I’m debating whether a passowrd emergency kit (which contains login details as well as 2FA recovery codes) stored in the home is better kept in:
-A fireproof document box. The advantage is that it is fireproof and waterproof. The disadvantage is that, while it stored in an inconspicious place, in a burglary it could be found and easily be carried out. I should not our home is protected with an alarm system.
-In another location in the home that would be virtually impossible for an intruder to find (e.g., think under a floor board with wall to wall carpet overtop, under a piece of nailed down baseboard, etc.) but would not be fireproof.
I’m leaning toward it being very well hidden (not in a fireproof box). My reasoning is that I have three passwords memorized: bitwarden, primary email, and Authy backups. If the house burned down and I lost all my devices, I would still be able to log in. However, the threat of someone stealing the information seems more severe as this would allow access to all accounts. Thoughts?
