Using the Same Password for Everything
Using the same password for every is a common mistake, and one that hackers love! Hackers who compromise your computer system will use passwords stolen on different sites and hope hey strike gold.
Things to avoid
- Avoid reusing passwords. Advantage easy to remember. Disadvantage easy to hack.
- Avoid familiar things like names and birthdays.

- Use a password tracking and creation tool such as Keypass or Dashlane.
