Accountability Password



Estimated Time:


Accountability password was created as a means to improve self-control without involving a sponsor. One might have problems finding someone they can trust with their addiction/self-control issues. In these cases, it is best to have an option that allows you to regulate yourself.

The way this works is by using computationally intensive hashing algorithms to generate a password. The user inputs a string and the no. of rounds that should be run. The page gives an estimate of the time it will take to generate the password on your computer. The resulting password can be used to block access to accounts/services/web filters etc.

This way, you can regain access to the service when needed at a later date. But, it prevents you from immediate gratification for at least a few hours. You must exercise self-control along with this service. When trying to regenerate the password, take time to think whether you really need it.
