Have you written down your password?

Recently a client called up and asked if we could help him find his password to his computer.  He had changed it and could not remember the password he had chosen.  The reality of passwords is that we choose really horrible passwords.  We reuse them.  We use too easy of passwords, and end up putting much of our identity and financial information at risk due to the fact that we reuse the same ones over and over again.

Ensure you pick a longer password or a passphrase.  Write it down.  Ensure someone trusted knows where it’s written down.  Don’t reuse the same password over and over again.

Be more aware of how you handle your passwords.  Make them harder to crack.
