Created by Alvin Chang, an independent IT consultant, the Aladdin is a USB keyboard that stores all of your passwords. The idea was inspired by the leaking of 6.5 million LinkedIn passwords last June. Now, this Indiegogo project is trying to improve the current situation of people using simple or identical passwords everywhere by removing the need to memorize passwords. The Aladdin works by generating and remembering a set of alpha-numeric random passwords, each unique to a specific account from your email to Facebook. Once plugged into your computer, it can instantly type in your passwords so you don’t have to.
