comment How can I protect myself from false accusations when our company practices password escrow?
I doubt this even exists. OP invented the story.

Certainly, but using 19th century security-by-obscurity methods in the year 2016 is pretty amusing.

my point is that this security system is not at all foolproof. If the OP has a real concern about being framed for malfeasance, then the sealed envelope trick should definitely not assuage his fears.

Signing it is not foolproof. What if the boss steams it open and then reseals it? What if he takes a high resolution photo of the signature and practices forging it himself hundreds of times until he can do it perfectly?

comment Can a neighbour who installed my router access it?
@GroundZero "it'll automaticly reappear the moment he connects again". Yes, that was my point. That would be a way for him to tell if the neighbor is connecting, if the router doesn't already tell him when the last connection was.

Also note that you might be able to tell if he is connecting to your wifi. You would log into your router as described in this answer and look for the place where it shows connected devices and their assigned internal IP addresses (192.168.x.x). You might see "neighbor's laptop" or something like that. It might show last connection time or not. But I think you can delete the device. If he connects again, it will reappear in the list. Otherwise it will stay gone.

comment From a security standpoint should users be asked to confirm their password when registering?
What about having one of those password strength meters, and the higher the strength the more times they have to repeat it. i.e. if the password strength is up at 80%, they have to type it 8 times. You could even make it exponential. 1 repeat at 10%, 4 times at 20%, 8 at 30%, etc., 256 times at 80%, and 1024 at 100%. This will ensure users remember their passwords, and they will thank you for it later.
