question is, if I use WinZip or Keka to create an encrypted/password protected zip-file with some core information. How secure is this from some data breach? Assume a 36+ Character password on it.
Would it be perfectly fine to leave a zip-file like that with some core backup codes etc live out in the wild?
Yes, but this is for securely locking down some files/information and storing them “off-site” in a way that makes it safe from prying, but also easily available if disaster strikes - and without it being Mac-specific to get them “open”.
