Okay! The most common password for most computers is password1.

Many hackers will know this.

So, in the interest of securing your internet connection, consider making these crucial changes.

Change it to password2

 

Nobody will ever get that.

Now that you're all done laughing, experts recommend as many letters and numbers as possible in your password.

2passw0rd2 is harder

2!passw0rd2 even harder

2!mIpassw0rd2, is tougher to hack

2!mIpassw0rd2,ntirnet3 REALLY hard to hack because of the comma and misspelled words.

Don't use names, addresses, nicknames, school names or etc if you've ever posted any of that information on Facebook - it's the first place Hackers go to find your information.

The more serious systems these days won't accept words or common names in passwords. They have to be gibberish, with a minimum amount of caps, numbers, and symbols.

I made one of those very complicated passwords, but, I kept forgetting it.

Lol, so now I just wrote it down and taped it to the monitor on my computer.

Okay. I know you guys are joking but here's a serious thought: use LastPass! I not only have my passwords saved there but I also save them in a Word doc and in a spreadsheet. Just thought I'd drop that in here. ;)

Having passwords saved in a word doc is a really good idea.

Then all you have to do is cut and paste the password.

No one can follow your key strokes.

 

PS. My comments were made in jest, I hope no one gets offended by them.

Evernote! I can't recommend this program enough! All my notes including passwords are uploaded to the cloud. When I moved computers I just downloaded Evernote, installed and signed in. All my notes were available right away - which is good because I keep my passwords in there.

For passwords, I always like to use an upcoming event, holiday or something that i'm looking forward too. It's tough to forget those and sometimes for me heightens the anticipation of the upcoming event.

Interesting idea. I guess you have to make sure the event is far enough away, or else you'd be changing it every week.

AS long as you don't ever provide that information on Facebook. One of the first things hackers try is kids' birthdays as a password.
