Password GeneratorWednesday, 11 May 2011 08:09 Written by Vagrant
Your current password is lame and pathetic! You owe it to yourself, your family and your company to ensure that you choose and use passwords that are secure and HARD TO HACK.
By any chance are you using something along the lines of "password", "123123" or perhaps "bailey" as your favorite web password? Well, my friend... your current password is pathetic!
You owe it to yourself, your family and your company to ensure that you choose and use passwords that are secure and HARD TO HACK. I have seen far too many of my own clients with passwords similar to "fluffy81" or "jessie1234". No good.
Your dog's name, your kid's name, your birth year, or ANY personal information is NO GOOD. Dictionary words in any language are NO GOOD.
To be frank, anything you can remember is no good. Don't choose a password you can remember. Choose a password that will protect you online.
To assist with remembering passwords, I suggest using LastPass Password Manager (http://lastpass.com/). It's a cross-browser plugin that goes where you go. Don't worry about remembering all your passwords, just remember one.
