Allow to choose and change the dropbox password 12 recovery words

Allow to choose and change the dropbox password 12 recovery words

Dropbox password is onto a nice start. I'd like to be able to choose (and remember) my own 12 recovery words however, instead of having to print/keep somewhere the 12 randomly generated ones.

 

Can you add feature to optionally change the 12 generated words, and let user pick them?

Maybe you could offer 12 rows of words (10 in each row) and the user could pick their choice (as long as it is unique 12 words includin order of words.)

I think remembering a sentence of 12 words (even more... why not) is super easy (at least for me - it would just a sentence), and it would make sense in order to avoid having to "store" the recovery anywhere (other than my brain)

 

So if you go with that, I'd really like freeform choice (instead of even a multiple choice like the other suggestion).

 

People who speak languages other than english could also eaily come up with a sentence of 12 worlds in mixed languages (easy to remember for them, would be even more "secure" as more than one dictionary would be needed by hackers...)
