Techno Tuesday: Remember Passwords

Passwords are great – if you remember them. Security expert, Steve Gibson, has a solution. Use repetitious symbols:

D0g!(!(!(!(!(!

You can also use this strategy for specific websites. For your home mortgage, try a random but repetitious number sequence with a symbol and two letters (one capitalized) that references your house:

20-20-20-Ho

Easy to remember, right? And, if you type it into Gibson’s website, it estimates it would take 1.83 billion centuries to crack it through a simple online attack.

    At a fraud Coe the other day, he also suggested one password for social sites & a different one for financial sites. I liked that tip! Of course both should include letters, numbers, & characters. I like your tip, thanks!
