Password: Do Not Do This
Passwords are a constant headache to remember and maintain, as a result, users often sacrifice security for convenience. Here is a list of things you should remember when creating or changing your passwords.
- Do not use old passwords. Assume that someone has obtained your old password you used a few years ago.
- Do not use the same password for multiple accounts. If an intruder compromises one account, he can break into the others as well.
- Do not email or text your password to anyone. Email and text communication is one of the least secure methods of sharing information.
- Do not write your password on a sticky note and attach it to the computer screen or underneath the keyboard. The underside of the keyboard is not secure.
