Be honest, do you see yours here? Take a little effort (and pride) and make the switch to something a bit tougher!
With the latest password breech of LinkedIn (in addition to many other high profile pass-jacks of the past year), it’s a good idea to keep changing things up, and follow a few simple rules for password creation:
- don’t use your birthday, or easily found answers about yourself
- don’t use the same password for all of your accounts
- combine numbers, capitalization and symbols whenever possible
- set yourself reminders to change things up
Basically, look at those tips like locking the door to your car while leaving it in a parking lot. If you make it a little harder for unscrupulous characters, they’ll move onto the next target that didn’t exercise precautions.
Safe online living will save you money and enhance your security. Take a few minutes to reset your passwords, and avoid the headache of hacks, identity theft and fraudulent charges.
