Passwords, Passwords, Passwords
Does it seem like every step you take online requires a password? It’s tempting to use something that’s both easy to remember and type, like “password” or “baseball,” or to reuse a password you’ve used on dozens of sites. But with professional hacking and password theft on the rise, that’s risky. A sound password strategy gives you a combination of security (passwords that are sufficiently complex to resist guessing by humans or computers) and ease of use (not having to remember and constantly peck out long strings of random gibberish).
