Is Your Password Safe And Uncrackable

I read this article the other day written by Sid Kirchleimer who is the author of ” ScamProof Your Life” . The subject was about passwords for our computer , bank account, anything really that needs some form of a password.

After reading this I have gone through and altered all my passwords as they really were very crackable (not sure if that is a word from the dictionary )

Three suggestions.

1. Use at least 12 keystrokes. It is much harder for hackers to figure out. The Georgia Tech Research Institute suggests using a 12-character password as it provides a good balance between security and practicality.

2. Use Upper and Lowercase letters, spaces and underscores, and symbols like @ and %

3. Use passwords that describe your favorite things. That would make it easier for you  to remember.

4. You should never even think about entering credit card information, bank accounts or any passwords, requested by email. Doing this only makes your password prone to getting hacked, so make sure you never even use your own email to save passwords.

Here is a list of passwords that make it easy for those who make it their business to know your business.

  • Password
  • 123456
  • qwerty
  • abc123
  • monkey
  • trustnot
  • dragon
  • baseball
  • 111111
  • iloveyou
  • master
  • 654321
  • superman
  • football
  • qazwsx

The suggestion is,  change your password every 90 days or thereabouts on your email, financial accounts and  websites.

For more information go buy the book “Scamproof Your Life” . It would be a good book for your children to read

Check Out These Websites

Hey here are some websites that I am totally impressed with. Discounts, free-shipping, coupons and more.

This website Freeshipping.org will search over 4,000 stores for free shipping and discounted shipping. Love it, because I am one of those people who begrudge paying for shipping.

Currentcodes.com has a full-time staff of trained individuals whose only job is to find new coupon codes and discount codes and verify the accuracy of the existing database.

Retailmenot.com search coupons codes for 65,000 stores. It is a clear, easy to follow website.

Couponchief.comis another website that is sooo good. Heaps of discounts and coupons and another easy to understand website. Love it.
