I’m thinking to what extend being dependent on one password to encrypt all my data is a good idea. While I would expect that I normally will remember the password, I’m unsure about how likely it is that my brain will fail in an unexpected way.
A car accident could theoretically for example damage the neurons that store the password. Is there any reason into the likelihood of regularly used password getting forgotten? Is the threat scenario likely enough to think about how to protect against it?
