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

  1. Avoid reusing passwords. Advantage easy to remember. Disadvantage easy to hack.
  2. Avoid familiar things like names and birthdays.
  3. Do use character substitution instead of clear text. HappyDay becomes H@ppyD@y or PurpleMonkey Becomes Purpl3M0nk3y.
  4. Use a password tracking and creation tool such as Keypass or Dashlane.
